Years 1 and 2:
The first two years concentrate on fundamental engineering and biomedical science knowledge covering core concepts in mathematics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, anatomy, physiology and molecular bioscience. For the majority of these classes you will be mixing with and integrating with other engineers and biomedical scientists, whilst specialist classes will develop a Biomedical Engineering identity.
In the third year of the course, students start to apply their knowledge in specific areas of biomedical engineering (e.g. biomechanics and biomedical materials), as well as deepening their knowledge of core engineering and biomedical science topics.
Year 4 focuses towards an individual research project, and allied to this project will be a generic skills class in research methods and professional studies; providing knowledge of research design and statistical analysis, discussion of the role and environment of the biomedical engineer, ethical, safety and quality management issues.
