BME 200 Intro to Biomedical Engineering - Fall 2018
Lectures: 9:30–10:45 TR, Brevard Hall Room 122
Office: Glenn Walker, Brevard Hall Room 333, firstname.lastname@example.org
Office hours: Drop in or check my calendar and email me for an appointment.
Teaching Assistant: Jomiloju “JJ” Adebolu email@example.com
Required Text: Biomedical Engineering (2nd Edition), W. Mark Saltzman, Cambridge University Press 2015.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Choose an emphasis area within the biomedical engineering curriculum
- Perform simple statistical analyses
- Use MATLAB to solve biomedical engineering problems
- Use MATLAB to analyze and plot biomedical data
- Perform engineering analyses of biomedical systems
- Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the respiratory, cardiovascular, and urinary system
If you have questions during reading, solving homework problems, writing up reports, studying for exams, etc., send me an email with the question. I will respond to all students, “A student asked the following question…” so you will not be identified. Office visits are also welcome.
Homework is due at the beginning of class on the due date.
Homework is assigned to help you practice applying the principles you learn in class. If you are late to class, so is the homework. Late homework will receive a maximum grade of 50%. After 24 hours, late HW will receive a grade of 0%. HW turned in by a friend will be considered late.
In-class work and quizzes
I will occasionally give a short (10 min) pop-quiz at the beginning of class to test you on the reading assignment or HW assignment. Some in-class work may be graded.
Final Exam: Thursday, Dec 6, 8:00–11:20 AM in Brevard 122.
Bring your own calculator to the exams—cell phones will not be allowed as a substitute. Check your batteries before the exam. Exams missed with certified medical excuses or prior instructor approval will be dealt with individually.
The final course grade comprises:

University of Mississippi Policies
Students are expected to adhere to the guidelines for academic integrity outlined in the University of Mississippi Policy for Academic Conduct and Discipline. Cases of misconduct will be addressed according to the procedures outlined in the Policy. Your signature on any submitted work implies that you have neither given nor received unauthorized aid.
Reasonable accommodations will be made for students with verifiable disabilities. In order to take advantage of available accommodations, students must register with the Office of Student Disability Services at 234 Martindale, 662-915-7128.
Students are expected to attend all classes. Read the Credits and Grades Policy (ACA.AR.200.003) and the Guidelines for Class Attendance Policies (ACA.AR.200.004) for more information. If you anticipate an excused absence on a due date, please notify me so that we can agree on an alternate due date.
