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 include the development of a pacemaker and sensor, development of new methods for delivering personalized medical treatments, and a new device for interfacing with the brain. In addition to written reports, students will present their findings in an oral presentation format.
System-level device descriptions, component interface specifications, regulatory bodies and biomedical device approval processes, intellectual property, component specifications, biomaterials and biocompatibility, manufacturing specifications, economic analyses.
This subject has been integrated with the Skills Towards Employment Program (STEP) and contains activities that can assist in the completion of the Engineering Practice Hurdle (EPH).
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having completed this unit the student should be able to:
Three components follows:
