Engineering class


Biomechanics Major

The biomechanics track includes rigorous education in mechanical engineering within the interdisciplinary framework of the curriculum. This includes courses in materials, metallurgy, thermodynamics, fluids, transport phenomena and design. This curriculum, which includes courses in electrical circuits and computers, supports interests focused on biomechanics and biomaterials. Senior year, the curriculum features intensive biomedical instrumentation design and computer laboratories emphasizing modern experimental applications. In addition, the senior year capstone design course places the student on a multidisciplinary team to solve an actual industrial design problem.
