Learning objectives

Biomedical engineering is pre-eminently a multidisciplinary field. Thermodynamics deals with energy conversion processes and lays the link between mechanics, chemistry, biology and electromagnetisme. The aim of this course is to master the energy frameword coupling those fields.
