BEE 3500 Heat and Mass Transfer in Biological Engineering

Course description

Focuses on understanding the principles of heat and mass transfer in the context of biological (biomedical/bioprocessing/bioenvironmental) systems. Emphasizes physical understanding of transport processes and simple reaction rates with application examples from plant, animal, and human biology in the bioenvironment (soil/water/air), and industrial processing of food and biomaterials. Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. Outcome 2: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Outcome 3: An ability to integrate modern biology with engineering principles.
