Bioengineering: Building a Better You - Rising 11th-12th Graders

This week-long course explores how bioengineers use engineering and scientific principles to solve problems related to our health and well-being. Become familiar with working principles of the design and usage of biomedical instruments, devices and implants. Surgery class and several labs—bioinstrumentation, atomic force microscopy, cell culture and histology—will help you understand what bioengineers do and the challenges they face. Finally, tour Clemson’s biomedical research labs and talk to students and researchers about their cutting-edge research.

This course is offered in Session Three (June 14-20) and Session Eight (July 26-August 1).
