BME 380 Medical Transducers
Introduction to electrochemical transducers with enzyme, antibody, nucleicIntroduction to electrochemical transducers with enzyme, antibody, nucleic acid, or cell bioreceptors. Then we will investigate further into the other types of physical transducers based on temperature, strain, and light. We will then move forward into a group of biosensor topics include a pH sensor.
BME 400 Ethics in Biomedical Engineering
This course introduces the wide spectrum of ethical, regulatory, and legal issues facing health care practitioners and biomedical engineers. Lectures and discussions help students become aware of the ethical and legal issues involved in their work. The course introduces students to the processes involved in making ethical and legal decisions in matters related to human health and biomedical research. Students are also provided with several sources of additional help and guidance for further investigation and analysis.
BME 498A  Primary Graduation Project
Theoretical investigation and problem identification of a special project in Biomedical engineering under the supervision of an academic faculty member, detailed report as well as an oral examination are required.
BME 598A  Secondary Graduation Project
Theoretical investigation and practical implementation of special projects in the fields of Biomedical Engineering will be supervised by an academic member of the faculty. The project is a continuation of BME 498A. Periodic reports and a final report must be submitted for evaluation, an oral examination is required.
BME 500A  Field Training
A training period of six month to be spent in the Biomedical engineering industry, hospitals, companies or research centers (inside or outside Jordan), under the follow up of an academic faculty member from the department, periodic reports and a final report must be submitted for evaluation, an oral examination is required.
BME 357 Medical Electronics Lab
Multistage amplifiers, Power Amplifiers, Differential Amplifiers, Instrumentation Amplifier, Special circuits (V/f converters, f/V converter, Log-Amplifiers, etc), Active Filters: low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-stop filters.
BME 205 Software tools for Biomedical Systems Lab
Introduces state of the art software packages that will be applied to simulate and model problems at the interface of engineering and biology. Apply mathematical techniques on biomedical informatics engineering problems including numerical methods, equation solutions, curve fitting and approximation etc.
A number of different versions of patient record systems exist, they are also referred to by a number of varying terms and acronyms, a common one being Electronic Health Record (HER). They are all basically a way of viewing a patient’s medical record via a computerized interface. An electronic health record (EHR), or electronic medical record (EMR), refers to the systematized collection of patient and population electronically-stored health information in a digital format. These records can be shared across different health care settings. The outcome of this course to let the student learn how to build software using different programs; mainly ORACLE 11g or higher, which is including installation, developing, deploying and packaging.
