ES 301 Bioengineering Systems and Design

This course applies systems concepts to study human physiology. Engineering models and concepts associated with various physiological systems, such as the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and renal system, are introduced for students to gain an in-depth understanding of the key physiological functions of the human body. Students will develop analytical tools for mathematically modeling physiological systems to understand the inter-dependency of these systems. [W]
