Course Aims

The course Tissue Engineering is designed to help students establish the fundamental knowledge and sense, as well as to introduce about the basic engineering techniques applied in the field. Tissue engineering is an emerging biomedical engineering field which applies both biologic and engineering technologies to regenerate damaged tissues and even substitute non-functioning organs in human bodies.

This course is set up in such a way that student can understand this interdisciplinary subject with minimal background. Its major components include cell and tissue biology, biomaterials, and the engineering and clinical implementation. Clinical applications covered in this course include tissue regeneration of skin, bone, cartilage, etc.
