What is bioengineering? What are the branches or subfields within bioengineering itself? How can bioengineering help people to achieve a better quality of life? What’s the need and challenges faced by researchers in this field? What is the scientific and technical knowledge needed to understand bioengineering? What are the factors that one needs to take into consideration in bioengineering design and innovation? How far are we towards the realisation in bridging the gap between the clinician and engineers? These are some of the questions we are going to address throughout the course.

About This Course

This course provides an introduction to the contemporary approach that bioengineering can offer in providing solutions to biological and medical problems. The scope of bioengineering itself is generally comprehensive, this course however highlights bioengineering in organ transplantation, biomaterials specifically in orthopedic implants, bioelectric and bioreactor. Some of the current applications of bioengineering principles within these sub-divisions are also discussed. Besides that, we will look through the characteristics of different types of biomaterial as well as material-host interaction. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to explore a brief overview of the development and innovation in biosensors, biofabrication and medical devices.

Who Is This Course For

The course would be an excellent source for students who love to explore the fundamentals of bioengineering. This interdisciplinary course would attract students who have background knowledge in human anatomy/physiology/biology, as well as engineering. The knowledge gain from this course can help to prepare students to pursue a career in research, technical and management in the medical technology industry, healthcare, business startup and management consultancy.

Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Illida Nawi

Illida has always been passionate about sharing her knowledge and mentoring students with their research projects. She obtained her degree in Biomedical Engineering (concentration in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering) from Case Western Reserve University, USA. After graduating, she pursued her studies in the design and validation of a novel-designed mechanical cell bioreactor and later earned MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Malaya, Malaysia. This is also where she acquired four years of teaching experience. Besides teaching, Illida also gained her experience in designing laboratory modules, supervising and training undergraduate and postgraduate students in research technical skills. Later on, she moved to Manchester where she was awarded her PhD from the University of Manchester for her research in regenerating cartilage in peptide hydrogels.
