For more information about these courses, see the Schulich School of Engineering.

Engineering Foundations 111       Bioengineering Foundations
Students will gain an understanding of foundational concepts in mechanics, optics, electromagnetism, and atomic physics and their applications in the field of bioengineering. Through interactive experiments, students will actively explore and solve associated problems related to living systems. This course will integrate Indigenous perspectives in problem solving and includes contextual examples that build upon real-world examples and applications.
Course Hours:
3 units; (3-3/2)
Prerequisite(s):
Admission to the Schulich School of Engineering Indigenous Pathways Program or permission from the faculty.
Notes:
Completion of this course meets the University of Calgary’s Physics 30 requirement.
