In the first semester, students learn fundamental methods, techniques and workflows for digital 3D modelling and animation. These skills are then built on by most students in their Semester 3 dissertation projects - with students applying their skills to chosen project within a wide range of possible topics - from microbiology through to gross anatomy. Student projects in years past have ranged from modelling the protein structures of individual viruses, through human organs or even modelling large mammals.

Example projects here include:

Sara Bakalchuk – Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair

In collaboration with Terumo Aortic, this MSc project provide a mobile application populated with interactive models which showcase the key features of Terumo Aortic Relay proximal scalloped stent graft, and how it is utilized to in Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) surgeries to create a seal and exclude the aneurysm, while also allowing for profusion to the branch vessels. This application is intended to be shown to clinicians and other professionals at healthcare conferences.

Niamh Mundy - The Digital Dolphin

The digital dolphin is an android app that consists of a series of 3D anatomically accurate 3D models that demonstrate the structure and function of the thoracic anatomy of a harbour porpoise.
