Biomedical Signal Processing

The module explains how biomedical signals are represented in digital format, and how they can be digitally processed through mathematical techniques in order to extract useful information for understanding physiological systems and/or diagnosis.

Most modules require a 2.2 degree in a related discipline or equivalent professional experience. Should you have any queries regarding your eligibility, please contact us at

N.B Sufficient mathematics background to be comfortable with integral calculus, probability theory, and basic linear algebra.

On completion of this module, learners should be able to:

• Explain basic principles of how an analog sensor signal can be converted reliably to a digital format for processing

• Translate signal representations between the time and frequency domains

• Design and implement digital filters and use them to remove noise or improve signal detection

• Describe and know how to address the core challenges in biomedical signal analysis, such as the interference of noise and artifacts in the signals

• Perform basic feature extraction and pattern classification for diagnostic applications
