|Abstract||Introduction to engineering mechanics with applications in biology and medicine: kinematics and statics of rigid bodies and systems. Basic introduction to deformation and failure of materials under load.|
|Objective||Students can solve problems of elementary engineering mechanics, and understand how these are relevant to biology and medicine.|
|Content||Basic notions: position and velocitiy of particles, rigid bodies, planar motion, kinematics of rigid body, force, couple, power.|
Statics: static equivalence, force-couple system, center of forces, centroid, principle of virtual power, equilibrium, constraints, statics, friction.
Effects of mechanical load, and material stresses and deformation in tension, compression, bending, and torsion.

|4 credits||3G||S. Panke, J. G. Snedeker|
|Abstract||An introduction to biology for engineers: basic biochemistry, cell metabolism (principles of energy and mass transfer in cellular systems), cell biology (structure and composition of cells, transport processes across cell membranes, growth and reproduction of cells), cellular and molecular biophysics, quantitative tools used in bio- and biomedical engineering|
|Objective||Students that already posses an engineering background will be exposed to a broad introduction of fundamental concepts in the fields of biology and chemistry. Focus will be given to aspects relevant to research and development projects in the fields of biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, or biomedical devices. The course will highlight technically exploitable elements in biology and chemistry, to provide the basic understanding and a necessary vocabulary for interdisciplinary communication with biologists / biotechnologists.|
|Content||Basic biochemistry, cell metabolism (principles of energy and mass transfer in the cell, biocatalysis and enzymes, cellular respiration, protein synthesis, regulation), cellular biology (structure and composition of cells, transport processes across cell membranes, growth and reproduction of cells) , introduction to biotechnology tools and applications of molecular and cellular engineering.|
