Biomedical Engineering 1A introduces students to the exciting interdisciplinary field of Biomedical Engineering through lectures from experts in the key thematic areas of Biomedical Engineering, and practical hands-on training that every Biomedical Engineer needs to know. Areas you will cover include: (i) Medical Imaging; (ii) Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering; (iii) Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology; (iv) Medical Devices and Sensors; (v) Biomechanics and Computational Biomedical Engineering; (vi) Biomanufacturing; and (vii) Bionics and Neuromodulation. You will also complete two major assignments. Assignment 1 is the BMET1960 CANNES (creatively argued no-nonsense ethics scenarios) Film Festival, in which you will develop a persuasive position on a biomedical ethical scenario with your peers and present it creatively in a video. In Assignment 2 you will explore one of the areas of Biomedical Engineering that interests you and present a hypothetical "game-changing" technical report for the field. The quizzes, assignments and exam make up 60% of the total assessment. The remaining 40% comprises practical work (the Manufacturing Technology Workshop) involving a range of hardware and software skills vital to your future work as an engineer. We hope this introductory unit stirs your passion and interest in the exciting field of Biomedical Engineering!
