Human anatomy and physiology, mechanics of solids, structure of polymers, protein, polysaccharides, metals and non metal elements, atomic bonding.
The purpose of this course is to acquaint each student with the field of material Science and the bio materials that are used in medical devices or in contact with biological systems. The effectiveness of the technology depends on the behaviour of the Bio materials and the Medical devices.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to do:
1. To learn about biomaterials, classifications, their properties, performance specification and biological applications.
2. To judge which material/implant should be used for what kind of application according to nature of diseased and ill area of the body.
3. To decide the testing and selection procedure for specific biomaterial/implant.
4. To develop and design artificial models/materials with the help of software available in market.
5. To compare different materials based on its strength, flexibility, inertness and its response to biological tissues.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
