Postgraduate Students


Welcome to the Centre for Bioengineering. Some introductory information about the Centre and our courses is available below but if you would like further information and/or advice, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you.

Bioengineering involves the application of engineering and science to areas of medicine, healthcare and biology. It encompasses research in areas of Medical Engineering, Biomaterials, Biomechanics, Rehabilitation, Modelling, Therapeutics, and Medical Informatics. Engineering within the environment of the human body requires a wide spectrum of disciplines from basic science through to concept design. The Centre for Bioengineering has an international reputation in Computational Bio-Fluid Mechanics and model-based decision support for the critically ill.

  • The library also has a website specifically for Postgraduate Students. The tutorials are an excellent way to learn about research methods and available information and
  • The medical library is the best facility for medical journals, but access is restricted. To obtain permission, go to the engineering library and get the appropriate form, to be signed by Professor Tim David and taken in person to the medical library. They will give you limited access and a card.
