Class description

Bioengineering Laboratory I is a 2-credit course introducing students to important engineering methods for data acquisition, analysis and presentation 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 microscopy.
