A BME student studies in the Academic Resource Center

BME Team Project Room

Located in WH-320, available for BME group activities

Biomedical Fluids Mechanics Laboratory

Located in WH-318, this laboratory is used for BME 320, the second core laboratory course in BME. The goal of this course is to teach students the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and their application to biological fluids and biomedical devices. This undergraduate teaching laboratory contains 10 workstations equipped with state-of-the-art manual and computerized equipment. Each individual station is equipped with a Brookfield cone and plate viscometer with computerized data acquisition capability; low- and high-volumetric flow-rate pumps with computerized controllers; semi-automatic tension meters; micro contact angle meters; conductivity probes; Cannon-Fenske viscometers; and various pressure gauges, among other smaller items.

Design Laboratory

Located in WH-308, this laboratory is used for the design and development of biomedical engineering systems and implantable devices that use either synthetic materials or hybrid (biological-synthetic) systems and analysis and design of replacements for the heart, kidneys, and lungs.

Instrumentation and Measurements Laboratory

Located in WH-319, this laboratory is used for the first of four core undergraduate biomedical engineering laboratory courses. Students will gain hands-on experience in chemical, mechanical, optical, and electrical measurement and data acquisition techniques in all three biomedical engineering tracks.

Physiology Laboratory

Located in WH-313, this laboratory is used for demonstrating basic concepts of bioengineering design through experimental procedures involving humans and experimental animals. Experiments include nerve action, electrocardiography, mechanics of muscle, membranes, and noninvasive diagnostics in humans.
