Model Course ePortfolios
BME 441.01, Senior Design Project in Biomedical Engineering, Spring 2011
Introduction to product development from the perspective of solving biomedical, biotechnological, environmental, and ergonomic problems. Teamwork in design, establishing customer needs, writing specifications, and legal and financial issues are covered in the context of design as a decision-based process. A team design project provides the opportunity to apply concepts covered in class. Formulation of optimal design problems in biomedical and physiological settings. Introduces optimization techniques for engineering design and modeling for compact and rapid optimization of realistic biomedical engineering problems. 3 credits.
Instructor: Dr. Jonathan Liu
ePortoflios are a requirement for course completion.
Dr. Liu will join Dr. Gary Halada and Dr. Imin Kao and represent the Department of Engineering in the Making Connections - Connecting to Learning project involving integrative learning and eportfolios. They also have applied for a NSF grant for developing a problem-based learning model which includes the eportfolio process. For more information on eportfolios and the project, contact Nancy Wozniak in The Faculty Center, ext. 22780. firstname.lastname@example.org

Few words from the e-Portfolio....
Blindness is, in medical terms, is a condition for the loss of vision due to physiological or neurological factors. It is also referred to a condition in which vision cannot be corrected with prescribed glasses or contact lenses. Blindness has a variety of causes, such as age-related degeneration, diseases, genetic defects, poisoning, and physical/environmental eye injuries. Blindness has been one of the leading symptoms that were inflicted by negative physiological or physical influence to the eye. Because of this, it causes traumatic impacts to the emotional state of the patients, which produce severe inconvenience to their daily lifestyle.
