Design, Modeling, and Simulation for High Technology Systems in Medicine
Healthcare is changing at a very rapid pace. So does its attendant complexity and ever increasing reliance on high technology support. Technical medicine, where sophisticated, technology-based methods are used in education of healthcare professionals and in treatment of patients, is becoming a recognized discipline. Such methods require a new generation engineers, scientists, and systems designers to integrate medical and technical domains. With this in mind, this concept proposes a new honors engineering technical elective, to train innovators is this emerging domain. The course will be open to honors engineering students from all departments.
In this course students will investigate current medical and health care practices using high technology. The class will focus on systems design, modeling, and simulation technologies as applied to medicine.
