  • Objectives
    This programme aims to prepare specialists with advanced skills in experimental and numerical techniques, computational modelling and in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to biological problems, allowing you to participate in the advancement of knowledge and technology in this field.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Undergraduate degree (minimum second-class honours or overseas equivalent) in Engineering or the Physical Sciences. Each application is individually assessed; you are recommended to write for guidance in specific cases.
  • Academic Title
    Msc Biomedical Engineering
  • Course description
    Biomedical engineering is a new and rapidly emerging field of engineering that relies on a multidisciplinary approach to research and development by applying the principles of science and engineering to biological and medical problems.Specialists in this area face problems that differ significantly from the more traditional branches of engineering. Nevertheless, the biomedical engineer relies on methodologies and techniques developed in more traditional engineering fields, which are further developed and adapted to the particular complexities associated with biological systems. These applications vary from the design, development and operation of complex medical devices used in prevention, diagnosis and treatment, to the characterisation of tissue behaviour in health and disease, to the development of software products and theoretical models that enhance the understanding of complex biomedical issues.

    The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is organised by a team of Medical Engineers within the School of Engineering and Materials Science, which has an internationally leading reputation in research, working closely with collaborators in Europe, US and Asia, on exciting research and development projects in this field.

    Programme outline

    The programme includes three core modules, five option modules and a research project.

    Core modules

        * Mechanics of Continua
        * Research Methods and Experimental. Techniques
        * Medical Ethics, Law Regulatory Practice in Bioengineering
        * Research Project (four modules)

    Option modules may include:

        * Biomechanics and motion analysis
        * Advanced Bioflluid Mechanics
        * Tissue engineering.
        * Functional Materials in Medical Engineering
        * Princials and Applications of Medical Urology
        * Implant Design and Technology
        * Clinical Measurements


    The methods of assessment include coursework and formal examinations. Many modules will include continuous assessment. The Research Project will be conducted under close supervision during the summer term and is evaluated by thesis, presentation and viva examination.
