What you will learn

a good understanding of Biomaterials


Welcome to the Biomaterials course, brought to you by Rahsoft. In this course we will be going over the basics and fundamentals of biomaterials, as well as in-depth examples and practice problems to give you a better understanding of the field. The course is taught by Dennis Fer, a Biomedical Engineering Instructor at Rahsoft, and the course advisor is Ahsan Ghoncheh, the Co-Founder and Technical Advisor at Rahsoft.

We will be presenting this information to you in a way that is simple and easy to understand! Our course is aimed for engineers, science students, and others who are interested in learning more about biomaterials, and how different structures, materials, and objects interact with the body in order to create medical devices. Throughout the course, you will be given examples, practice problems and quizzes in order to not only allow you expand your knowledge on the material covered, but also to test what you learned in a way that is stress-free and effective!

The course will begin with some basics in biomaterials, followed by more in-depth technical aspects on how biomaterials work, the forces and systems involved, and interactions with the environment. We will then present examples and more technical systems in the four main types of biomaterial structures: metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites. Lastly, we will go in-depth on biomaterial applications, and how they benefit various parts of our physiological systems.

I want to thank you for choosing Rahsoft to teach you over this subject, and we will do everything we can to meet your needs and go further beyond. We are excited to help teach you more about the field of Biomaterials, and help you learn more and achieve your goals. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to help! Hope to see you soon, when you decide to take the course.
