The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

BME 411: Tissue Mechanics

Biomedical Engineering

This course will delve into the fundamental principles of continuum mechanics and gradually progress to advanced concepts, all within the context of tissues and their behavior. From understanding the continuum kinematics and material symmetry to formulating constitutive equations and exploring specific tissue types such as bone, cartilage, and ligaments, this course will equip students with a profound knowledge of how biological tissues respond to mechanical forces. Practical applications, including modeling poroelastic and electrical effects in soft tissues, will prepare students for real-world challenges in fields such as medical engineering and biomechanics.
