The Bioengineering program will be able to integrate engineering science, rigorous mathematical tools and a quantitative approach to the life sciences and apply this spectrum of knowledge in an interdisciplinary fashion to provide solutions to basic and applied biological and medical problems. This goal will be accomplished by offering to the students an integrated set of courses aimed at providing a thorough introduction to the complex and interdisciplinary field of Bioengineering: Teach engineering science, analysis, and design in the context of quantitative approaches to solving life science and medicine-related problems. Integrate interdisciplinary aspects of biology, physiology, and engineering within courses and design projects. Emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of Bioengineering, in terms of problem solving, design, within the framework of interdisciplinary teams focusing on the dialogue between "biology-inspired engineering" and "biology as a specific arm of applied engineering principles." Immerse students in key life science and medical principles, while focusing on understanding cell/molecular-level events through quantitative analysis and modeling. Provide an exceptional learning environment with significant instruction by Bioengineering faculty and researchers in collaboration with experts from other fields, especially the Health Science Campus. In this curriculum, incoming freshmen will first and foremost be trained as solid Temple engineers, focusing on applying engineering science, design, and analysis to real life problems specifically in the areas of biology and medicine. This firm engineering foundation will be further enhanced with newly developed Bioengineering courses in specific pathways, such as: Biomaterials: A focus on the design, development, and uses of biomaterials in biology and medicine. It also explores the host-biomaterial interface and interactions. Bioimaging: A focus on design, development, and uses of imaging modalities and techniques in biology. Bioinstrumentation: A focus on the design, development, and use of instruments used to record, process, and/or control biological functions. Biomechanics: A focus on the interaction between forces and motions in tissues, organisms, and biomedical materials. Tissue Engineering: A focus on building functional tissues using cells and scaffolds and repairing diseased tissues and organs at the cellular and molecular level. Neuroengineering: A focus on using engineering to understand and interact with neural tissues. Pre-med: A broad-based Bioengineering curriculum which fulfills current pre-med course requirements. Hands-on engineering experience will be gained through intense laboratory coursework and by solving real-life biomedical problems. Students specializing in bioelectronics will complete the general requirements for a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Graduates from Temple’s Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering program will have a solid foundation in both engineering and life sciences, as well as a strong sense for translational biomedical research. Students will be trained to understand and employ, in a real-world setting, basic and applied knowledge from diverse areas of engineering to solve biological and medical problems. This knowledge will enable graduates to join and lead interdisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and clinicians to solve fundamental problems in society. Graduates will be prepared to enter careers designing innovative medical devices and diagnostic equipment, creating smart materials and other areas that positively impact healthcare and standard of living nationally and globally.
