Bridging the gap between pure physics and engineering through the development of technical applications for researching natural phenomena. Johns Hopkins University’s Doctor of Engineering program provides professional engineers with the advanced technical expertise they need to succeed in industry and the public sector by emphasizing creative problem solving and the innovative application of technical knowledge. Johns Hopkins Engineering’s Healthcare Systems Engineering program will prepare you to tackle modern healthcare’s most pressing and complex challenges.
The Applied Biomedical Engineering Practice and Innovation course combines coursework with hands-on lab sessions. Courses at Johns Hopkins Engineering let you balance work, family, and life, while advancing your career to the next level. Students are required to choose a focus area to follow (focus area options include Imaging, Instrumentation, or Translational Tissue Engineering).
Deeply interdisciplinary, biomedical engineering applies modern approaches from the experimental life sciences in conjunction with theoretical and computational methods from engineering, mathematics and computer science to the solution of biomedical problems of fundamental importance, such as human health. An industrial liaison office also fosters interaction between Hopkins biomedical engineering teams and industry, resulting in exciting collaboration and employment opportunities. Opportunities include teaching or academic research, medicine, and industrial research and development.
This course will cover hands-on experimental and design work primarily in the areas of physiology, cell and tissue engineering, and biomedical instrumentation. In addition to teaching and allowing students to perform state-of-the art experimental techniques, this course will emphasize the business end of biomedical engineering innovation including identification of engineered needs and FDA regulation. 585.601 and 585.602 Physiology for Applied Biomedical Engineering I and II and 585.615 Mathematical Methods for Applied Biomedical Engineering or 535.641 Mathematical Methods for Engineers must be completed.
The course covers mathematical techniques needed to solve advanced problems encountered in applied biomedical engineering. Fundamental concepts are presented with emphasis placed on applications of these techniques to biomedical engineering problems. Topics include solution of ordinary differential equations using the Laplace transformation, Fourier series and integrals, solution of partial differential equations including the use of Bessel functions and Legendre polynomials and an introduction to complex analysis.
