  • EG-219 Statistical Methods in Engineering

    This module offers a balanced, streamlined one-semester introduction to Engineering Statistics that emphasizes the statistical tools most needed by practicing engineers. Using real engineering problems students see how statistics fits within the methods of engineering problem solving and learn how to apply statistical methodologies to their field of study. The module teaches students how to think like an engineer when analysing real data. Mini projects, tailored to each engineering discipline, are intended to simulate problems that students will encounter professionally during their future careers. Emphasis is placed on the use of statistical software for tackling engineering problems that require the use of statistics.

  • EG-238 Experimental Studies for Medical Engineers

    The course introduces the students to experimental studies in a wide range of subjects. Each experiment is self contained and the student will present the findings in written form through a lab report which will have a set of experiment specific questions to answer. This written report also forms the basis for the assessment. All students work in groups and carry out five experiments which vary according to discipline, however the assignments are all individually submitted. The students keep a log-book of the experimental observations and results, which is used for reference for the technical report from each experiment written-up in the week after the experiment.

  • EGA219 Cell Biology and cell mechanics for engineers

    This course provides an introduction to the biology and mechanical properties of cells from an engineering prospective. The basic structures within the cell and the core processes of cell function will be covered and related to the interaction of cells within large populations and the growth of tissue. i.e.membrane bilayer, cytoskeleton, energy production, signalling, growth, division and genetic duplication. The fundamental principles will be related to specific areas of interest to medical engineers - technology developments, the risk of infection from medical implants and the use of stem cells for tissue engineering.
