This subject involves undertaking a major design project, requiring independent investigation in a team context to produce an advanced biomedical engineering design in a timely and professional manner. Examples of possible design problems could include the development of a pacemaker and sensor, development of new methods for delivering personalized medical treatments, a new drug delivery device, glaucoma prosthesis or method or design for a new artificial heart or ventricular assist device. In addition to written reports, students will present their findings in a conference presentation format, held at the end of the project cycle in the second half of the semester.
At the end of this subject, students should be able to:
The major components of assessment are based on the student's ability to participate and contribute to a team based engineering design project. Specifically, students will be assessed on their ability to:
Each component of assessment is worth 20% of the final mark. To pass the subject students must obtain at least 50% overall, and 10/20 for each of the components.
