Engineering design reports, biostatics, bioethics, design in a biomedical environment for fatigue, fasteners, welded joints, plastics: use of engineering codes, pressure vessel design, medical devices design and manufacture.

This course will cover more in-depth engineering design methods than ENME301 and cover procedures that are not included in the engineering science subjects.

The subject matter will have a biomedical design focus and will include additional content to cover bioethics and regulatory compliance.

Overall students are brought to a level where they can undertake a substantial biomedical engineering design problem in a methodical manner, and can produce a professional quality design report.
