SimScale Biomedical Engineering Workshop
Learn about the application of engineering simulation in the design of biomedical devices
SimScale and Hannover Medical School – 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.
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 session, 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.
Certificate of Completion
Students who watch all video lectures, complete the exercises, and submit their work using the Form in the Final Assessment Section will receive a special SimScale Certificate of Completion which you can add to your resume or course profile on Linkedin.
I hope you enjoy the course and Happy Simulating!
