Course Descriptions

Biomedical engineers use science, engineering, and mathematics to understand and solve medical problems. The biomedical engineering program at Rose-Hulman produces engineers with the medical and biological expertise needed to solve health care problems during careers in technical and health-related industries, as well as in government or industrial laboratories.

BE 539 - Multiscale Biomechanics

This course provides a comprehensive exploration/overview of the multiple approaches available for the analysis of multiscale media, beginning from classical approaches in composite theory and moving on to various structure-function and homogenization models. Specific attention will be placed on the application of these ideas to heterogeneous and finite deformation biological tissues (e.g. bone, cartilage, ligament, vessels, etc.). This course will serve as a Biomechanics track elective.
