Final Year Projects for the BEng and MEng in Medical Engineering and BSc in Clinical Technology
Each year we have up to 40 student final year projects of which 5 are usually industry based.
Below is a typical list of project titles:
Health authorities in the UK are among the largest employers in Europe and are supported by a large and diverse industrial sector supplying diagnostic and monitoring equipment, orthopaedic devices and artificial organs. The mix of professional engineering and healthrelated skills acquired will enable you to pursue a wide choice of careers in this dynamic and growing sector.
Clive Beggs is professor of medical technology at the University of Bradford. He argues that medical engineering's life-saving contribution to healthcare is being largely ignored, and that the discipline is suffering as a result.
The Medical and Healthcare Technology Lecturers and Research team includes:
- Professor Clive Beggs (microbiology, biophysics and tissue engineering)
- Professor Simon Shepherd (biophysics and genomics)
- Dr Peter Twigg (biomaterials and biomechanics)
- Dr Mansour Youseffi (orthopaedic biomaterials, rehabilitation and cell/tissue engineering)
- Dr John Buckley (normal and abnormal human gait analysis, biomechanics and visual performance).
A tissue characterisation laboratory, incorporating an atomic force microscopy (AFM) suite, which enables the nano- and microstructure of animal/human tissue and other biomaterials to be characterised in great detail. This facility enables the physical and biological performance characteristics of tissue to be better understood.
