BE 3002 - Biomedical Engineering Design IV

1 lecture hours 2 lab hours 2 credits
Course Description
This course continues the biomedical engineering (BE) design sequence. It continues coverage of specific design concepts and techniques, introducing later stage aspects such as those involved in prototypes and prototype testing and evaluation. Coverage of regulatory concepts continues with specific FDA QSR and design control requirements presented. Specific technical content includes electronic noise and interference as well as electrical, mechanical and radiation safety topics. (prereq: BE 3001 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Execute and evaluate system level design
  • Develop protocols for system and component level design evaluation
  • Describe and apply FDA QSR requirements, particular those related to medical device design and design control
  • Plan for and deal with electrical noise in their designs
  • Refine their project schedules and planning
  • Evaluate and mitigate electrical, mechanical and radiation hazards both in the design process and in their final designs
