Matter and energy are the building blocks of our universe.
For many of us, coffee magically appears every morning at the press of a button or served by a smiling barista at our favourite café.
Chemical engineers, however, see coffee as the product of a series of physical and chemical processes through which fresh coffee beans picked from a plant are converted into the delicious (and often necessary) cup of coffee we all enjoy.
You need more than a digital system and basic programming to make your electronics work- you have to understand electricity, sensors, and what it takes to bring everything to life.
In this course, the basics of electricity and electrical circuits will be covered.
We welcome each university to organize a group of students to study course packages in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia.
Many course packages have a minimum and maximum class size, so we encourage you to register your students early.
Courses do not receive UBC credit but credit may be granted by the student's home university (at its discretion).
This course provides an introduction to biological engineering, covering subjects that include introductions to microbiology, cell biology, and genetic engineering, bioprocessing for the production of biofuels, foods and pharmaceuticals, biomaterials, and recent advances in tissue engineering.
Given these astounding technological advances, human beings are, as a species, faced with new ethical quandaries, and the ethics and social aspects of bioengineering are therefore also discussed.
It includes testing, analysis, & computer modeling.
Nowadays, new products (smart-home devices, portable electronics, cars, appliances) are getting more intelligent and more connected.
