BME 201 has the formal title “Biomedical Engineering Practice.” It’s a rather broad title, that could mean a lot of different things.

Instead it’s a …

I …

I know it has been awhile, but I am finally back to school. Winter break was very interesting and relaxing. I say interesting because it was so much different than the first one last year. Last year it entailed a lot of hanging with friends, but every night encompassed searching for parties and trying to revert back to high school …

Midterm Survival Guide

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Midterm season has descended upon USC. Depending on your schedule, your midterms can be spread out over the course of three weeks or, as in my case this semester, one.

EE 150: Matlab, Coding, Compiling Oh My!

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

In the life and times of a biomedical engineer, you take classes that cover multiple disciplines. Chem and bio are obvious staples of biomedical engineering, physics as well. Less well known, though is that as a biomedical engineer it’s a standard to learn a programming language called Matlab. It’s not as complicated as Java or C sharp or C++, but …
