BMET5996: Biomedical Technology Software

Biomedical technology is advancing at a rapid pace with more and more intelligent devices being developed in both clinical and research contexts. This unit of study invetsigates the design and implementation of embedded software as applied to biomedical technology. Students will learn theoretical and practical skills for the design and implementation of robust software using high level languages and parallel, real-time programming constructs. Topics introduced may include machine architecture, interrupts, sensor interfacing, and communications. The unit will be structured around a group project to design, build, test and demonstrate a software system to control a biomedical device. Examples of projects can include a Ventilator or an Implantable Stimulator.
