Specific information

The course is not available for exchange students

Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to convey a contemporary view of research and development in biomedical engineering and related areas. The course also provides training in written communication. After passing the course the student should be able to:

  • describe the biomedical engineering research front line
  • portray engineering problems in health care
  • discuss, in writing, biomedical engineer research and development

 

Course content

The course content is defined by the lectures and the study visit

Teaching and working methods

The course includes eight lectures of two hours each given by researchers at LiU or invited speakers from industry and health care. In addition, the course contains a study visit at a biomedical engineering company. The student should also write a short essay based on examples of biomedical engineering in media. The essay can be written in Swedish or English.
The course is scheduled over the entire spring semester.
