Biomedical Engineering Innovation is a fully online course that introduces biomedical engineering to high school students by (1) modeling biological systems and designing experiments to test those models and (2) introducing engineering principles to solve design problems that are biological, physiological, and/or medical. Students will model human efficiency and the cardiovascular system. Students are expected to use the informational content being taught in math, physics and biology and to apply this knowledge to the solution of practical problems encountered in biomedical engineering.
You will learn about Biomedical Engineering from experts in the field through lectures, assignments, and hands-on design projects.
While the course is largely asynchronous, it is not self-paced. Below are links to the course schedules for Summer 2021.
Course Learning Objectives:
Biomedical Engineering Innovation will consist of the following basic student requirements:
How is this course different from others?
Many of our past students are applying to colleges and universities across the country!

Course Title on Transcript: Biomedical Engineering Innovation
The course materials are divided into modules which can be accessed online via the Blackboard Learning Management Systems (LMS). A module will have several sections, including an overview, video lectures, readings, quizzes, discussions, and assignments/labs. Each module will also include several live office hour sessions each week.
All additional course materials will be provided to the student as part of the course. A lab kit of materials needed for the various labs in the course will be mailed out to students early in the course.
Students will need a computer that meets our technical requirements in order to participate in this course. Additionally, the computer should have:
Who developed this course?
Biomedical Engineering Innovation was developed by Dr. Eileen Haase and Dr. Brock Wester.
What is the workload?
This is a 3-credit college-level course, so it requires a serious time commitment. It is expected that each module will take approximately 7–10 hours per week in the spring, summer 12-week, and fall sessions and twice that time in the summer term 1 and term 2 condensed sessions. Here is an approximate breakdown:
