Outcomes and scope
The modules (and their associated assignments) and the research project also develop students' abilities to design, select, and apply technically advanced methods, techniques, and technologies to complex practical and theoretical biomedical engineering problems. The "capstone" project, Project (Biomedical Engineering) 886, develops students' intellectual independence and their ability to integrate advanced knowledge and skills from a range of contexts.
The MEngSc in Biomedical Engineering (Structured) at Stellenbosch University is a taught (module based) master's programme. It normally requires two years of fulltime study, but can in principle be completed in one academic year (from February in the first year to January of the second year) if all the modules that the student selected are offered in that period. The programme comprises 120 credits of module work and a 60-credit research assignment (RA). Further supplementary coursework at NQF level 8 (i.e. at the level of a postgraduate diploma or 4- year bachelor's degree) may be required to provide students with the necessary background for their modules and/or project.
