Lim's Undergraduate Courses Description
Biosystems Engineering Experimentation
This course deals with basic chemical and biological experiments, which is necessary for biosystem engineers. The objectives are observation of the structure of biological cell, tissue, understanding of basic chemical experiments, and measurement of biological reaction and microorganism growth. The detailed contents include preparation of buffer solution, chemical titration, analysis of organic compounds such as carbohydrate, protein, and lipid, microscopic observation of plant/animal cell, tissue and microorganism, bioprinting, and cutting-edge technologies
This course deals with the systematic approaches to micro-nano fabrication and we will examine the basic rules, instructions and fundamental principles by succeeding various examples. Various applications including information technology (IT) and bio technology (BT) require miniaturization of device size throughout micro- and nano-scale manufacturing technologies. This course surveys various techniques such as photolithography, material removal, thin-film deposition, and planarization process to fabricate micro- and nano-scale structures with an emphasis on their fundamental principles as well as a realistic microfabrication process design.
Biomechatronics is a convergence study with various fields such as mechatronics, nano, and bioengineering through mechanical convergence studies based on dynamics. Classes are conducted through lectures and practical training, and the contents are divided into biotechnological and mechatronics related fields. Biotechnology related fields include biomechanics, biomaterials, biosensors, and bioelectrical electronics, while mechatronics fields include biosystems, computer vision technology / system development, and robotics. This course was designed to help you study the biomechatronics major based on advanced mechanical engineering fields such as advanced bio devices, intelligent robots, nano bio chips, and manufacturing
In this course, students will study the characteristics and categories of bio-robots, principles of coordinates, manipulator motion, actuator, end-effector, sensors, and interface with personal computers. Applications to fruit harvests, livestock management, food processing, animal farm management, and microscopic tissue culture engineering will be emphasized. Intelligent bio-robots where artificial intelligent techniques are applied will be discussed for future bio-robots handling biological products and materials
Lim's Graduate Courses Description
A seminar explores some of the fundamental paradigms and developments in your ongoing research works. We will thus discuss what you are in progress since entering into and joining to some their projects. Attendance at each seminar is mandatory for all students enrolled. In addition, students are expected to attend all other seminars in the department, such as invited guest speakers and so on. You should strive for professionalism in all aspects of this class. Each student will give only one 30-minute presentations. Class members (and I) will take notes on various aspects of your seminar and give you immediate feedback and constructive criticism. Your seminar should cover several (3-4, or more) related papers in a given area. You should strive to organize your seminar into a cohesive presentation, and be selective about what you present. Be prepared to answer questions after your seminar.
Theory and applications of engineering mechanics to areas of biomechanics: Cell and tissue mechanics; Stress-strain of hard and soft tissues; Modeling fluid flow. The purpose of this course is to introduce guys to concepts of engineering analysis as applying to biological systems from cellular to whole organism level. Thus, you should have understanding of cellular mechanics theories and applications, viscoelastic models, tissue level mechanics, fundamentals of dynammics and kinematics as well as bio-solids with application to tissue structures like bones. Plus, you will test understanding of biosolids and fracture mechanics with and emphasis on applied working, fluids behavior including viscoelasticity, blood flow models, Bernoulli's equation and application, poroelasticity and multicomponent flow.
Importantly, this course is not only food science and technology but food engineering and its mechanics. Please make it sure to remind your brainstorming at to what's uniquely different at each aspect. Based on in detail most of mechancis: fluild, heat transfer, materials, and so forth, you would be covered into engineering food process and technology. Learn principles of food engineering and apply these applications by solving food processing problems using calculations
Mechanics of Materials
The aim of this course is to shape up students to the concepts of statics and mechanics of materials, which is required for biosystems engineers in the process of plan, analysis, design, innovative development of biosystems engineering fields. In the part of statics, force and moment concepts, vector operations, and equilibrium of bodies will be described. In the part of mechanics of materials, stress and strain, properties of materials connected to tension and compression, axially loaded/torsional members, shear stress and bending moment will be introduced. You will have an ability to formulate and solve the problem of mechanics for the analysis and design of structures.
