Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field that requires a combination of knowledge from both engineering and medical sciences. Therefore, it is important to develop a curriculum that not only focuses on the core concepts of engineering but also includes medical applications and practices. The reform measures should aim to provide students with a deeper understanding of the intersection of medicine and engineering and enhance their practical ability to solve real-world biomedical problems. The teaching content could include topics such as medical imaging, bioelectric signals, biomechanics, and medical instrumentation. Additionally, case studies and practical projects could be incorporated to allow students to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-life situations. In terms of teaching methods, it is important to use a variety of approaches to accommodate diverse learning styles. For instance, interactive lectures, discussions, group projects, laboratory work, and guest lectures from experts in the field could be utilized. The use of modern teaching technologies, such as simulations and virtual reality, could also help to enhance the learning experience. By improving the teaching quality and content of Biomedical Signals and Systems (2) course, students can develop a solid foundation in biomedical engineering and become better prepared to enter the workforce or pursue advanced degrees in the field. Moreover, it will help to cultivate high-quality interdisciplinary talents who can make significant contributions to the advancement of biomedical engineering.
