A model for a 16-week biomedical instrumentation course is outlined. The course is modeled in such a way that students learn about medical devices and instrumentation through lecture and laboratory sessions while also learning basic design principles. Course material covers a broad range of topics from fundamentals of sensors and instrumentation, guided laboratory design experiments, design projects, and eventual protection of intellectual property, regulatory considerations, and entry into the commercial market. Students eventually complete two design projects in the form of a `Challenge' design project as well as an `Honors' design project. Sample problems students solve during the Challenge project and examples of past Honors projects from the course are highlighted.
