Course Description: Testing, imaging, and data collection are essential tools medical specialists use to treat patients, and the primary contribution of engineers to healthcare. This course examines biomedical electronics using both theory and hands-on approaches. It covers the physiology behind the physiological signals, the electronics needed to collect the biosignals, and analysis techniques for processing and interpreting the data. Invasive (swallowable/implantable), on-body (wearable), and contactless systems for data collection are covered. In addition, we look at safety issues, ethics and regulatory hurdles from both an industry and research perspective. In the hands-on labs, students will follow the steps of creating a startup or conducting new research and assemble a microcontroller-based sensor system for collecting body signals. This is a fast-paced introduction to the cutting-edge field of biomedical electronics. If you are interested in using engineering for healthcare or biomedical research, this is a great course for you.
