3D printing is a rapidly growing field, with applications to many different disciplines. This DeCal explores the application of 3D printing in the area of medicine, focusing on bioprinting. Bioprinting is the process of creating 3D cellular constructs using 3D printing technology. Through the course, you will be able to understand the theory and practice of 3D printing in tissue engineering through the use of hydrogels and mammalian cell lines. You will then utilize what you have learned to work on other projects of your interest. The course will include 1 hour of lecture per week that will be online.
We accept students from all years and all majors who are interested in the topic at hand. Since bioprinting is an extremely interdisciplinary field, we are looking for students with all technical backgrounds. Experience in biology or engineering is not required-- just a strong interest in learning about bioprinting technology and in solving unique engineering problems! We strongly encourage anyone who is interested to sign-up, as a diverse set of skills and viewpoints are very useful to the class.
Two excused absences (or one unexcused) are allowed throughout the semester, but asynchronous instruction is allowed for students that cannot make the designated class time due to time zone differences or class conflicts. There will not be a final examination, but there will be several homework assignments to help you apply what you’ve learned, as well as a project of your choosing that will allow you to explore your interests within bioprinting.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
