EGR361 Introduction to Biomechanics

The course introduces biomechanical principles and their application from a quantitative and rehabilitation perspective. Primary topic areas will include kinematics and kinetics of human movement including modern measurement techniques in human movement science. A model-based description of the mechanical behavior of biological tissues and how biomechanical and neural factors interact in human movement will also be introduced. Labs will provide the student with an understanding of fundamental techniques used in biomechanical analyses and rehabilitation engineering design and development. Prerequisites: BIO 153 and EGR 242.

EGR365 Biomedcl Engr Rsrch andInstrmntn

This course focuses on laboratory research projects and topics of current interest that are not normally covered in other established courses. Students are expected to be actively engaged in the research and design activity by performing experiments, simulations, or related lab tasks and also by conducting literature review for a project. Through participation in experimental/engineering designs, students will learn how to collect and generate data for papers, posters, and presentations to be used in a professional seminar or journal articles. Content varies from year to year, and are determined by both instructor and student interest. Prerequisite: Permission of the Department Chair. Concurrent Requisite: EGR305. (3 units; Spring)

EGR461 Rehabilitation Engineering

The course provides a basic understanding of assistive technology research and application in: wheelchair technology, augmentative communication, computer access, home and work site modifications, environmental access, and prosthetics. Course also includes a focus on novel prosthetic materials. Prerequisite: EGR 242. (3 units; As offered)

EGR491 Research Project

This special registration permits the completion of upper division degree requirements for transfer or other students, program requirement changes, or other special circumstances in which students have partial but not full credit toward a specific degree requirement. It also provides the opportunity for recognition of supervised academic experiences that are not included in traditional curriculum. Registration requires approval by the dean and sponsoring faculty member. The determination of degree credits is at the time of registration. Prerequisite: EGR 101 and Permission of the Dean. (1-3 units; Fall)
