This course introduces students to fundamental principles in the field of biomedical engineering. Students will be exposed to the different sub-disciplines within biomedical engineering and will get industry exposure from guest speakers. Students will build and test a biomedical device for their final project.
Design and application of biomedical instrumentation. Topics include physiological measurements, biomedical measurements, electrodes, sensors, amplifiers, and imaging systems. Electrical safety in medical environments is also covered.
Analysis and lumped physical biomedical systems; stability analysis; complex plane, root locus for electrical, fluid, and mechanical systems; linear system transients, steady-state behavior; introduction to biomedical feedback control.
