MFET-797
3 Credits
This course provides the MMSI graduate students an opportunity to complete their degree requirements by addressing a practical real-world challenge using the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their studies. This course is not only the culmination of a student's course work but also an indicator of the student's ability to use diverse knowledge to provide a tangible solution to a problem. The capstone project topic can be in the areas of product development, manufacturing automation, management system, quality management or electronics packaging. The course requires a comprehensive project report and a final presentation.
EEEE-105
1 Credits
EE Practicum provides an introduction to the practice of electrical engineering including understanding laboratory practice, identifying electronic components, operating electronic test and measurement instruments, prototyping electronic circuits, and generating and analyzing waveforms. Laboratory exercises introduce the student to new devices or technologies and an associated application or measurement technique. This hands-on lab course emphasizes experiential learning to introduce the student to electrical engineering design practices and tools used throughout the undergraduate electrical engineering program and their professional career. Laboratory exercises are conducted individually by students using their own breadboard and components in a test and measurement laboratory setting. Measurements and observations from the laboratory exercises are recorded and presented by the student to a lab instructor or teaching assistant. Documented results are uploaded for assessment.

EEEE-531
3 Credits
Biological entities represent one of the most difficult environments in which to obtain or generate accurate and reliable signals. This course will discuss the techniques, mechanisms and methods necessary to transfer accurate and reliable information or signals with a biological target. Various biomedical sensor and transducer types including their characteristics, advantages, disadvantages and signal conditioning will be covered. Discussions will include the challenges associated with providing a reliable and reproducible interface to a biological entity, the nature and characteristics of the associated signals, the types of applicable sensors and transducers and the circuitry necessary to drive them.
