Course: BIOL 101EN. Introduction to Biological Principles for Engineering (2)
Introductory level course specifically designed for Engineering majors, to introduce diverse biological frameworks that are relevant to several disciplines within engineering, with a special emphasis on mechanistic and dynamic features of biological systems at all scales. The course surveys several fundamental concepts in biology, including mechanisms of evolution, genetics and heredity, ecological relationships among species (including the impacts of human activity on ecosystems), cell biology, energetics and physiology, and molecular biology and biotechnology. Not for credit in the Biology major and may not be taken for credit by students who have completed BIOL 100 or BIOL 101.
