Course Summary

About the course

This integrated four-year MSc includes an intermediate BSc (Hons) in Bioengineering. It is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of the role of bioengineering in the health, food and environmental sectors.

The rapidly growing field of bioengineering applies the principles of design, modularisation and analysis to the development of biomedical technologies, devices and systems. This course provides you with a thorough understanding of bioengineering, as well as related biochemical and biophysical sciences, giving you opportunities to gain the practical techniques and skills you need to work in the bioengineering field.

To start with, you build your knowledge of living systems through the study of core units in human anatomy and physiology; microbiology and biochemistry; chemistry; and molecular genetics. As you advance in your studies, you explore a range of life sciences and technologies relevant to bioengineering, considering their application in regional, national and global contexts. This may include how bioengineering is applied in areas such as biomaterials and tissue engineering; the development of new medical and imaging devices; portable diagnostic technologies; or monitoring systems for food and environmental quality.
