10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  The course aims to provide students with an introduction to the basic concepts of biomedical engineering, including biomechanics, biomaterials, and biotechnology. The students will gain an understanding of the structure and function of cells and tissues and the generation of electrical signals in cells. The students will be introduced to biomedical imaging and sensors (X-ray, computer tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, nuclear radiation images). The students will be competent to acquire and process biomedical images with different techniques and algorithms. The students will be acquainted with worldwide and local standards on the matter.

11.    Course Syllabus: Introduction to biomedical engineering, review of human anatomy and physiology. Biomechanics. Material mechanics. Biomaterials, characteristics, types and application. Tissue engineering. Analysis of bioelectric phenomena. Modelling and simulation of physiological systems. Detection, measurement and processing of biomedical signals. Biomedical sensors. Biomedical images, devices for aquisition. Methods for processing biomedical images. X-ray, computer tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, nuclear radiation images. Application of algorithms for processing biomedical images. Biotechnology. Responses of human biological functions to bioengineering applications. Application of engineering principles for analyses, modification and controlling biological systems. Ethics. Standards and regulative (worldwide and local).

12.    Learning methods:  Active participation in class, home and laboratory assignments and projects.

20.  Forms of assessment During the semester there are two written partial exams (at the middle and at the end of semester, with duration of 120 minutes). The student can participate in optional team project assignment that should be finished until the end of semester. The final grade is formed as a sum of the results from the partial exams, the laboratory excersises and the project assignments.
In the exam sessions there is written exam (duration 120 minutes). The final grade is formed as a sum of the results from the written exam, the laboratory excersises and the project assignments.
During the exam it is not allowed to use literature or notes, neither calculators, mobile phones or other electronic devices
