BEST Course 2018

Measure your power: understand the electricity of your body

When you hear about Brussels you might think of waffles, fries, a famous child peeing and of course, BEER! Then you are right, but the best of all is that we can’t wait to share all these things of our culture and many more with you!

And what about ECG, EEG, EMG? Those weird terms? Come and find out what they mean during our Summer Course “Measure your power: Understand the Electricity of your Body”! This is a course in Biomedical engineering: electro-physiological signals (modelling, measuring and data processing).

If you are already familiarized with such techniques, Brussels can be an awesome opportunity for you, where you will be able to get an insight into some of the procedures doctors and researchers follow to maintain our body balance, always from the technical and engineering point of view.

Would you like to measure the electrical activity of your heart and see your own cardiac waves? Are you interested in sharing your best moves with a lot more students from all over Europe? Will you join us in this amazing experience?
