      Education

      2017

      Sep 2014 - Jun 2017
      • Sheffield, United Kingdom
      • Currently studying Bioengineering in the University of Sheffield which is a degree that combines medical aspects to the world of engineering. This creates specific streams for us as students to undertake. Biomedical Engineering which is the application of design and engineering to solve medical problems so an example of this would be prosthetics. Tissue and Skin Engineering which teaches us how to create skin or other biological matter from cells to aid in the healing process of injuries. Finally the last stream is Medical Devices which includes the teaching of medical imagining machines or other devices and how they work. I take the Biomedical Engineering stream as I believe it is best suited to me, I am taught how to create solutions and use my own practical thinking to solve problems. For a prosthetic limb for example, using engineering knowledge and my passion for design I will hopefully be able to create something that is aesthetically pleasing, but through knowledge of ergonomics, a device that is comfortable, compatible and life-changing for the end user.
