 The 2016 BMERM summer school is a three-day event with the following themes:

BMERM Showcase includes showcase outputs of BMERM PhD graduate/students projects and an industry perspective of the future of engineering in medical technology.

Two-day workshop on computational solid mechanics in a range of advanced topics including model generation from imaging data, multiscale modelling, user subroutines for Abaqus, scripting, experimental data fitting etc.

An impressive line-up of speakers will present at the event including:
