  • Module name: Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Department: School of Engineering
  • Credit: 15

Module content and teaching

Principal aims

To introduce students to the principles of signal processing techniques when applied specifically to biomedical signals, including: ECG, MEG, EEG, SPO2, heart rate etc.

The module will provide the student with a firm grounding in methods and tools for extracting information from digitally acquired biomedical signals.

The module will introduce the practical implementation of signal processing techniques to digitally acquired biomedical signals.

Principal learning outcomes

At the end of the module, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a systematic knowledge of the complex physical and physiological principles that underpin biomedical signals.
  • Demonstrate an advanced understanding of the principles of digital signal processing.
  • Systematically apply methods to extract relevant information from biomedical signal measurements.
  • Critically assess the appropriateness of biomedical signal processing techniques for various problems in the field.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of techniques applied to biomedical signals against specific benchmarks.
