The objectives of the Medical Engineering programme are:
- To provide students with a solid background in the design and analysis of civil engineering structures.
- To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts, to sketch/model engineering solutions and to be able to understand and prepare technical reports.
- To build awareness of current design practices through the use of the latest engineering standards (e.g. Eurocodes).
- To nurture computer modelling skills by encouraging students to develop their own software with the final purpose of analysing realistic civil engineering problems.
- To build critical awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of different design approaches when facing a civil engineering problem, including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy or health and safety.
