Introduction

Gain the technical knowledge, analytical ability and transferable skills in exciting and fast-developing fields.

Our Biomedical Engineering MSc is suitable for both practising professionals and new graduates with an engineering or science-based degree.

With this degree, you'll apply engineering principles and push forward technology. You'll create novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools for various medical conditions. Research and development in science and engineering will likely transform future healthcare.

  • The MSc has four streams, so you can specialise in your area of interest:
  • biomechanical
  • biomaterials
  • bioelectrical
  • regulatory sciences

You'll study specialised modules according to your choice of stream. Some taught modules are common between the four streams. These lead to the award of an MSc in Biomedical Engineering.

Biomechanical stream

This stream will enable you to:

  • learn how to use CAD design and structural FEA
  • understand fundamental aspects of biomaterials for medical applications
  • understand the importance of regulatory requirements for medical devices
  • critically assess the main advantages and limitations of medical products
  • understand the biomechanics of the human body
  • analyse the design and function of orthopaedic products

Biomaterials stream

This stream will enable you to:

  • understand the fundamental properties of biomaterials for medical applications
  • critically assess the main advantages and limitations of medical products for bone and cartilage tissue engineering
  • explore different techniques for biofabrication and bioprinting
  • understand the importance of regulatory requirements for medical devices
  • understand the biomechanics of the human body
  • analyse the design and function of orthopaedic products

Bioelectrical stream

This stream will enable you to:

  • understand the fundamentals of biomedical image processing techniques
  • understand the tenets of biosignal processing from bioelectronic sensors
  • learn about the functionality of the human bioelectrical system
  • learn about the methods for biosensing signals inside the body
  • learn about the methods for stimulus of nerve cells and neuroprosthetics
  • understand the integration of physical sensors and signal processing for biomedical systems

Regulatory sciences stream

This stream will enable you to:

  • understand global health policy and regulation related to medicine use
  • understand the global drug supply chain
  • discuss the role of WHO and national governments in promoting new medicines
  • analyse current health challenges
  • understand the biomechanics of the human body
  • analyse the design and function of orthopaedic implants
