Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

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.

Biomedical engineering research at Swansea

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
  • Optimize the design of medical devices

The engineering research degrees at Swansea University draw on the exciting medical research that is taking place within the College of Engineering and the Swansea University Medical School.

The research success in the two colleges led to the creation of the £22 million Centre for NanoHealth (CNH), a unique facility linking engineering and medicine.

Welsh Provision

If you are a Welsh speaker our dedicated academy, Academi Hywel Teifi, is here to support you throughout your time at Swansea University. We offer you:

  • An interview through the medium of Welsh when applying for a place.
  • The option to receive your personal correspondence in Welsh - we will then communicate with you in your language of choice.
  • The option to write and submit your coursework or exams through the medium of Welsh (even if you have chosen to study in English), and every effort will be made to mark your work in its original language.
  • A Welsh-speaking personal tutor.
  • One-to-one support to improve your academic Welsh language skills.

Since 2011, there has been a 40% increase in the number of students studying through the medium of Welsh at Swansea University and our TEF* data over the last two years shows that Welsh-medium students are high achievers in regards to employability (*Swansea University TEF return 2017 and 2018).
