Course Summary

Overview

Biomedical engineering is a fast evolving interdisciplinary field, which has been at the forefront of many medical advances in recent years. As such, it is a research-led discipline, which sits at the cutting edge of advances in medicine, engineering and applied biological sciences.

This MSc programme is designed to provide an advanced biomedical engineering education and to develop specialist understanding; the programme contains a large project component which allows you to develop advanced knowledge and research skills in a specialist area.

The programme also aims to develop a multidisciplinary understanding of the subject, which can be applied in a variety of clinical, biomedical and industrial settings. All subjects are taught by biomedical/medical engineers and clinical scientists. This allows you to gain the related skills and experience in healthcare science and technology, engineering principles and manufacturing, and management of various industry standard medical devices.

Cutting-edge research feeds directly into teaching and various student projects, ensuring your studies are innovative, current and focused with direct relation to related industries. All academic staff are research active and very enthusiastic, leading to research led/taught core modules with an excellent pass rate.

Learning and assessment

  • Formal and informal lectures
  • Tutorials
  • Laboratory practicals
  • Workshop skills
  • Seminars
  • Group and individually assessed projects

Career support

We aim to produce postgraduates who aspire to challenging careers in industry, the National Health Service (NHS), commerce and the public sector or to developing their own enterprises. You should therefore be able to move directly into responsible roles in employment with a minimum of additional training.

Career prospects

Biomedical Engineering is a growing, increasingly important field, with many significant diagnostic and therapeutic advances pioneered by biomedical engineers. It is highly interdisciplinary in nature and requires engineers who are flexible, able to acquire new skills, and who have a broad knowledge base. In particular, given the research-lead nature of the discipline, there is demand for engineers who can work effectively in a research-lead environment and who can push forward technological boundaries.

Consequently, there is need for people with advanced knowledge and skills, who have a good appreciation of developments in the clinical and biological fields. The MSc in Advanced Biomedical Engineering programme is designed to give you this.

There is a shortage of professionally qualified engineers in both routine clinical and medical research activities in hospitals, industrial research centres and companies that design, maintain, repair and manufacture electronic medical devices and equipment for public and private health services.

Modules

To further develop practical evaluation of professional engineering activity in a chosen specialisation. To extend the student's ability to plan, implement and review appropriate activities in a large and academically demanding project, so as to achieve an agreed set of objectives in a given time scale.
