Where will you be in five years?

That’s a hard question to answer, especially for high school students. UConn’s Pre-College Summer can help students figure it out. Offered during Sessions 1,our Biomedical Engineering course offers students engaging, hands-on exposure to complex biomedical engineering concepts using familiar everyday examples. The course is an exceptional opportunity to learn the basic components of a biomeasurement system and focuses on how to acquire and analyze biological signals.

Biomeasurement systems are found all across the medical field. They are used in acquiring biosignals such as the electrocardiogram (heart), electromyogram (muscles), blood pressure and flow, temperature, etc. By analyzing these signals, healthcare professionals can make inferences about the overall health and well-being of an individual. We also use biomeasurements to diagnose illnesses and diseases and to identify a treatment.

Biosignals can be exploited to control devices that interface with the body, such as prosthetics. They can even be used to develop the remote control of assistive devices, like wheelchairs, using body movements or gestures. By the end of the course, students will be able to develop their own basic biosystems for acquiring data and controlling devices, such as, switching lights on and off using eye movements or by flexing a muscle.
