Course Aims

Biomedical manufacturing is currently a rapidly growing industry over the past decades. It can be viewed as the application of manufacturing technology to biomedical products, of which the development processes are often tedious and multidisciplinary, involving advanced 3D modelling, surgical machining, pharmaceutical production and biomechanics. This course aims at providing essential knowledge in the biomedical product development (e.g. material properties, fabrication processes and design techniques for different applications) in order to provide ways to speed up the product development cycle. This course is multidisciplinary and covers the principles in mechanical, chemical, biological, and physiological aspects. Students can learn the techniques to apply the acquired knowledge for particular applications they are interested.
