BME 3201A - Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering Design

The objective of this course is to develop design skills and tools used in Biomedical Engineering. Integration of the engineering and life sciences will be illustrated by presenting design principles for medical devices and systems. Emphasis will be placed on engineering design for the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. Antirequisite: MME 4470A/B.  Course outline

BME 3301A - Neural Systems Engineering

Engineering principles relevant to the study of neurophysiology, neural modelling, and the design of neural systems for diagnostic, interventional, and rehabilitation applications. Course topics will include EEG and EMG systems, functional MRI and other neural imaging technologies, brain-computer interfaces, and neural prosthetics. Prerequisite: BME 3201A/B. Corequisites: ECE 4455A/B, Physiology 2130.  Course outline

BME 4400 - Biomedical Engineering Research Project

A major independent research project in biomedical engineering performed in collaboration with a faculty supervisor. Lectures and online modules on laboratory safety, human and animal research ethics, scientific integrity, experimental design, medical statistics, literature searching tools, and scientific communication. Two oral presentations and a written report are required. Prerequisite: Registration in the final year of a Biomedical Engineering program. Course Outline  

MEDBIO 3330F - Human Biomechanics with Biomedical Applications

The course tackles the mechanical properties of biological structures and fluids in relation to
function: deformability, strength, and viscoelasticity of hard and soft tissues, modes of loading
and failure. Special topics include mechanics of synovial joints, finite element methods,
mechanics of hearing, and mechanics of orthopedic implants and joint replacement. Course Outline
