Buenaventura IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology

CLU Student Short Presentations
CLU Students in Bioengineering and Allied Majors


Wednesday, February 26 2014 7 PM
CLU - Ahmanson Science Building

We continue our series of research reviews from CLU students. In short presentations, students from the Bioengineering program and related fields at CLU relate their research efforts and results.  Please welcome these young scientists and engineers!

Bioengineering students at CLU are given multiple opportunities to develop practical, hands-on skills for their careers, emphasizing techniques and practices for acquiring and interpreting data from biological systems. Inquiry-based undergraduate student research is a central component of the bioengineering program, with a focus on the critical analysis of the issues that arise at the interfaces between living and non-living materials. All seniors undertake an independent design project that includes optimized solutions and designs.

The bioengineering program is fully supported by an array of experimental laboratories for classroom and design projects. Coupled with these are sophisticated computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities for predictive modeling of the structure and performance of three-dimensional systems. Together, these capabilities provide the bioengineering students with the powerful ability to develop and refine predictive models to solve complex problems. Finally, bioengineering students are frequently involved in interactive projects requiring integration of these interdisciplinary topics, which prepares them both for personal growth as well as a rewarding career.
