This specialisation allows you to focus on engineering design and the development of medical technologies. The specialisation encompasses recent advances in biomaterials, bioengineering and medical devices and instrumentation. You will develop a knowledge of the human body and its workings as well as of the fundamentals of regulation, clinical practice and clinical trials of medical technologies. This specialisation addresses the growing needs of the medical technology industry by graduating engineers with an expertise in this field and along with a broad awareness of their clinical needs. The specialisation is suitable for new graduates, professionals and managers who are keen to upgrade their existing design and management skills as well as to develop advanced theoretical and applied knowledge in the area of medical engineering.
