Medical Engineering MSc by Research

Course Description

Take advantage of one of our 100 Master’s Scholarships to study Medical Engineering at Swansea University, the Times Good University Guide’s Welsh University of the Year 2017. Postgraduate loans are also available to English and Welsh domiciled students. For more information on fees and funding please visit our website.

Medical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to both the human body and to a broad range of instrumentation used in modern medicine.

The courses at Swansea University draw on the exciting medical research that is taking place within the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine. The research success in the two colleges led to the creation of the £22 million Centre for NanoHealth (CNH), a unique facility linking engineering and medicine.

Our Medical Engineering graduates gain the skills of engineering, whilst also providing employers with the added experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the ability to communicate with clinicians.

Funded MSc by Research Studentship: Increasing the Value of CFD Data through Advanced Post-Processing Technique and Blood Damage Models Optimisation - Single Award

*This scholarship is part funded by the Welsh Government’s European Social Fund (ESF) convergence programme for West Wales and the Valleys. *MSc by Research Scholarship for UK or EU applicants in the field of Medical, Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering with a focus on computational modelling.Subject study:Increasing the Value of CFD Data through Advanced Post-Processing Technique and Blood Damage Models Optimisation for Iterative Design Improvement of the Calon Cardio Minivad Implantable Heart Pump.Brief Summary of project:Calon Cardio manufactures the next generation implantable blood pump and associated control systems. It aims to make novel, smaller and lower cost heart assist pumps that minimises potential blood damage. Calon Cardio has already developed different numerical models via an ASTUTE project. The company needs to develop cutting edge post-processing techniques to better predict the hydraulic performance of its pump over varying operating speeds and pressure-flow characteristics. The work involves also optimising the current numerical blood damage models post-processing techniques to achieve better estimates of pumps' potential blood damage, in terms of red blood cells damage, platelet activation, white blood cells damage and von Willebrand Factor degradation. Further to this, part of the work will be focused on the optimisation of the existing numerical models for haemolysis estimate.The company wants to improve the current post processing techniques and to optimise the existing numerical models to better predict the pump performance in order to gain further understanding around the blade and rotor geometry design, as well as volute, diffuser, outlet pipe and the secondary flow.The MSc by Research student will build on this work to optimise current Calon Cardio numerical models and develop innovative post-processing techniques to better predict pump performance and blood damage caused by the pump. In vitro measurements will support the verification and validation of the optimised numerical models and the developed post-processing techniques for the project scope.
