Minimum Credits: 4
Maximum Credits: 4
A foundation of basic systems concepts is built through combining modeling of dynamic systems with physiological examples. Mathematical models of physiological systems are developed using a combination of systems understanding (analogous thinking, engineering synthesis and analysis, and integrative system approaches in solving problems) and bioengineering design (recognizing the potential applications of both engineering principles to biology and biological principles to engineering). These models are then used to address biological/clinical questions. Upon completing the course, the student should be able to: demonstrate skill and competence in methods of dynamic systems modeling through (a) building dynamic models of bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical, and physiological systems, (b) solving systems of equations representing dynamic models including analytical, numerical, and graphical software methods, (c) validating models including descriptive, predictive, and explanative validation, and (d) applying models to scientific and engineering applications including analysis and synthesis relative to identification and simulation. Describe physiological processes in dynamic system terms.
