Course Objectives The objective of this course is to introduce the general concept of biomedical engineering and provide information about the history of biomedical engineering. The course will first cover the role and importance of engineering and basic life sciences in biomedical engineering; then the relationship of biomedical engineering with human anatomy and physiology and the basic working areas of biomedical engineering.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • explain medical and biomedical engineering terminology
  • define specify biomedical engineering problems related with electrical engineering and basic engineering
  • model biomedical systems
  • define biomechanical properties of the human body
  • describe the biomedical instrumentation and sensors
  • interpret the issues related with bioimaging and signal processing
  • explain biomolecular engineering problems, such as tissue engineering
Course Content The course covers biomolecular and cellular principles, physiological principles, biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, bioimaging and signal processing, biotechnology, engineering of immunity, biomaterials.
