Course title
Biomedical Technology Based on Chemical Engineering


Course content
Informatic processing system in living things are based on chemical phenomena. Philosophy of chemical engineering is very important for biomimetic technology. Students studies classical philosophy of chemical engineering for new biomimetic informatic and electronic technology.
Purpose of class
Philosophy of biomedical engineering is established.
Goals and objectives
  1. Developing new philosophy for biomedical technology based on chemical engineering.
  2. Creativity for new bioelectronic device
  3. Understanding biomedical problem which may be solved by chemical engineering
