Campus SMME
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Advanced Biomaterials
Course Code BME-840
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes None
Course Objectives At the end of the course the students will understand the fundamental relationships between the mechanical properties of a range of biomaterials, and the biomedical applications of those materials, and the principles that have led to the choice of biomaterials.
Detail Content This course provides a theoretical and practical understanding of the mechanical properties of biomaterials. The course aims to bring an understanding of the fundamental relationships between the mechanical properties of a range of biomaterials and the biomedical applications of those materials. It looks at several applications of materials and the principles that have led to the choice of biomaterials for those applications. The use and properties of each type of material will be discussed in the light of current clinical applications (implants, surgical tools, catheters, biological prosthetic devices). Main areas covered in this course will be Overview of Biomaterials, Mechanical Behavior and Mechanical Property Tests, Polymers, Metallic Biomaterials, Bioceramics, Composite biomaterials, Biofilm and approaches to control biofilm, Coatings and their application in medical devices, Natural Biomaterials etc.
