Biomedical engineers need to be able to model transport processes quickly and accurately to produce competitive and safe products. These products include items like drug-eluting stents for coronary artery disease and therapeutic contact lenses for glaucoma. Collaborative learning strategies are used to help students gradually build confidence and skill. Learning goals that include literature reviews, problem formulation, the ability to balance skepticism and creativity, and communicating results are assessed with standard tools: homework, exams, reports, and oral presentations. Student deliverables are used for post-graduation interviews and at a universitysponsored STEM symposium.
