Lectures: 14 sessions for 7 weeks, 1 hour / session
Designed as a freshmen seminar course, faculty from various School of Engineering departments describe the research and educational opportunities specific to and offered by their departments. Background lectures by the 20.010J staff introduce students to the fundamental scientific basis for bioengineering. Specially produced videos provide additional background information that is supplemented with readings from newspaper and magazine articles.
A five page paper on a bioengineering problem is due by session 13.
Grades are entirely based on the 5 page paper assignment.
