ENGR 3412: Biomedical Circuit Applications


  • Biomedical engineering minor
  • EE Technical Elective 

3 credit hours (3-0-3)
Prerequisite: Engineering Standing

This course will provide an overview of instrumentation systems used in clinical medicine and biomedical research. Some circuit theory and its application to bioinstrumentation will be reviewed. Systems for measuring biologic signals, such as biopotentials, stress and strain, pressure, temperature, and optical properties, will be discussed. Electrical hazards, safety, measuring instruments and techniques will also be discussed. There will be applications to engineering design such as transducer systems and sensing and driving circuits. There will also be discussion of ethical and regulatory issues related to bioinstrumentation as well as review of instrumentation such as CT Scan, MRI, EKG, and EEG sensors.
