Course Outlines

Course outlines are provided here for your information and reference as they become available and have received the required approvals.

Available BCIT course outlines can be accessed by selecting the term, the course subject and the course number from the dropdown list(s) below. If outlines are available for your selected term and course, they will then be listed. If any of these steps don’t result in what you are looking for, it indicates that no outline is currently available. If you are looking for an outline from a current term please check back closer to the start of the course or consult another outline from a previous term.  Please keep in mind that the content from previous outlines may be different than current offerings of the course. For historical outlines not covered in this system please contact BCIT Library at 604-432-8370 to see if they have the outline you require.

The course outline is a statement of educational intent and direction, providing BCIT students with clear, concise, accurate and readily available information related to course content and administration. BCIT course outlines are governed by Policy 5403 and the creation of course outlines is subject to the procedure described in 5403-PR1.

While no outlines currently exist for this course, below are the course learning outcomes/competencies.

Course Learning Outcomes/Competencies

  • Explain the electrical entities voltage, current, charge, resistance, capacitance, and inductance in terms of analogies and to define the relationships between these electrical entities.
  • Use test equipment, including the multimeter and oscilloscope, to measure voltage, current and resistance as appropriate.
  • Explain the relationship between time-varying signals and their frequency domain representation.
  • Describe the fundamentals of myoelectric prosthetic control, including:
    • Single-muscle and multi-state control systems
    • Electrodes and the transduction of the myoelectric signal
    • Signal processing of the myoelectric signal
    • Myoelectric roportional control.
  • To analyse and trouble-shoot the fundamental components of myoelectric prosthesis, including:
    • Threshold circuits and state control systems
    • Problems associated with myoelectric prostheses including noise, muscle co-contraction and transducer cross-talk, muscle fatigue, and amputee training.
    • Myoelectric prosthetic components: transducers, battery packs, amplifiers, control circuits, bridge circuits, motors, etc.

Effective as of Fall 2003
