Introduction to Bioengineering

Course Description


This MIT course - 20.010J Introduction to Bioengineering - with 16 video lectures, is represented by the diverse curricula offered by most Departments in the School of Engineering. The course samples the wide variety of bioengineering options for students who plan to major in one of the undergraduate Engineering degree programs. The beginning lectures describe the science basis for bioengineering with particular emphasis on molecular cell biology and systems biology. Bioengineering faculty will then describe the bioengineering options in a particular engineering course as well as the type of research conducted by faculty in the department.

Introduction to Bioengineering

The BioMEMS lab at Whitehead Institute has developed a device that makes DNA fingerprinting faster, more accurate, and portable. The chip-based device miniaturizes a process called electrophoresis onto a small glass chip. In operation, samples of DNA are injected in microchannels etched onto the chip's surface, and an electrical current separates the DNA molecules based on their size. (Image by Sam Ogden.
