Optional modules: biomedical imaging and image processing; control theory for bioengineering; biofluid mechanics; advanced biofluid mechanical research; biomechanics and biomaterials; tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; advanced separation science and industrial case studies; process instrumentation and practice.

Assessment methods

Conventional assessment methods such as assignments and written exams are used for most modules to gauge the development of subject knowledge and understanding. Since the course has a heavy weight on the development of research skills, other assessment methods such as laboratory reports (suitable for one of the optional modules), computer simulations, project reports and oral presentations with or without peer judgement are also used for the assessment of certain elements of modules. A short version of a viva voice examination is used for the final dissertation assessment (carrying 15 per cent of the dissertation mark) to make the whole student experience complete.
