Module overview

Medical Engineering (or Biomedical Engineering) is an exciting and multidisciplinary field that combines expertise in a wide range of engineering techniques, anatomy and physiology, medicine, healthcare and the personal and societal context in which patients and their carers live, and in which health-services and the healthcare industry operates. This module aims to provide an overview of technologies, and provide an awareness of the diverse challenges that form the background to research, development and use of Healthcare Technologies.
