Advising Track Overview
Healthcare Engineering Design is a discipline that applies the design concepts and principles of engineering to medicine. The objective of the healthcare engineering design track is to prepare students with problem solving skills of engineering and appreciable knowledge connecting engineering and medicine fields to advance medical treatment and diagnosis. This course will equip the students with the skillsets in design and analysis of surgical tools, surgical robots, , lifesaving equipment, biomedical instruments for treatment and diagnosis, physiological parameter monitors using sensors, biomechanics (cardiovascular, musculoskeletal), biomedical imaging, medical devices, cell and tissue engineering and more with various medical applications. The healthcare engineering design track at EPD will also bring the students with research opportunities in biomaterials, drug delivery, biomechanics (hard and soft tissue), mechanobiology, sports engineering, cellular and tissue engineering, neuroscience and engineering, computational biomedical engineering, new DNA sequencing methods (generic engineering). Students graduated from biomedical engineering track are multi-disciplinary (spanning engineering and medicine) and have career opportunities in medical regulatory authorities, medical devices and bioinstrumentation, imaging and diagnostic services (eg. X-Ray, MRI, infusion pumps), medical robotics, implant design and fabrication, animal trails, hospital management and consultancy.
