0 Credits
One semester of paid work experience in biomedical engineering.
BIME-430
3 Credits
This course is focused on fluid, heat and mass transfer processes for valuable bio-products such as bio-pharmaceuticals. In particular, this course reviews the topics of fluid mixing, heat transfer, mass transfer and a variety of unit operations (filtration, centrifugation, cell disruption, chromatography, etc.). The course includes several topics on fermenters/bioreactor design and downstream processing for cell culture operations. The course is intended to provide to the students with an understanding of transfer processes and an overview of the most common separation processes employed in bioengineering.
BIME-250
3 Credits
A first course for biomedical engineers introducing units, physical properties, dimensions, dimensional analysis, data analysis and data presentation for engineering, stoichiometry of biological reactions, simple material and energy balances for batch and continuous systems in steady and unsteady states. This course provides the students with the essential skills required to analyze biosystems, and special focus is given to developing problem solving skills with a biological context.

    RIT researchers build micro-device to detect bacteria, viruses

    Ke Du and Blanca Lapizco-Encinas, both faculty-researchers in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering, worked with an international team to collaborate on the design of a next-generation miniature lab device that uses magnetic nano-beads to isolate minute bacterial particles that cause diseases. This new technology improves how clinicians isolate drug-resistant strains of bacterial infections and difficult-to-detect micro-particles such as those making up Ebola and coronaviruses.
