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 550 - Research Methods in Biomechanics

  • Credit Hours: 3R-3L-4C
  • Term Available: W
  • Prerequisites: BE 331 - Biomechanics or consent of instructor
  • Corequisites: None

Focuses on the wide range of research methods used in the field of biomechanics. Current literature will be reviewed to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of various research methodologies. Topics will vary based on student interests and background, but may include topics such as motion/force analysis, soft tissue and bone mechanics, joint biomechanics, analysis of joint replacements, and fracture fixation. Laboratory activities will reinforce the lecture topics and students will have the opportunity to investigate a biomechanics research topic in their area of interest.
