ENES 120 - Biology for Engineers


Introduction to the functions and interactions of biological systems from a quantitative perspective. Topics including concepts in molecular and cellular biology, mechanisms of concepts in molecular and cellular biology, mechanisms of thermodynamics, genetics, gene expression and regulation. Introduction to the modern biological experimental techniques, methods of data analysis and biostatistics. An overview of role of bioengineers. Students are strongly recommended to have taken a college-level biology course. PREREQUISITE(S): CHEM 132  or CHEM 135  with grade of C or better, and MATH 181  with a grade C or better. Three hours lecture / one hour discussion each week.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Identify different types of cells, list their parts, and describe their structural components and the differences between them.
  • Identify and describe the functions of different types of bio-molecules.
  • Describe mechanisms underlying the working of molecular biological processes including enzyme catalysis, metabolic pathways, membrane trafficking, gene expression and signal transduction.
  • Quantitatively analyze biological processes including enzyme catalysis, metabolic pathways, gene expression and signal transduction.
  • Use Excel, MATLAB and other computational tools to quantitatively analyze biological processes.
  • Describe selected experimental techniques in contemporary biology and the underlying concepts.
  • Enhance teamwork, communication and peer review skills through assigned projects.
