Learners enrolled: 228
This course is a system design-oriented course aimed to provide exposure to mathematical analysis and its importance in the translational biomedical systems. Biomedical electronics and subsequent mathematical analysis are popular research areas, and this course is an introduction to both. The emphasis is on biostatistical aspects with an introduction to standard Biological system design and experimental protocols. Expected course outcomes:

• Introduction to Biomedical optics
• Multimodal Approaches for Tissue phenotyping
• Mathematical Modelling of Biomedical System Design
• Acquisition, Preprocessing and Analysis of Biological Signals
• Demonstration of EEGLab and ERPLab for EEG and ERP signal processing

Course certificate

The course is free to enroll and learn from. But if you want a certificate, you have to register and write the proctored exam conducted by us in person at any of the designated exam centres.
The exam is optional for a fee of Rs 1000/- (Rupees one thousand only).
Date and Time of Exams: 23 October 2021 Morning session 9am to 12 noon; Afternoon Session 2pm to 5pm.
Registration url: Announcements will be made when the registration form is open for registrations.
The online registration form has to be filled and the certification exam fee needs to be paid. More details will be made available when the exam registration form is published. If there are any changes, it will be mentioned then.
Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.


Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 8 assignments out of the total 12 assignments given in the course.
Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100

Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score

YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.

Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IISc Bangalore.It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.

Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our online courses and certification. Happy learning.
