Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic mathematics and physics. Anatomy and physiology.

Intended learning outcomes

The course aim is to introduce the interdisciplinary field of biomedical engineering. The student should be able to identify and explain aspects of technology in diagnostics and therapeutics. After passing the course the student should be able to:

  • Apply and use a language appropriate for the biomedical engineering area.
  • Explain and illustrate how important functions of the human body are studied using principles of engineering and quantitative methods.
  • Record biomedical signal data and identify the underlying processes.
  • Apply biomedical engineering knowledge on physiological problems and questions.
  • Describe the use of medical data and the principles of medical decision-making.

 

Course content

The course is subdivided into the following themes:
Theme 1: Introduction: terminology, life and death, health care process.
Theme 2: Biopotentials: measurements of ECG, EMG and EEG.
Theme 3: Biofluids and respiration: circulation, respiration, metabolism.
Theme 4: Medical images: radiation physics, CT, MRI, ultrasound.
Theme 5: Medical data: the medical data record, telemedicine.
Theme 6: Biomaterials, biomechanics
Theme 7: Rehabilitation engineering

Teaching and working methods

The course comprises lectures/demonstrations and seminars (42 h) and laboratory work (8 h).
