Develop new medical technologies and techniques which transform and improve the lives of patients.
Years 1 and 2:
Core concepts in mathematics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, anatomy, physiology and molecular bioscience provide fundamental engineering and biomedical science knowledge. You'll take the majority of these classes alongside other engineers and biomedical scientists. Specialist classes will develop your Biomedical Engineering focus.
You will start to apply your knowledge in specific areas of biomedical engineering (eg biomechanics and biomedical materials). You'll also deepen your understanding of core engineering and biomedical science topics.
You'll focus on an individual research project. A skills class in research methods and professional studies will provide knowledge of research design and statistical analysis. It will also provide insight into the role and environment of the biomedical engineer and an understanding of ethical, safety and quality management issues.
A group project is a major element of this year. Teamwork, creative collaboration, communication and effective management are all developed. Advanced study in specialist areas such as medical device design, tissue engineering and robotic orthopaedic surgery will further develop and broaden your knowledge.
