The emphasis of this module is on applications and design of Micro Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS) devices for Biomedical and related applications. MEMS fabrication techniques and processes are covered. Membranes and cantilevers used for sensing and actuation and how geometry affects their sensitivity and structural response must be studied. The course will conclude with an introduction to microfluidics and its application to biotechnology.

This module will describe the principles and role of digital image processing and analysis in medical imaging. It covers both the underlying theory and provides students with practical experience of these techniques applied to medical images using a computer image processing package such as Matlab.

This course will examine multidimensional aspects of medical device development and manufacturing and provide students with the entrepreneurship skills necessary to understand how devices are developed and brought to market. 

  • The module provides advanced knowledge of the relevant background science, theory, practice and materials required to fabricate permanent implants to replace tissue function, and other orthopedic and mobility devices.
  • This course also teaches biological processes that occur during human tissue contact with artificial surfaces, how to critically read and review the literature on tissue engineering, how to anticipate biocompatibility issues with a variety of implant devices students may later encounter, current approaches directed toward the engineering of cell-based replacements for various tissue types.

This module examines some of the theories and methods associated with educational research methodologies through a consideration of definitions and purposes of research, approaches to framing the inquiry, methods, analysis and writing up the research project.

The module aims at developing confidence, critical understanding and skills to enable students to embark on their own educational research project. It also aims at providing a basis for informed judgments about research methods and evidence those members of the research-led profession need to make.

The module provides students with the advanced skills for studying the other courses of the program “product design and development”. It forms advanced skills in embedded systems design. Those skills are usable in designing digital control units for consumer electronics, industrial automation, telecommunication systems and others. This Module includes lectures, laboratory work and an individual project.

This course is designed to provide an understanding of the key elements in project management as well as the processes and motivations of innovation and entrepreneurship.

The course enables students to identify and plan the scopes and objectives of the project.

It covers the important steps in the monitoring, control and evaluation of the project. The course will equip students with the essentials of innovation and how to translate innovative ideas into commercial ventures.


The aim of this module is to enable biomedical engineer students to develop knowledge of how instruments work in health facilities and thereby recognize their limitations. Therefore, the biomedical engineer students will be able to develop an understanding of the measurement principles of medical instrumentation, including biochemical sensors, bio-potential amplifiers, bioelectrical signals (ECG, EEG), measurement of respiratory function, cardiac variables, blood pressure, blood flow as well as medical and laboratory devices.

This module is designed to build and advance the principles of biomechanics and introduce the concept of performance analysis within a medical rehabilitation context.

Utilizing biomechanics to create evidence-based intervention strategies to optimize rehabilitation.

Introduction to Computer Aided Design theory and application using the software.

Under this module, the methods of control of a robot and telemanipulation are studied. Computer simulations, MATLAB are used to explore biomimetic autonomous robots. This is a studio-based course with hands-on exercises with small robots and actuators.
