BE 4015 - Biomedical Engineering Design III

1 lecture hours 2 lab hours 2 credits
Course Description
This course provides continuation of the biomedical engineering design series. In this course, students progress to design at the levels of the subsystem and component. The concept of building and testing to meet predetermined requirements is reinforced, with particular attention toward achieving interface requirements between subsystems. Topics covered include power considerations and electrical noise and interference. The term will culminate in a subsystem-level design review. (prereq: successful completion of BE 4005  in fall term of the same academic year)
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Identify requirements for a subsystem of a biomedical engineering design project
  • Use engineering approaches to design a subsystem to meet requirements
  • Design, execute, and document appropriate tests to characterize subsystem performance
  • Communicate rationale and technical details of a design approach
  • Identify relevant global, societal, cultural, environmental, and economic issues associated with design decisions
  • Apply project management techniques to execute a long-term engineering design project
