BE 4005 - Biomedical Engineering Design II

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits

Course Description
This course introduces students to a range of important professional biomedical engineering topics. In this course, students complete preliminary stages of design that culminate in a project proposal presentation. In this course, students will transition from feasibility and definition of design input requirements to technical design. Topics covered will include block diagrams, fabrication techniques and system level design, with an emphasis on subsystem interface specifications. The term will culminate in a system-level design review. (prereq: BE 3015 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Deliver a formal presentation proposing a biomedical engineering design project
  • Develop a system-level block diagram for a design solution to address a set of design input requirements for a biomedical engineering design project
  • Characterize interface specifications for a system-level design
  • Identify fabrication techniques commonly used in fabrication of biomedical engineering device prototypes
  • Conduct a hazard analysis for biomedical device design
  • Communicate design approaches and issues in a design review setting
  • Demonstrate familiarity with the IEEE Code of Ethics in the design process
  • Articulate if and how the FDA regulatory process would apply to a given device design
