SimScale Biomedical Engineering Workshop

Learn about the application of engineering simulation in the design of biomedical devices

Course Overview

SimScale and Medical School Hannover – one of the world’s leading university medical research centers – have joined forces to offer this free 3-session workshop about the application of engineering simulation in biomedical engineering.

Course Format

Each session consists of:

  • A 60-minute video lecture
  • A step-by-step tutorial to help you put what you have learned in the lecture directly into practice
  • A 3-question quiz to cement your knowledge

Session 1: Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering

In the first module, we will talk about to the fundamentals of biomedical engineering. You will learn about the latest technology trends and how engineering simulation is being used today to improve individual diagnostics and therapy. We will show you how to perform your first simulation on a hip joint prosthesis.

Session 2: Stent Design and Application

Stents are small expandable tubes used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. During the second session, you will learn about the challenges and requirements of stent design in order to achieve maximum therapeutic success. Then you will evaluate the behavior of a stent by running a simulation yourself.

Session 3: In Vivo Blood Flow

The last session will expand your knowledge about biomedical engineering for blood flow simulation. You will learn about the fundamentals of the cardiovascular system and how prospective technologies based on simulation will help to treat widespread diseases. Finally, you will learn how to evaluate the danger of vessel calcification with the aid of fluid flow simulation.

Final Quiz

The final 10-question quiz includes a broad range of questions from all 3 sessions.

Certificate of Completion

Students who watch all video lectures, complete all step-by-step tutorials, and score at least a 7/10 on the Final Quiz will receive a special SimScale Certificate of Completion which you can add to your resume or course profile on Linked in.

I hope you enjoy the course and Happy Simulating!
