Introduction to bioengineering; laboratory safety, acquisition and analysis, presentation tools for biomedical applications. Prerequisite: MATH 126; PHYS 121; corequisite: CSE 142; PHYS 122. Offered: W.
Bioengineering Laboratory introduces students to important engineering methods for data acquisition and analysis in bioengineering. This course will focus on measurement tools used in the junior-level BioE courses (301/302/303) such as oscilloscopes, function generators, circuits, etc. and on software used for engineering analysis and data processing (e.g., MatLab). Students will be instructed in the theory of engineering measurements and analysis. They will learn how to acquire data, process and analyze data, and present their results. Topics include: sensors and actuators, circuits, data acquisition, sampling, data and error analysis, and ethics.
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
1 hr lecture and 3 hr lab per week
freshman physics and differential/integral calculus. Some knowledge of electrical circuits also would be useful
Class assignments and grading
weekly laboratory worksheets
lab worksheets, quizzes, lab report, lab parcitipation and final exam
