Teaching Laboratories

BME Computer Laboratory located in WH-308, open to BME undergraduate students.  

BME Team Project Room located in WH-320, available for BME group activities

Biomedical Fluids Mechanics Laboratory
Located in WH-320, this lab is used for BME320, 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 ten workstations 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, various pressure gauges, among other smaller items.

Design Laboratory
Located in WH-311, The design laboratory is used for BME419/420. The 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 lab is used for BME315, the first of four core undergraduate biomedical engineering laboratory courses. This course is designed to teach chemical, mechanical, optical and electrical measurement and data acquisition techniques to students in all three biomedical engineering tracks.

Physiology Laboratory
Located in WH-313, the lab is used for BME405. The 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.
