Module overview

This module provides an introduction to the ways in which engineering methods are used in the design of a wide range of biomedical implants and devices for the treatment of various human diseases. In particular, you will learn about the design and function of auditory implants, cardiovascular implants and devices, prosthetic limbs and how regenerative medicine and tissue engineering are influencing the development of biomedical implants. The relevant background to anatomy, disease, injury and the mechanical properties of biological materials will be covered such that engineering solutions can be presented with respect to the associated clinical needs. In addition to lectures, you will have hands-on lab-based tasks and talks by specialist clinicians.
