EGB319 BioDesign

EGB319 builds on EGB210 Fundamentals of Mechanical Design to develop your engineering design skills, with particular emphasis on the medical device product development process. The impacts of the regulatory environment on medical device design will explored as well as the importance of quality management, risk management and usability engineering. Students will begin to understand the importance of intellectual property, reimbursement and business models on selecting appropriate concepts to translate to the market.The unit features real world learning where students work in teams to come up with concepts and designs to address an unmet clinical need. Students are exposed to the various roles that medical engineers may assume in professional practice. With a sound knowledge of the medical device development process, later units such as EGH435 Modelling and Simulation for Medical Engineers will add quantitative design skills to aid in refining medical device designs.
