Course Summary

Biomedical Engineering brings together four important research themes associated with advanced medical diagnostics: rehabilitation and assistive technologies, cell and tissue engineering and systems biology. We are currently home to 35 research students pursuing PhD in fields as diverse as infectious disease diagnostics for the developing world, brain-computer interfaces, and stem cell differentiation using nanotechnology, robots as orthotic aids, and the creation of artificial cells. PhD students in the Biomedical Engineering Division typically work alongside experienced post-doctoral researchers under the supervision of world leaders in their areas of domain expertise. The overall aim of our graduate school is to provide a world-leading environment for students which is intellectually stimulating, encourages them to contribute to culture, society and the economy and enables them to become leaders in a global environment. Students will receive comprehensive training in research in the engineering disciplines associated with their project and the research group’s activities, typically across a range of advanced analytical, numerical and experimental techniques. The Division benefits from strong links to industry as well as to the biomedical sciences and clinical medicine.
