Course description

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.
