Course Overview

The Biomedical Signal Processing certification course will give a complete overview of the program at an initial phase. The candidate will study the different approaches of electrical engineering in relation to biomedical fields that will be equally taken in a theoretical and practical manner. The course will be divided into smaller modules that will make the student more engaged with the ongoing innovations happening in the field of the biomedical signal processing sector. 

The Biomedical Signal Processing certification that will be provided by the government in the last of the completing the course will help the candidates to study the same respective field and course in a further progressive manner that will enhance the candidate’s compatibility in terms of understanding and grasping the significant sectors of the field in a better way. The Biomedical Signal Processing training will be turned with a practical and evidence-based study that will make the learning of the course more interesting and engaging to tackle by the enrolled students. 

The core value of the program is entirely based on the elementary education in the field of engineering that will be further pursued in this respective program.

Eligibility Criteria

Work experience 

In order to apply for Biomedical Signal Processing by Swayam, there is no such prerequisite in terms of the post-work experience that a student needs to acquire in any respective field. 


The Biomedical Signal Processing certification course is entirely based on the basic background knowledge about signals and systems and familiarity with basic functions and definitions of probability. So, the enrolling candidate needs to have certain skills and knowledge in respective areas along with that candidate to obtain the computer skills in the form of familiarity with MATLAB that will be used throughout the program learning. 

Certification qualifying details 

In accordance with getting eligible for Biomedical Signal Processing certification, the applicant must apply for the final term paper to be held in presence by the government and need to obtain 75% as an aggregate mark in it and along with that he or she needs to submit all the internal assignments as scheduled and should obtain 25% marks in it because it is the only requirement that the candidate has to fulfill in order to gain certification in the last phase of the course.
