Technologies for ameliorating neural disorders ranging from epilepsy and stroke to paralysis are developing rapidly. Understanding and deploying these technologies will require specialized skills in neurophysiology, bioelectricity, and neural-electronic interfaces. The Graduate Certificate in Neural Engineering will prepare clinical, industrial, and academic practitioners with those skills. Students who complete this program will be well-positioned to participate in the rapidly growing fields of neural prosthetics and neural engineering as a professional.
Certificate graduates will:
- Have facile knowledge in the areas of physiology and anatomy underlying neurotechnologies.
- Be able to understand and apply the physical principles crucial to neurotechnologies.
- Know the key technologies currently being used in neural interfaces.
- See trends in technology development in neural interface engineering.
