PRCO512 MORPHOLOGICAL AND MICROSCOPIC DEFINITIONS OF VEGETABLE DRUGS 3 3 0
BIOE501 TECHIQUES IN MOLECULAR BIOENGINEERING 3 3 0
This course will teach principles of wet lab for molecular biology, applying them to particular cell models, and general molecular biology laboratory procedures and safety implications. Student will be introduced to PCR, gel electrophoresis, imaging, Western blotting and site-directed mutagenesis techniques.
BIOE502 TECHNIQUES IN TISSUE CULTURE AND CELLULAR BIOENGINEERING 3 3 0
This is a course will begin with introducing practical skills for the isolation of animals cells for in vitro studies, maintenance of animal cells in vitro, manipulation of animal cells in vitro, and application of molecular techniques to in vitro situations. This course also designed to bridge cell biology with engineering. At the completion of this course, the students should be able to: Discuss the molecular and cellular basis of life from an engineering perspective, identify crucial molecular parameters involved in cellular events measure and manipulate molecular parameters experimentally, apply engineering principles, concepts, and mathematical modelling in studying molecular parameters, cell structure, function, and appropriately capture the salient features of the cellular phenomena. In addition, the students should be able to manipulate the behaviour of biological cells, examine structure-function relationship and explore and criticize the existing and emerging technologies that exploit and extend our knowledge of molecular and cell biology.
PRCO505 TOXIC AND HALLUCINOGENIC PLANTS 3 3 0
BIOE513 PHYSIOLOGY FOR ENGINEERS 3 3 0
This course will teach students to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to cellular and systems physiology, including function, dysfunction, and the mechanisms that underlie treatment. The course will also addresses professional and ethical responsibility associated with the development, testing, and implementation (or withholding) of biomedical devices or treatments. The techniques, skills and tools necessary for engineering practice will be covered in addition to teach students to design, conduct, and analyze experiments. Topics may include the nervous system, striated and smooth muscle, and respiratory, renal, and cardiovascular systems.
PRCO511 PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY 3 3 0
BIOE507 BIOSENSORS 3 3 0
This course will cover the principles, technologies, methods and applications of biosensors and bioinstrumentation. The objective of this course is to link engineering principles to understanding of biosystems in sensors and bioelectronics. It will provide the student with detail of methods and procedures used in the design, fabrication and application of biosensors and bioelectronic devices. The fundamentals of measurement science are applied to optical, electrochemical, mass, and pressure signal transduction. Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to explain biosensing and transducing techniques, design and construct biosensors instrumentation.
