This lecture is written for a student or researcher or engineer ..
Theory and application of optical instrumentation, including light sources, lasers, detectors, and optical fibers; instrumentation and engineering in biomedical applications of optics in therapeutics, diagnostics, and biosensing.
Prerequisites: Admitted into the major degree sequence in biomedical engineering; junior or senior classification.
Bioinstrumentation Synthesis Lectures on ..
Graduate bioengineering degrees are concentrated in one of the areas of specialization available within the department: Bioinstrumentation, Biomaterial/Tissue Engineering, Biomechanics/Orthopedics, Medical Imaging, or Protein Engineering (Doctor of Philosophy only)The Department of Bioengineering has active student chapters associated with the Biomedical Engineer Student Society (BMESS).
Prerequisites: Grade of C or higher in and . Course lectures and laboratories will address important issues for biomedical engineers at the introductory level; covering the origins of bio-electric signals and the instrumentation involved in collection of biopotentials from the electrodes to processing of the signals on the computer. Some other topics included are the transducers/sensors and modern engineering software used in bio-instrumentation. Laboratory work will provide hands-on experience in all of these areas. The course will also address practical issues in design of medical devices such as noise, resolution, linearity, and saturation. This course is offered in Studio format that involves the integration of lectures and labs into one highly participatory structure.
