Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The main goal of the course is to train medical engineering students in working in groups and solving assigned practical problems and making sound quantitative or qualitative analysis in their field of study. This project course and the successive project courses give the students the possibility of applying the tools they are learning in the courses in Theory and Methodology of Science with Applications, and Statistics for Medical Engineering, Signal Processing and Data Analytics in Biomedical Engineering, and Simulation Methods in Medical Engineering. This course gives the students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to solving practical problems that are relevant to their field of study and to train their ability to plan, execute, document and communicate the results of their assigned projects. Further, the course aims at training our students in considering ethical aspects when exercising their profession.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course students will be able to:

·       Participate in an active way and carry out a smaller group project together with others and contribute to solving the assignment

·       Identify and apply relevant methods, models, and knowledge from the areas of medical, electrical, and software engineering to given problems

·       plan and with adequate methods undertake given tasks within predetermined time frames 

·       create, analyse and critically evaluate different technical solutions to a given problem,

·       identify and fill in any gap in their knowledge in order to carry on an assigned project

·       in English, in both speech and writing, report and discuss their results and the scientific grounds and arguments on which they are based

·       within the frame of the assigned project, assess and show awareness of ethical aspects on research and development work with respect to methods and results of the project.
