  • Designed to help senior students to be prepared for their graduate course by equipping them with the mindset of scientific researchers.

    Students will be required to get engaged in a research project of their own interest or perform literature search to write a thorough review article of a given field.

  • This course is intended primarily as an introduction to the properties and applications of nanoscale materials and systems in biomedicine field for undergraduates. The first half of course will cover the most up-to-date comprehensive reviews of the synthesis of nanomaterials (nanostructures) used in biology and medicine as well as the physical, chemical, biochemical and surface properties of these materials. The second half of course will cover state-of-the-art updates of such nanomaterials (nanosystems) engineered for biological and medical applications. From tissue engineering to drug delivery systems, all aspects of this important and growing field will be thoroughly addressed. The course will also present clinical uses of the nanomaterials to enhance detection, prevention and treatment of disease.
  • Overview
    Bioengineering laboratory I is a core mandatory course.
    Students earn 4 credits.
    Each laboratory session is designed
    to have close relation with other courses offered by the department. In
    particular, some undergraduate 2nd year elective courses (Anatomy &
    Physiology, Bioinstrumentation fundamentals, Bio Data Structure) should be
    integrated with the lab contents
    Course organization
    Each lab is composed of lecture (1 hr) and lab work (8 hr).
    2 areas are covered
    Bioinformatics and Systems biology
    (Spring week
    2
    ~ 9)
    Physiology and neuroscience (Spring
    week
    10 ~ 15)
    Bioengineering Lab II in the next
    semester will cover
    Bioinstrumentation
    Bio/Nano Engineering
    Course management
    Course coordinator (rotation by all
    faculty members) will be in charge of publishing lab manual and assigning
    sessions.
    Each faculty member will be in
    charge of 1 session (lecture and lab TA
    ).

  • Anatomy & Physiology is a course designed to give students an introduction to the physiology and anatomy of the human body. This course provides students an opportunity to study the structure and functions of body systems. The student will learn how the body works, how to maintain its normal functions and the consequences of injury or disease. Clinical aspects and contemporary bioengineering application will also be introduced.


  • This course introduces essential concepts and techniques in data engineering for developing bio-information systems. Essential data engineering techniques including operating systems, programming languages, database systems, and artificial intelligence are explained. Students are required to develop their own bio-information systems to consolidate their understanding on those techniques.
  • This
    is an advanced bioinformatics course for genomics and functional genomics. Introductory
    part of the course will deal with the characteristics of several representative
    genomes in virus, prokaryotes, archeas and eukaryotes. Student will study about
    the computational analysis of genome structures, various levels of genetic and
    epigenetic gene expression regulation mechanism, and several state-of-the-art
    applications of them on the current biomedical industry. Several papers will be
    selected for each scheduled subject as reading materials. The summary report, presentation
    and discussions about the selected papers will be evaluated.


  • Designed to help students keep abreast of bleeding-edge nucleic acid technologies in modern biology and bioengineering based on a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of molecular biology.

    Covers topics pertaining to genetic engineering, synthetic biology, genomics, bioinformatics, and chemical / cell biotechnology.
