Via the Examination Procedures of the School of Mechanical Engineering

Programme specification:

Graduates should have advanced level knowledge and understanding of current technology and research issues in the following areas:
- modern computational and experimental techniques;
- anatomical and physiological measurements;
- orthopaedic, solid mechanics and cardiovascular fluid mechanics;
- biomaterials; and biotribology.

Graduates should have completed an advanced level project of either a computational, experimental or theoretical nature in a selected area of medical engineering or biomechanics.

In completing this project and passing the taught course modules the participants will have demonstrated their ability to:
- deal with complex and contradictory knowledge, critically analyse complex problems,
- be able to develop new approaches to problem solving,
- be able to communicate effectively both orally and in writing in a multidisciplinary environment and
- be confident in the use of IT for data analysis and presentation.
