    BSc Biomedical Materials Science


    Year one

    You will combine study of the structure and properties of materials, which include ceramics, metals and polymers, with cell biology and chemistry. Your study for the year will also include an introduction to medical materials and consolidation of mathematical skills.

    Year two

    You will develop your materials knowledge to understand the interrelationship between the processing and properties of materials and materials characterisation techniques. You will also study how biomaterials are formed into medical devices. Study of human physiology, protein function, immunobiology and further cell biology and biochemistry will prepare you for year three.

    Year three

    In this exciting year all your hard work is pulled together through both a cutting edge research project, often within a team sponsored by industry or government funding and the specific study of biological applications of biomaterials.

    These two areas cover approximately half the mark weighting for this year. The rest of your studies include modules on advanced materials and biomechanics with a range of options which you can tailor to your interests such as tissue engineering, drug delivery, fibre reinforced composites and further biology options.

    In addition to the normal modes of study you will attend medical device implantation operations, receive talks from surgeons and industrialists who use biomaterials in their work, and present your research both in a dissertation and as an oral presentation.
