Overview

Tissue engineering is an innovative clinical intervention and field of research whereby human cells are cultured outside of the body on a bioscaffold prior to being implanted in or on the body to replace a diseased or injured body part. The process of culturing cells exposes students to a range of cutting edge molecular and cell biology techniques and as well as inspiring their creativity in the 3D print design of their chosen bioscaffold.

In some disciplines, students need to demonstrate competency before they can progress further in their studies. Competency involves the application skills and knowledge to a particular standard performance. Students need to pass all competency assessments in a course and reach a total passing of 50% to be awarded a passing grade. Competency Assessment Items are identified in the course specification.

Applications in Human Tissue Engineering is a capstone course that enables students to apply the theoretical knowledge of the biomedical sciences that they have gained in their previous courses in a mini-research project. The course will also equip students with the practical skills that are relevant to the workplace or a higher degree in research.

This course contains a mandatory residential school.
