Signals and Systems Track

The Signal and Systems track, administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, educates biotechnology engineers in:

  • analysis and processing of signals with an emphasis on biomedical image processing and image formation
  • design, control and synthesis of systems for biotechnology (e.g., development of miniaturized devices, circuits and systems, or controller design for bioreactors).
