Course Description

The dissertation is an independent piece of work based on a topic of the students’ own choice.  The students are encouraged to focus their dissertation on a problem confronting the biomedical industry, and demonstrate how the design fundamentals and technical knowledge they have learnt during the taught programme can be put into practice to provide solutions towards addressing the problem. The dissertation should contain a degree of original work. Formative feedback is given in regular meetings with a supervisor.
