MSc - Master of Science
Discover the principles and technologies that have led to biomedical engineering becoming essential in healthcare, medicine and human biology. Suitable for graduates in engineering or physical sciences, this master's degree combines knowledge of biomechanics and fluid mechanics in the human body with engineering design innovations.
Biomedical engineering, the application of engineering knowledge and skills to healthcare, medicine and human biology, is the fastest growing engineering discipline worldwide.
Contributing to the future development of artificial organs, medical devices and novel treatments, the School of Engineering is home to internationally recognised, ground-breaking research in biomedical engineering. This programme harnesses this expertise in key areas around biomechanics, cardiovascular fluid mechanics, tissue engineering, biomaterials, engineering design and manufacturing.
You’ll discover how to measure and analyse human movement, learn the principles of blood flow and the role of different bio-fluids in the human body, and gain an understanding of the structures and properties of materials used in medical devices.
Immersing you in computer aided design and engineering product design, we’ll introduce the latest 3D tools and techniques and task you with the development of innovative products and creative solutions.
Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the programme includes a supervised independent research project. This provides the opportunity to enhance your skills and knowledge in an area of biomedical engineering of your choice, supported by our specialist research facilities.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This programme is designed for engineers and physical scientists who want to develop specialist skills and knowledge in biomedical engineering.
Careers and employability
Whether you’re seeking a career designing medical devices or assistive technologies, focusing on research and development, or working in engineering management or consultancy, this MSc (Eng) will prepare you for a variety of opportunities in the UK and abroad.
The programme includes a strong practical element and incorporates the latest academic and industry research, preparing you to work effectively at the forefront of engineering.
Our professional accreditation with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers means you’ll graduate with a recognised qualification on the route to Chartered Engineer status.
