 Designing measurement and instrumentation system for biomedical applications.

IMPORTANT POLICIES (subject to the course instructor)

 Expectations. I expect a class atmosphere of respect for your fellow human beings as we travel this road
together. I also expect a class atmosphere of critical thought and your best efforts. Please come prepared to
 Readings: You are expected to read the assigned materials before the class/period. This helps you grasp the
material more fully and creates a better classroom environment.
 Attendance: Your attendance in class is critical to fulfillment of course objectives. You will not be eligible to
appear in the exam if you cross six absences. Late coming, even for two minutes, would strictly be marked as
 Due dates: No late work will be accepted. Assignments are due at the start of class. Presentations cannot be
made up. This is the real world. When speakers accept speaking assignments, they are obligated to be ready to
speak on that date at that time. If you are not prepared to speak, you receive a zero on that presentation. Talk to
me in advance if there are problems.
 Discussion: Since, discussion is vital to the learning process and I want to hear your input in class. Therefore,
interactive sessions would be used rather than talking from one end and listening at the other.
