Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Student learns the basics of the working principles of the research and selected reliability and testing methods used in the field of bioadaptive technology. Student understands how these principles can be applied to design portable point-of-care and lab-on-a-chip devices. Concept of translational utilization of the research method principles to develop health and well-being solutions is awakened. Student realizes the process steps that are needed from the first idea of a product to the commercialization of a medical device. Students cultivate both their technical knowhow and personal skills of an engineering expert needed in the work life in the field of bioadaptive technology.

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Light, atomic force and electron microscopies, optical profilometry, selected atomic and molecular spectroscopy methods, mass spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies, chromatography, microfluidistics, point-of-care devices, lab-on-a-chips, legislation concerning implantable medical devices, mechanical testing, selected surface characterization methods, adhesion testing, selected surface treatment methods, selected electrochemical research methods, microscale energy production and storage methods, basics of biosensor, microelectrode and actuator technologies. Work life interviews and laboratory exercises.

Metoder, arbetssätt och bedömningsgrunder (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Continuous evaluation is used on the course. Thus, this course can not be passed by taking only the examination but active participation is demanded:

Group work (written methods reports, oral method presentations, and the collected educational materials, i.e. usually videos or tutorials), individual students and groups are evaluated

Review essays (1 A4-page in length) individual student is evaluated

Work life portfolio, individual student contribution is evaluated

Arbetsmängd (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

50 h contact teaching, 85 h  independent studies

Studiematerial (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Course book: Skoog, Holler ja Nieman, Principles of Instrumental Analysis, Harcourt, 1998 (or more recent). Plenty of other material will be used in the literature survey stage.
