Biomechatronics is the application of mechatronic engineering to human biology, and as such it forms an important subset of the overall biomedical engineering discipline. This course focusses on a number of areas of interest including auditory and optical prostheses, artificial hearts and active and passive prosthetic limbs and examines the biomechatronic systems (hardware and signal processing) that underpin their operation.

AMME5790 is the last in a series of practical Mechatronic and Electrical courses taken over three years. It takes these engineering concepts, along with the associated mathematical, electronic and mechanical theory and applies this knowledge to a series of practical, albeit specialised biomechatronic applications that will be encountered by Mechatronic Engineers who enter this broad field on graduation.
A good practical knowledge in mechanical and electronic engineering; adequate maths and applied maths skills; background knowledge of physics, chemistry and biology; Some programming capability, MATLAB, C, C++; able to use common software tools used by engineers including CAD and EDA packages.
