The course introduces the students to experimental studies in a wide range of subjects. Each experiment is self contained and the student will present the findings in written form through a lab report which will have a set of experiment specific questions to answer. This written report also forms the basis for the assessment. All students work in groups and carry out five experiments which vary according to discipline, however the assignments are all individually submitted. The students keep a log-book of the experimental observations and results, which is used for reference for the technical report from each experiment written-up in the week after the experiment.
The course provides a practical foundation for the use of numerical methods to solve biomedical engineering problems. It will review MATLAB programming techniques and apply these techniques to a range of biomedical engineering problems. By the end of the course students should 1) feel comfortable in a programming environment 2) be able to translate numerical formulations into a program, 3) solve biomedical engineering problems computationally.
This module looks at the design and operation of a wide range of instrumentation used to make measurements for diagnostic and monitoring purposes. The emphasis is on the underlying electrical, mechanical, chemical, optical and other engineering principles.
