Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to
   assess requirements on biomedical devices,
  quantify safety issues,
  constitute capacitive and inductive interferences and the respective counter measures,
  discuss electrode effects,
  design specific diagnostic devices,
  explain specific therapeutic devices, and
  formulate basics of microelectronic elements as components of biomedical devices.
