Our aim is to promote bioengineering both nationally and internationally for the benefit of students, researchers, clinicians, medical technology and industrial participants and patient healthcare with a focus on bioengineering for better health.

2019 Transition Year Engineering Summer Camps

Engineering is for everyone! Trinity's Engineering summer camps are back

This year Trinity’s School of Engineering summer camps are back and they’re better than ever before! If you are about to start your 5th year of secondary school in September and want to find out more about what engineering, computing and technology have to offer then Trinity’s Summer Camp is the place for you. You will be given fully immersive experiences into all types of engineering and technology. No experience required, our camp is here for you to learn!
Please see further information on the School of Engineering website


The TCBE Winter Symposium is held in December annually in the Knowledge Exchange in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute. An annual review is delivered by the Director of the Centre. TCBE Researchers showcase their research with a 'Thesis-in-3" presentation with prizes awarded for the best presentations. There is also a poster display.


ESEM International Summer School
For three consecutive years from 2009 to 2012 Trinity Centre for Bioengineering hosted an international summer school for medical and engineering students igniting enthusiasm and passion among the students for the challenges and opportunities in bioengineering. Current healthcare challenges, such as the ageing of Europe's population as well as big killers such as cardiovascular disease, require multidisciplinary approaches for diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, the focus of this unique summer school established a platform of cooperation between medicine and engineering across Europe already starting at an undergraduate level. With different working cultures and educational backgrounds, the aim of the Summer School at Trinity College has been to teach students how to work together efficiently by getting small groups designing new, novel medical devices targeting specific medical and clinical problems. These include the design of a total replacement for a degenerated ankle, solutions for revascularisation of the lower limbs, technologies to monitor the elderly and the design of artificial ventilation systems. Many of the students returned to Trinity College Dublin to pursue further studies in the Bioengineering arena.
