Electrical Circuits for BHCTM Electrical Circuits for BHCTM provides students with a background in basic electric circuit theory and applications and offers the foundation for other electrical and electronic courses to follow in the program.
During this course, students complete weekly lab experiments that apply the lecture concepts and solve problems involving various circuit components that they may encounter in some health care technologies.
Students are required to write a lab report, which outlines procedures, results and conclusions of the lab experiments done in a clear and concise manner. The course will also use simulation software to analyze the operation of the circuits to reinforce the theory learned.
The structure and function of each body system is studied independently, then the interrelationships of body organ systems, homeostasis, and the complimentary aspects of structure and function.
Course content begins at the cellular level and expands to include, but not limited to, tissue, integumentary, musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory and urinary systems. Microbiology is also introduced in the context of infection and disease.
The course focuses on the principles of a healthy body and examines how the integrity of the body is maintained. Students will develop an appreciation for difficulties encountered when the systems malfunction and how medical treatments may assist in regaining health and wellness.
Introduction to Health Care Technology Management This course introduces students to the principles and concepts of the assessment and management of biomedical engineering technologies. Students explore the breadth and depth of the discipline and the accelerating rate of technological innovation for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of chronic and acute diseases in the modern health care environment.
Students gain an appreciation for the limits of their own evolving knowledge and thus the necessity to collaborate with other professionals to limit the uncertainties in analysis and interpretations.
Learning will be reinforced through the use of spreadsheet and scientific computing software. Critical Thinking and Writing This course introduces students to essential writing skills for business. Types of scholarly and non-scholarly writing will be reviewed.
Grammar, style and standards for different audiences will be explained and reinforced through practice. Methods to construct and critically evaluate arguments will be explained.
Research, organization, revision, layout and copy editing skills will be developed through group and individual assignments. Semester 2 Fundamentals of Digital Electronics Students will learn the principles and applications of digital electronic circuits.
Students receive theoretical and practical training while gaining the foundation for more advanced study.
Topics include number systems, basic logic gates, arithmetic circuits, Boolean algebra, and reduction techniques. Students have ample opportunity to put their training into practise, working on arithmetic circuits, data circuits, and sequential circuits, in digital computing and control.
Advanced topics include analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue circuits, TTL and CMOS family characteristics, and interfacing various family of devices, computer memory types and characteristics, and the use of microcontrollers in health care management Physics for Biomedical Technology This course offers an introduction to physical principles underlying biological, chemical and life sciences, with an emphasis on biomedical technology applications.
The concepts of dynamics, kinematics, forces and Newton's three laws of motion, work and energy, impulse and momentum, rotation, elasticity, light waves, and sound, as well as fundamental concepts in thermodynamics and biomechanics will be covered. Biomedical Nomenclature and Devices I This course brings an engineering systems approach to the health care environment.
The course introduces the basic terminologies, principles and clinical applications of specialized biomedical equipment, including multi-parameter simulators and analysers, bioelectric signals and sensors such as electrodes and transducers, pressure and flow measurement devices, simulators and their use when testing, validating and calibrating medical devices.
The concepts studied in this course apply to both mechanical-medical devices and electro-medical devices including, but not limited to, physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment, patient monitoring systems, instrumentation in blood circuits, defibrillators, electrocardiography, cardiac output and pulmonary function.
Topics in this course integrate concepts relating to the human anatomy and physiology and the processes for measuring and validating physiological parameters.
The role of a Health Care Technology Manager will be introduced as integral to an allied health care team. This course introduces students to essential economic principles and concepts for health care technology managers.
The course consists of three parts. Part 1 covers microeconomics—supply, demand and market structure. Part 2 covers macroeconomics—inflation; employment; economic growth; and fiscal and monetary policy. Part 3 covers the practice of engineering economics, including return on investment, net present value, time value of money, and real world examples economic calculations.The Effect of Information Technology on Accounting System's Conformity with Business J.

Journal of Business Research, The practice of technology management and the development of technology strategy require an understanding of the different forms of innovation and the features of each form.
Strategic technology partnering between firms has become a growing subject of interest to both companies experimenting with this mode of economic organization and researchers from a wide variety of academic disciplines.
In this study an effort is made to measure the effect of strategic technology partnering on companies engaged in such joint. Decisions are the heart of success and at times there are critical moments when they can be difficult, perplexing and nerve racking.
This side provides useful and practical guidance for making efficient and effective decisions in both public and private life. Information technology (IT) may be defined as computer-based technology for the storage, accessing, processing and communication of information.
Many writers have suggested that the use of IT should improve strategic decisions and have developed a number of propositions about the effects of IT on strategic decision making. The course is designed to provide students with insights into the complex environment that organizations of any size operate.
Organizational leaders’ and organizational members’ responsibility to use ethical thinking to balance stakeholder interests with organizational duty are examined.
