Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology. This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to improve healthcare diagnosis, monitoring and therapy. On this course you will be introduced to the possibilities of a career in biomedical engineering. You’ll explore the role of engineering in the design of medical devices, rehabilitation, physiological research and tissue engineering. You’ll emerge with a real understanding of how vitally important engineers are to modern healthcare
Features talks and interactive sessions from engineers and scientists from the Universities of Southampton, Bath and Liverpool, from Designability, a medical device charity, and from Salisbury District Hospital.
Using your engineering skills to design and build a device that solves an everyday clinical problem.
Gaining an understanding of patient life and how this affects the role of the biomedical engineer.
Learning how engineering plays a part in helping the rehabilitation process after surgery or injury.
Gaining an understanding of the devices modern medicine relies upon to track vital signs and treat patients.
Attending laboratory demonstrations which look at motion analysis and ultrasound imaging.
Taking part in masterclasses covering topics like stem cells and regenerative medicine, fixing fractures, implants and electric stimulation of muscles.
Building on your own skills and strengths and adding them to a team effort to solve engineering problems.
Talking to young engineers and scientists about the varied career paths you could take in biomedical engineering, what you could earn and what you could achieve.
Held at the University of Southampton and features talks and interactive sessions from engineers and scientists.
