Power House

This video looks at the challenges of reducing global warming and carbon emissions. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a new boiler technology which has the potential to transform the way electricity is produced and distributed. This is currently used in industrial and commercial settings, but micro CHP could offer...

Bionic Limbs

Richard Hirons, a clinical specialist in prosthetics, explains how engineers are designing prosthetic limbs which can reproduce normal sensory and motor control for amputees by combining sensors, artificial intelligence, motors, electronics, software and...

Nature Reinvented

This video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) looks at how bioengineers are developing new treatments for torn ligaments. Tissue engineering involves taking the patient's own cells and growing them on a synthetic scaffold before reintroducing...

Prosthetic Design

This inspirational video highlights careers in biomedical engineering. Until recently, bone cancer patients would have had a limb amputated, but today prosthetic surgery can remove the tumour section and replace it with individually engineered implants made from a...

Pure Water

This video, for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at how water is becoming an increasingly precious resource, even in affluent places like California where the infrastructure is struggling to cope with demand.

Engineers have looked at extreme conservation, sea water desalination...

Robotic Surgery

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explains how mechatronics, the combination of mechanical engineering, electronics and computer science, are used to develop robots. This example shows how mechatronics is being applied to the field...

Remote Medicine

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), explains how a telemedicine system is used by hospitals in the south-east of England to allow consultants to view injuries to patients and offer advice remotely. Software engineer, Scott Reynolds,...

Shifting Sewage

This film, from the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), looks at the London sewerage system. This is a combined system in which dirty water from households and excess rainwater all ends up in the same place. When heavy rainfall fills the system it needs to be able to overflow into the river rather than...

Smart Sensor Communications

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), features physiotherapist Jeroen Bergman who works with smart sensors at Charing Cross Hospital. He explains how a variety of sensors are used to analyse patients’ movements. Development work is...

Water, Water, Everywhere? (11-14)

This resource, from Siemens UK, encourages students to appreciate the importance of clean water and the problems that may arise in the absence of it. Students consider soluble and insoluble pollutants and methods of filtration. They then explore contamination by microorganisms, water-borne diseases and the...
