Course Descriptions


BMET-112 Electro-Mechanical-Fluidic Devices I
3 Credits

The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to utilize the basic concepts to investigate the physics of and the interrelation between electrical, mechanical, fluidic and optical systems. The student will know the basic components of each system, where in the overall system they occur and what their function is toward the correct operation of the system. Prerequisite: ELEC-107 and PHYS-101. (2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab weekly)

BMET-211 Biomedical Instrumentation I
5 Credits

The student will be able to classify biomedical instruments into areas such as support, laboratory, diagnostic, patient monitoring, therapeutic, x-ray, etc. Biomedical transducers will be introduced and students will make application of the terms of sensitivity, resolution, recordability, readability, linearity and accuracy in order to effect correct usage. Prerequisite: BMET-112, BIOL-106 and ELEC-117. Corequisite: ELEC-213. (4 hours lecture, 3 hours lab weekly)

BMET-212 Biomedical Instrumentation II
5 Credits

In this theoretical-practical course, the student will utilize electronic and mechanical principles for maintenance and repair of biomedical equipment (electro-mechanical, clinical lab, ultrasonics, patient monitoring, x-ray and radiation). Students will be in a simulated clinical setting where they will perform on-site repairs and preventative maintenance. Prerequisite: BMET-211. (4 hours lecture, 3 hours lab weekly)
