1 Please retain this handbook as you will need to refer to it throughout your time at Strathclyde and perhaps for years to come in order to meet enquiries from employers and professional institutions. The aim of this handbook is to answer the many questions you may have about the different aspects of studying for a degree at the University Strathclyde. The handbook contains practical information about the University, the Department and your course of study including course regulations, class syllabi and departmental procedures. It is an important reference document which will help you to ensure that your time here is organised efficiently and to maximum benefit. The contents of this book are as far as possible up to date and accurate at the date of publication. Changes may be made from time to time and the University reserves the right to add to, amend, or withdraw information and resources, and to make any other alteration as it may deem desirable and necessary. Such changes will be published by incorporation in the next edition of the University regulations and student handbook. It is the responsibility of each individual student to become familiar with all University Regulations which apply to them. The University s regulations can be found in the University Calendar on the University s web pages: and the Department of Biomedical Engineering encourages students to read Part 1: General Regulations with particular reference to sections 3, 4 and 5, which describe the University s regulations regarding the library, examinations and student discipline respectively. There is also the University Student Handbook that you can access for University information: Dr Philip Riches, Course Director BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 1

2 Welcome From the Head of Department Dear all On behalf of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering, I would like to off a warm welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the University of Strathclyde. The Department of Biomedical Engineering is one of the oldest such departments in the world, and has been at the forefront of postgraduate teaching and research for over 50 years. We have developed a world-wide recognition for academic excellence in all that we do. This reputation precedes us and I know that the department s staff will do their utmost to ensure that our undergraduate degree will have the same success and international standing as our postgraduate courses. You also have your part to play in the success of the course and Department. The course team has put together an exciting curriculum, spanning the field of biomedical engineering, and I ask that you apply yourself to your studies with energy and enthusiasm. Wherever you go, you are now representatives of Biomedical Engineering and the University of Strathclyde. We fully understand that the transition from school to university is a major change. Educationally, you will be required to do a lot more independent learning, which necessitates good time management and motivation. You may be living away from home for the first time which also brings a new financial independence and responsibilities. If you feel that you are struggling in any way please come and talk to the course director, your Personal Development Advisor, or one of the other departmental staff, and we will do all we can to help. Good luck with your studies. Professor Terry Gourlay Head of Department Department of Biomedical Engineering BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 2

9 Departmental Information Staff The Department of Biomedical Engineering, in the Faculty of Engineering, was formed in 2012 following the merger of the Bioengineering Unit and the National Centre for Prosthetics and Orthotics. The merger reconnects two complementary and key areas of health technology teaching and research within the University. The single department offers students unrivalled undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities for learning and knowledge exchange in biomedical engineering disciplines. The latter years of the BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering is predominantly taught by the Bioengineering Unit in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The following Bioengineering Unit staff, with their contact details, will have a significant role on the course, including being Personal Development Advisors (see page 13). Other staff, including those from other departments, will also contribute to the course, especially in the first two years, and their contact details will be given by them in due course.

10 Wolfson Centre The Department of Biomedical Engineering is split over the first 5 levels of the Wolfson Centre. Level 1 (below ground level) holds the biomechanics laboratories. The ground floor (level 2) contains the departmental administrative offices and staff offices. There is a computer suite on level 3 and levels 4 and 5 contain more laboratories and staff offices. The normal hours of access to Wolfson Centre are: Monday to Friday 0800 to 1800 hours Every other time is considered out-with normal working hours. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays are considered to be out-with normal hours of access. Undergraduate students will not be permitted access to the building out of hours except in exceptional circumstances and with the direct permission of the Head of Department. The Wolfson Centre is a secure building. Under no circumstances should students bring friends or family into the building, who are not members of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, without the knowledge and approval of either the Head of Department, or the Course Director. A quiet general working area exists on Level 2 by the notice boards. You may use this area to relax or do work between lectures. Please note that staff offices surround this area and excessive noise and mess will not be tolerated. This area must be vacated at 6 pm. A small kitchen facility exists for general use. Abuse of this facility by either making a mess or by stealing food or drink from the fridge will result in undergraduate students being barred from the kitchen. If post arrives for you, sent to the department, it shall be put into the student pigeon holes on level 2. The computer suite on level 3 is for University work: you may use these general computers for completing assignments. They are not intended for general surfing, social media or for playing games. Any abuse of this facility will result in your access being withdrawn. Please note that staff offices surround this area and excessive noise and mess will not be tolerated. No food and drink is allowed in the computing facility. This area must be vacated at 6 pm. Out of hours computing facilities exist throughout the University, especially in the library. The University Policy on computing can be found in Appendix 3. Toilets are situated centrally near the lift on all floors. Not all floors contain specifically a male and a female toilet, however disabled facilities may be used by all. BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 10

11 Health & Safety University Health and Safety information may be found here: Essential departmental Health and Safety policy is: Emergency evacuation of buildings If you discover a fire: 1. raise the alarm by operating the nearest fire alarm break-glass call point. 2. leave the building by the nearest escape route When you hear the fire alarm: 1. Evacuate the building immediately using the nearest escape route 2. Do not delay your departure by collecting personal belongings 3. Where possible, close all doors through which you pass 4. Once outside, proceed to the designated assembly point 5. Do not use lifts during a fire alert 6. Do not re-enter the building until advised by University Security Staff or Safety Services staff Familiarising yourself with the emergency routes from the building and the location of fire alarm call points and fire-fighting equipment in advance of any fire alert will improve your response in the event of an emergency. In the event of an accident: Procedure for summoning first aid assistance All University Security staff are qualified to administer first aid. To summon assistance, telephone Security Control on emergency number If phoning from a mobile State your name, department and the telephone extension from which you are calling. Give your location and brief details of the casualty s injuries. If you consider the injuries are sufficiently serious to warrant hospital treatment, inform Security Control that an ambulance is required. Remain with the casualty until the arrival of the first aider who will take charge of the situation. Ring x3333 for advice and non-emergency assistance. In a student residence, ring 8888 for assistance. Security Control can be found on the ground floor of the Livingstone Tower and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Before participating in laboratory sessions, each student should have read and become familiar with the Departmental Safety Regulations. A copy of these regulations will be provided. Before research projects commence, all students must attend a Safety Talk organised by the Department. The Departmental Safety Officer is Mr Brian Cartlidge, room 4.02, extension 3283 or BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 11

12 Communication Students are required by Regulation to notify Student Experience of any change in your permanent home or term-time addresses. Student Experience sends at least four letters to each undergraduate student every year. It is therefore important that they have the correct home and term-time addresses. These letters advise students of their academic progress, provide an opportunity for students to check their undergraduate curriculum, and where applied for may assist the student to claim exemption from the Council Tax. Students can update their personal details on the University website The Department of Biomedical Engineering and the University will predominantly communicate with students using their Strathclyde account. It is students responsibility to check this account daily for new Departmental and University messages. The noticeboard in the communal area on level 2 of the Wolfson Centre may also be used for Departmental communication purposes. Individual class lecturers and tutors may use the University s virtual learning environment (MyPlace) to communicate class matters to students (http://classes.myplace.strath.ac.uk/). It is the students responsibility to ensure that they are able to engage with this environment as expected by individual tutors. Online training packages are available. Class tutors may also require assignments to be uploaded to MyPlace for assessment purposes, including Turnitin: a plagiarism detection software. Smoking The University has a policy on smoking. This is available from: Smoking is prohibited within all University buildings and within 15 feet (4.6m) of any University building entrance, doorway, stairway or covered area. You are also asked to take a responsible attitude to ensure that areas are kept litter free and that you do not stand in close proximity to open windows. Eating and drinking areas Eating and drinking are permitted in the foyer, office areas and the tea area only. Eating and drinking are not permitted in any labs, prosthetic or mechanical/electronic workshops. BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 12

13 Student Support Services There are numerous support services within the University and these are detailed in the University Student Handbook which is issued to all new students. In this section of the Departmental Handbook we show you where you can find support within the Department. Course Director The Course Director is your initial contact regarding all University issues. As you progress through the years, there may be an Adviser of Study for each year of your course. The aim of the Adviser is to counsel you on particular aspects of your current year and to assist you in choosing optional subjects to study. Year advisors will be identified in due course, but for session 2014/15 please contact Phil Riches for any academic or personal issue affecting your studies. Dr Philip Riches Level 4 If you feel that you cannot speak freely to the Course Director, please contact Professor Helen Grant or the Departmental Office. Prof. Helen Grant Level 4 Personal Development Scheme In addition to the support offered by the Course Director and Year advisors, every undergraduate student is allocated a member of staff as a personal development advisor (PDA). Your PDA will be a member of the Department of Biomedical Engineering staff and will be available for help and advice if you need them. The role of the PDA is: Provide general advice regarding the University Clarify student/staff expectations and responsibilities Monitor performance and give holistic developmental feedback Encourage reflection and planning Be available to give advice on particular problems and to put the student in contact with the appropriate specialized University service(s). Write references for the student for job applications Assist the student with the Personal Development Scheme and self-reflection The success of the Personal Development Scheme depends on the participation of both staff and students. You are required to see your Personal Development Adviser at least once every semester, even if only to confirm that all is well. Information regarding the Personal Development Scheme will be issued in the first few weeks of Semester 1 Students may request a meeting with their PDA at any time. To contact you PDA, either or phone the staff member using the contact information on page 9 to arrange a meeting. Please do not expect an immediate response or appointment. If the matter is urgent, please contact either the Course Director of the Departmental Offices who should be able to assist. Those who find they cannot speak freely to the PDA assigned to them are invited to approach either the Course Director, Dr Philip Riches, or Professor Helen Grant. BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 13

14 Staff-Student Committee A Staff-Student Committee, which normally meets twice per year, provides a forum where academic problems may be raised by student representatives who have been selected from each year of the course. Students are encouraged to consider the benefits of becoming a Student Rep, further information on which can be found at When selected, the names of reps will be notified via . The student reps are encouraged to run the Staff-Student Committee which normally comprises two student reps from each year of each course, the Deputy Head (Education), Year Advisers of Study, senior members of staff and others as appropriate. If there is an issue which is important to a large number of students and you believe should be discussed at this Committee, you should inform your student representative so that it can be placed on the agenda for the next meeting. Before the issue is brought to the meeting, however, it is IMPORTANT that it has first gone through the proper channels which are shown below. Issues with an individual class should be discussed firstly with the class leader, i.e. the lecturer involved, or if this is unsatisfactory, the Course Director. Other academic issues should be brought to the attention of the Course Director. Only once there has been no satisfactory resolution of a problem should it be brought before the Staff- Student Committee. Disability Service For information on this service please refer to the University Student Handbook. The service for students includes: Information and advice for disabled students and applicants. Assistance in accessing the Disabled Students' Allowance or similar funds for equipment and other help needed for study. Liaison with other agencies who can provide the sorts of assistance students might need, such as Sign Language Interpretation, readers or sighted guides. Help with arranging assessments, such as dyslexia assessments, where these are needed to support applications for assistance. Support in setting up appropriate exam arrangements, where students might need, for example, additional writing time or rest breaks. Dr Heba Lakany is the Departmental Coordinator for students with disabilities. If you believe that you qualify for special examination arrangements, then please make yourself known to Heba Lakany after first visiting the Disability Service. NB: It is important that arrangements are put in place several weeks prior to the start of the examinations. BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 14

15 The Course general information The BEng/MEng in Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary course that combines knowledge of the physical and life sciences with advances in technology and engineering to generate applications and solutions to clinically relevant problems. The course structure is principally in the Engineering pathway with associated learning in life and clinical sciences. The course aims to foster a multidisciplinary learning environment in which ideas and concepts from science, medicine and engineering merge to produce graduates with a broad range of key skills, capable of developing careers in biomedical engineering (research, industrial and NHS). Learning outcomes By the end of BEng or MEng Biomedical Engineering degrees, students should be able to demonstrate: Knowledge and understanding of: human anatomy, physiology, cellular and molecular biology in healthy and diseased states key mechanical and electrical engineering concepts and mathematics the application of engineering methods to the study of human biological systems and processes, and especially with regards to rehabilitation, medical devices, tissue engineering and emerging trends in the subject. the research, clinical and industrial/commercial roles and environments of professional biomedical engineers. Key global market regulatory bodies and ethics governance relating to clinical studies (including trails) and medical devices. Intellectual Skills: use engineering techniques coupled with clinical and life science knowledge to solve relevant problems in each discipline and at their interface. Be able to discuss clinical and technical issues with scientists, clinicians and engineers without the constraints placed by the terminology that normally isolate these professionals. formulate testable hypotheses and plan experimental and systematic investigations. apply appropriate analytical methods to data analysis. critically evaluate the result of their own research and that of others. assess and specify the regulatory, safety and ethical issues associated with any work they are engaged in. Transferable skills: work independently or within a multidisciplinary team. communicate oral and written work effectively. utilise modern information and communications technology. Use common hardware and software to perform engineering analyses manage resources and time. transfer techniques and solutions from one field of knowledge to another BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 15

16 Course overview Years 1 & 2 Core concepts in mathematics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, anatomy, physiology and molecular bioscience provide fundamental engineering and biomedical science knowledge. You take the majority of these classes alongside other engineers and biomedical scientists, while specialist classes will develop your Biomedical Engineering focus. Year 3 You will start to apply your knowledge in specific areas of biomedical engineering (eg biomechanics and biomedical materials) as well as deepening your understanding of core engineering and biomedical science topics. Year 4 Year 4 focuses on an individual research project. A generic skills class in research methods and professional studies will provide knowledge of research design and statistical analysis, insight into the role and environment of the biomedical engineer and an understanding of ethical, safety and quality management issues. Year 5 (MEng only) The group project is a major element of this year of the Masters course in which teamwork, creative collaboration, communication and effective management are developed. Advanced study in specialist areas such as medical device design, tissue engineering and robotic orthopaedic surgery will further develop and broaden your knowledge. The main reason for most students to pursue the 5 year MEng option is to complete the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status before graduating and therefore to avoid the need to return for further study at a later stage. The option to graduate after four years with a BEng Honours award is open to all students and many employers traditionally take on such graduates with a view to further in-house training which may also provide a route to Chartered status. However, current experience is that such employers look for a good class of degree and evidence of a well-rounded portfolio of achievement. First Year All students shall undertake classes amounting to 120 credits as follows: Compulsory Classes Level Credits Engineering Analysis BE100 Anatomy and Physiology for Biomedical Engineers 1 20 BE101 Biomedical Engineering 1 10 BE103 Analytical and Numerical methods in Biomedical Engineering 1 20 BM102 Molecular Bioscience 1 20 EE107 Electronic and Electrical Principles EM105 Electrical and Mechanical techniques and design 1 20 Second Year All students shall undertake classes amounting to 120 credits as follows: Compulsory Classes Level Credits Design and Engineering Application BE200 Engineering Mechanics in Biomedical Engineering 2 20 BM203 Cell and Molecular Biology 2 20 EE269 Electronic and Electrical Principles BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 16

If you take a class but have not registered officially for that class you will not be awarded a credit. Conversely, if you register for a class then do not take it, you will be recorded as having failed unless you delete the class from your record. Coursework Try hard to keep up with your coursework - it is important. If you miss the deadlines without satisfactory reasons, you may find that your assessment for that class is heavily compromised. Only you can judge if you can afford to lose marks which might affect either your progress on the course or your final assessment. It should be noted that penalties may be incurred for late coursework. In any event, all coursework should be submitted not less than 3 weeks prior to the relevant Examination Board. Pass marks and academic progress Normally the pass mark for each class is 40% unless otherwise notified (NB: level 5 subjects require a pass mark of 50%). However there are a number of reasons why you should set your sights higher than this, not least being the fact that your marks will appear on your Academic Transcript, copies of which are often sought by prospective employers. In addition, where the classes contribute to the grading of your final degree classification, it is important for you to secure the highest possible marks. Students in their first, second and third years, and fourth year (MEng only), who perform well, will be rewarded by the award of a Dean's Certificate for meritorious performance. By passing a class students acquire the credit for that class. 120 credits are taken each year of the course. Progress on the BEng degree requires students to accumulate at least the following number of credits Progress into year Accumulated credits BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 18

19 Progress on the MEng degree requires students to accumulate at least the following number of credits Progress into year Accumulated credits In addition to the above requirements, a credit-weighted average of 60% is required to progress to the next year of the MEng degree course. If a student has a creditweighted average below 60% they will be required to move to the BEng degree course, provided all other progress requirements have been satisfied. Faculty Compensation Scheme The Faculty operates a Compensation Scheme which is designed to assist Boards of Examiners to take decisions about student progress at the end of each of the first, second and third years of undergraduate study and the first four years of an integrated Masters degree. Fail marks in the range 30-39% may be eligible for compensation under the scheme and converted to a pass provided the weighted credit average across the students prescribed curriculum is 45% or higher. Up to 20 credits may be compensated in this way. The scheme can be applied only to the student s first attempts and, therefore, is normally used only at the June meetings of the Boards of Examiners when the results from the January and May/June degree examinations are considered. Classes in which coursework is outstanding (i.e. not submitted) are not eligible for compensation. Please note that the mark does not change, but rather the credits for the class are awarded based on your satisfactory overall performance in other classes in that year. Examinations and Resit Attempts If a student does not pass a particular examination and it is not compensated, it is essential to resit outstanding examinations at the next examination diet or at the next available opportunity (or complete supplementary work to a satisfactory standard) so that eventually the total credits required for the final degree can be accumulated. Note that although Examination Boards normally allow undergraduates two attempts to gain a particular credit (or submit supplementary work), such attempts must be at two consecutive offerings of the examination. It should also be noted that the marks used to determine the final honours or MEng grading are based on those obtained at the first examination attempt. The August diet of examinations is usually dedicated to resit examinations. Students should ensure that they do not book holidays over this period in case they need to resit an examination. BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering Student Handbook 2014/15 19

20 Medical Certificates and Impaired Performance If a student believes that their academic performance has been impaired due to medical or personal circumstances they should inform their department and attach supporting evidence such as a doctor s note. The department will copy the form to the relevant Course Director and Student Experience. If a student is unable to attend the University due to illness a medical certificate is required. The type of certificate depends on the duration of the illness and whether the student misses an examination or some other form of assessment. Please refer to the section on Absence, for the University rules. Award of the degrees It is important to understand that your performance in the earlier years of your course can have a bearing on your final award. This means that continued high performance will be rewarded but with emphasis on the later stages of the course. You should also be aware that, in line with recommendations of the accrediting institutions, the performance to be taken into account is based on first diet assessment. The mechanism for calculating your final marks is given below. BEng Composition of final mark: 15% of Year 2 mark 25% of Year 3 mark 60% of Year 4 mark Year 2: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits. Year 3: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits. Year 4: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits. MEng Composition of final mark: 15% of Year 2 mark 25% of Year 3 mark 60% of Year 4/5 mark Year 2: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits. Year 3: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits. Year 4/5: Weighted average of first attempt at compulsory credits (100 credits) in year 4 and the 120 credit 5 th year curriculum.
