Neural Engineering - Signals Undergraduate Certificate
Gain a fundamental and applied understanding of brain signals—a growing component of neural big-data research—with a Certificate in Neural Engineering – Signals. This innovative program is offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Mizzou Engineering.
What is it?
The undergraduate Certificate in Neural Engineering – Systems is a 12 credit-hour stand-alone certificate. It consists of 6 required credit hours and 6 hours of support courses.
Why pursue it?
Understanding the brain is one of the top challenges for research of our time. Students pursuing this certificate will study fundamental concepts around brain waves and will gain expertise in the usage of signal processing concepts in applications such as detecting the onset of epilepsy and designing brain machine interfaces. The certificate is a good choice for current students—whether at Mizzou or another institution—who are seeking graduate school opportunities in neuroscience and neural engineering. Individuals seeking entry-level career opportunities in biomedical technologies—such as Elon Musk’s company Neuralink—would also benefit from this certificate.
