Description:
This lab offers the
opportunity to explore and experience the rigors of an experimental physical
science. Students make and record observations on simple chemical systems while
learning fundamental laboratory manipulative and measurement skills.
Experiments demonstrate and supplement concepts introduced in lecture. The
first semester emphasizes weighing, filtering, titrating, using volumetric
glassware, observing data, and recording and synthetic techniques. The second

Course Description: This course
presents an overview of different methods used in biomedical signal processing.
Signals with bioelectric origin are given special attention and their
properties and clinical significance are reviewed. In many cases, the methods
used for processing and analyzing biomedical signals are derived from a
modeling perspective based on statistical signal descriptions. The purpose of
the signal processing methods ranges from reduction of noise and artifacts to
extraction of clinically significant features. The course gives each
participant the opportunity to study the performance of a method on real
biomedical signals.

Description:
The course considers the
fundamentals of the analysis of linear electric circuits. The properties of the components that
make up electrical circuits, including resistors, capacitors, inductors,
voltage sources, and current sources are presented. Both independent and dependent sources are considered. The Kirchhoff current and voltage laws
are applied to electrical networks to determine voltages and currents at all
points in the network. Thevenin
and Norton equivalent circuits are also introduced. Circuit behavior is analyzed for DC and transient
excitation. First and second order
differential equations with constant coefficients are applied to the transient
case to achieve the solution. AC
analysis is then introduced using the concept of ÒPhasorsÓ.

Description:
This course analyzes
continuous signals and systems utilizing frequency domain techniques which
include the Fourier series, Fourier Transform and Laplace transforms. Included are the important properties
and identities of these of these techniques which include convolution, impulse
response, transfer function and others.
The student will gain insight into the duality between the time and
frequency domains and techniques for modeling Linear Time Invariant (LTI)
systems.
Since no real system is
noise free, the course will discuss the various types and sources of noise, as
well as the impact of noise on LTI systems.
Sampling theory will be
discussed as a bridge to discrete time systems. Discrete time systems will be studied with the ztransform

Course Description:
This course
covers the architecture of microcontrollers, including how they are constructed
internally and how they interface with external circuitry. Applications for microcontrollers in
both complex and simple equipment are discussed. Students learn how to apply
and how to select a microcontroller for a given application. An accompanying
laboratory course covers the programming of microprocessors to do a specific
task. This course covers the programming and application of the
microcontroller. These tools are used to develop software code for practical
applications such as motor speed control and voltage regulation for power
supplies.
This
laboratory covers the basic operation and applications of a microcontroller.
Students learn to program a microcontroller to control applications such as
motor speed by the use of an emulator connected to a PC. They design a circuit
using a microcontroller for a specific application and write a program to
control the circuit. On completion of the program, they use the emulator to
program an actual microcontroller for use in their circuit.

Description:
This lab course provides
students whit a greater understanding of electromagnetic phenomena, wave
phenomena, and optics, and support PS16. Measurement of microscopic quantities
like the charge and mass of the electron, give students an opportunity to
explore the structure of matter. Other experiments involve the physic of
electrical currents, electric property of bulk matter, electromagnet fields and
their effect on beams, wave phenomena, and the nature of light and its
interaction with optical materials. This course rain students in experimental
measurements, data manipulation and analysis, error analysis, deductive
thinking, and instrumentation. Students complete a weekly lab report.
