A study of the basic and advanced concepts in the systematic design of experiments and the statistical methods for analyzing them. Bioengineering experiments such as single factor, factorial, fractional factorial, and Taguchi designs are explored. Statistical procedures are utilized to study data from clinical trials, bioengineering research and biomedical device design and manufacturing processes.

A fundamental understanding of medical instrumentation together with measurements in the growing fields of molecular biology, cellular biology, and tissue engineering. This course introduces students to measurements, covers the necessary electronics, and then clinical chemistry measurements, cell counting and characterization, measurements on the nervous system, heart and circulation, lung function, kidney function and medical imaging.

Structure and properties of functionally advanced and intelligent fibrous structures and polymeric fiber reinforced composites for biomedical applications. Also studied are polymeric material systems for coating, adhesives and polymeric matrices, and fibrous scaffold structures including nanofiber webs, and reinforcing performs for composites such as knitted or woven fabrics, 3-D fabrics, nonwovens, braided and knotted structures. Properties of the resulting structures and their application areas such as nanobiocomposites, biomedical fibrous composites, and other multifunctional products are considered.

Biomedical signal characteristics, properties of physiological systems, and mathematical modeling of signals from biosystems and biomedical instrumentation. Applied mathematical methods for describing and analyzing biomedical signals such as ECG, EEG, EMG, heart sounds, breath sounds, blood pressure, and tomographic images are considered. Computational, modeling and simulation tools (e.g., MatLab and LabView) are introduced for biomedical signal processing and systems analysis. A group computer project in bioengineering design will be assigned to enhance the proficiency in using the modeling and simulation tools.
