Seminar: Biomedical Engineering

Subject description

Brief introduction to different topics and problems in Biomedical Engineering; selecting a research problem from the list of problems. Guided and supervised progression through various steps of the research project: problem study, literature overview, study of existing solutions, and proposal of novel solutions. The students will report in a written and oral form after each step.

The subject is taught in programs
