Courses

Electrical engineering science and technology (Spring)

This course provides an introduction to electricity. Electricity main laws and the fundamental elements of linear DC circuits will be covered. The student will also learn how to analyze electric circuits.

Bio-nano-chip design

Introduction to heterogeneous integration for Nano-Bio-CMOS sensors on Chip. Understanding and designing of active Bio/CMOS interfaces powered by nanostructures.

Analog circuits for biochip

Principles of biosensing: Target/Probe Interactions

Electrochemical biosensing: three-electrode electrochemical cell and its equivalent circuits

Basic CMOS configurations for electrochemical biosensing

Current readers: current-to-voltage and current-to-frequency conversion

Wireless transmission in lossy media: issues on temperature, specific absorption rate (SAR) and


Usability engineering

Human Factors Engineering theory and research methods will be covered through an interdisciplinary focus on human cognition, behavior and physiology (ergonomics) in the design, development and evaluation of product technology. A final applied projects will demonstrate HFE skills.
