Brief track record
Edwin Andione Khundi is both Biomedical Engineer and Mechanical Engineer. He studied his MSc in Biomedical Engineering at University of Strathclyde, UK in 2015. He also studied his BSc in Mechanical Engineering at University of Malawi –The Polytechnic in 2014. He is currently working as a lecturer and Head of Engineering Department at Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST). The engineering Department at MUST offers three undergraduate engineering programs namely: Chemical, Biomedical and Materials Engineering. He has been involved in different novel research projects such as “development of software applications to be incorporated in motion capture systems for visualisation and parameter calculations for spine geometry of patients with scoliosis”, “mapping and modelling of care flow of patients with diabetes retinopathy, design of hybrid power plant for hospitals and schools to mitigate power outage and climate change problems” and many other projects related to renewable energy, food processing, chemical engineering and materials engineering. His team has specialised professionals in fields of biomedical engineering, materials and metallurgy engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, food processing, manufacturing and software engineering. The team is collaborating with both international and local universities such as University of Strathclyde and University of Malawi in terms of implementation of some of the projects. Edwin Khundi is currently pursuing his split site PhD degree programme in Biomedical Engineering at University of Strathclyde.
