CAO Code: DC197 Contact: Dr Caitriona Lally, caitriona.lally@dcu.ie Tel: +353 1 700 7608 Room: S386 Understanding Biomedical Engineering The world of medicine is evolving and expanding rapidly, with new treatments and new diseases appearing all the time. Similarly, the number of medical devices needed to apply these treatments and fight these diseases is growing. From cameras that explore blood vessels to scanners that analyse the entire human body, biomedical engineering is in greater demand than ever before. Traditionally, medical device companies have relied on employing engineers from such disciplines as mechanical and electronic engineering, and then providing additional training in bioengineering. But this course now integrates the necessary aspects of biology and medicine with the technical engineering aspects required to engineer medical devices. The School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, in co-operation with the School of Biotechnology and the School of Electronic Engineering, has designed this degree in consultation with the healthcare industry and medical community, ensuring you will receive a relevant, up-to-date and exciting education.
