BMEN 1300 - Discover Biomedical Engineering

3 hours (2;3)

The course focuses on describing, explaining and predicting natural phenomena using a combination of two, 50-minute lectures and a 3-hour laboratory, every week. Students will learn about the origin and history of healthcare practices. Students will learn about human anatomy and physiology and thus be able to describe and explain natural phenomena that occur in the human body. They will also learn to describe naturally occurring action potentials in muscles and nerve cells, and predict the resulting bio-potentials such as electrocardiogram (ECG) and electromyogram (EMG), with reference to homeostasis or a disturbance to it. Students will learn about various systems in the body and how their working can be enhanced while improving the quality of life.

Prerequisite(s): None.
