Quantitative analysis of dynamic and feedback control systems, including modeling of physiological systems and physiological control systems, system time and frequency responses, control characteristics, and stability analysis. Design techniques for feedback systems in biomedical applications.

BME students have been taking the classical Control Theory course from the ECE department. The new BME curriculum has a set of junior level courses designed to prepare BME students for the courses in their interest areas. Biocontrols course with applications of control theory to biomedical systems will prepare the students for the courses in Rehabilitation Engineering research area.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of EngineeringMichael J. EscutiBME department is offering a Biocontrols course to prepare the the students for the rehabilitation engineering area. BME students were taking ECE 308 previously. This new course will better serve for the needs of the BME students.
No new resources are required.

Students will apply control theory in biomedical applications such as human movement control, cardiac control, blood glucose control, neural-machine interface, etc


Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Define systems and signals

  2. Model physical  and physiological systems using Laplace Transforms

  3. Represent control systems using mathematical models

  4. Calculate the response of control systems in the time domain

  5. Analyze and characterize control systems

  6. Design control systems using Root locus analysis

  7. Design control systems using frequency response

  8. Apply control theory to biomedical control systems
