41162 Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering Studio A

6cp; 1 x 3hrs with tutorials if needed.
Requisite(s): 41160 Introduction to Biomedical Engineering

Fields of practice: Biomedical Engineering program



This subject introduces students to the following two areas of biomedical engineering: (i) signal processing from medical and assistive devices and (ii) molecular diagnostic tools and genome technology approaches for the diagnosis of common diseases. This subject runs in a studio mode. Students learn from their involvement in implementing and finding solutions to real-life problems related to unmet medical needs. These solutions may provide a better approach to improving health outcomes for these patients.

This subject includes:

  • processing, anaysing and modelling different physiological signals and components that can be used in various medical and assistive devices;
  • implementation of tools and methods that enable the diagnosis of diseases through analysis of genomic data sets.
