Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
This programme is accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Courses that have been accredited and recognised by a professional body are to say it has been given a stamp of approval. Accredited programmes are appreciated by graduate employers as it is seen as a reassuring sign of quality. Medical Engineering plays a major part in modern healthcare systems and has a massive contribution towards the diagnosis of disease and the treatment of patients. Medical Engineering runs through the health service in various ways and is responsible for many of the most successful surgical operations such as replacement of diseased hip/knee joints, various tissues, blocked arteries and other physical and cognitive impairments. Our medical engineering students study core modules such as clinical biomechanics for analysing normal and abnormal human movements, tissue/cell engineering and wound repair for replacing diseased or injured organs such as skin, cartilage and bone, clinical signals, genomic coding, biomaterials, human biodynamics, design and manufacturing of surgical tools and medical diagnostic devices such as electrocardiography (ECG), pacemakers, heart rate monitoring and oxyhaemoglobin devices, etc. Our students will be able to evaluate human physiological performance by using various gold standard diagnostic devices such as EMG, ECG, Blood Pressure, Spirometer (lung function), and analysis of skin and human body composition such as body mass index (BMI), body fat, etc.
Core: anatomy and medical terminology; biomaterials; biomechanics; cell and microbiology for engineers; circuits and systems; computer modelling techniques; engineering analysis (mechanical); engineering computation; engineering statistics; financial management; fluid mechanics 1; functional anatomy and physiology; further engineering analysis (mechanical); healthcare technology project; human biodynamics; implant design and technology; introduction to solid modelling; introductory mechatronics; manufacturing systems; materials engineering and design ; materials failure analysis; materials technology and processing; mechanical technology; medical ethics and regulations; medical instrumentation and imaging; project; rehabilitation engineering; sensors and actuators; structural mechanics; thermodynamics. Option: computer applications of numerical methods ; real-time computing and instrumentation; reliability engineering; 6 sigma for business excellence; tissue engineering and wound repair.
