Bioelectromagnetism and modelling 732

Module code EBI 732
Qualification Postgraduate
Faculty Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology
Module content

The course provides an introduction to modelling of bioelectromagnetic systems using numerical methods. It focuses on the study of the interaction of electromagnetic fields with biological systems and application of this knowledge in the modelling of biological volume conduction problems. The finite element technique is used to analyse volume conduction problems. Students are introduced to an industry standard finite element software package, ANSYS, that is used to complete the practical component of the course.
