Course Summary

The MSc by Research in Medical Engineering provides graduates with the opportunity to develop knowledge, understanding and expertise in their chosen field of research, beyond the level of a taught master’s degree, but without the requirement to complete as much novel research as a doctoral student. Within the College of Engineering world-leading research is conducted in a number of areas, including diagnostic sensors and computational modelling of physiological systems.

Through years of experience, engineers are very well equipped to approach medicine from an entirely different perspective, which can lift medical care to a next level. Our Biomedical engineering research group specialises in the development and application of computational tools to:

Improve our understanding of the human physiology

Develop advanced diagnostic techniques

Optimise the design of medical devices

Your supervisor will:

  • Help you develop your research plan in the early stages of your MSc
  • Advise on research aims and objectives and suggest relevant training or skills courses
  • Provide direction in terms of relevant literature and sources
  • Give guidance on gathering, recording and analysing data
  • Supervise your written work, providing constructive criticism and ensuring you keep to deadlines
  • Support and advise you when it comes to presenting papers at conferences, publishing your work and attending your viva (the final oral examination of your thesis).
