BEE 4500 - Bioinstrumentation

Spring. 3-4 credits, variable. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 2940 , introductory computing, two semesters of physics, statistics, or permission of instructor. Satisfies both BE laboratory experience if taken for 3 credits and BE capstone design requirement if taken for 4 credits.


Bioinstrumentation applications are emphasized in this laboratory-based course. Electronic instruments from sensor to computer are considered. Static and dynamic characteristics of components and systems are examined theoretically and empirically. General analog and digital signal condition circuits are designed, constructed, and tested. A variety of biological applications of instrumentation are discussed.  Without capstone design 3 credits; with capstone design 4 credits.  Priority given to students taking capstone design.

Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

Outcome 2: An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

Outcome 3: An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.

Outcome 4: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.

Outcome 5: An ability to communicate effectively.
