Course Summary

The Masters in Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme that will equip you for employment within the biomedical engineering sector. This programme addresses all the key aspects of biomedical engineering.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Biomedical Engineering is the newest division of the School of Engineering, bringing together our long standing expertise. Research covers four themes, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Bionanotechnology, Rehabilitation Engineering, Biosensors and Diagnostics.
  • The MSc Biomedical Engineering is accredited in the “Further Learning” category accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). This means that a student with an accredited BEng undergraduate degree can take the accredited "Further Learning" MSc to top-up their academic qualifications in order to meet the full academic requirements for conferral of the title of Chartered Engineer. This is an alternative route to the 5-year undergraduate MEng route.
  • The course is based on in-depth modules and individual projects, which are designed to give graduates an opportunity to specialise in specific areas of biomedical engineering or to cover a more general biomedical engineering syllabus.
  • This taught MSc/PgDip offers a wide exposure to the philosophy and practice of biomedical engineering whilst simultaneously enabling students to deepen their knowledge of specific areas of biomedical engineering disciplines, which have been chosen on the basis of the research strengths of the discipline. The choice includes Biomaterials and Biomechanics including their application in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Rehabilitation Engineering applied within Glasgow hospitals, and bioelectronics and diagnostic systems designed to be applied from advanced hospitals to out-in-the-field situations.
  • The compulsory part of the programme provides the basic underlying knowledge needed throughout biomedical engineering. These core courses are taken in both semesters to allow a wide range of optional subjects to be available.
  • The school has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the school’s commitment to supporting women in scientific studies and careers, and to improving the working environment for all.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Career opportunities include positions in rehabilitation engineering, biomaterials for reconstructive surgery, biosensors, device and implant design and development, and biosignal processing.

University information

The University of Glasgow is one of four ancient universities in Scotland, founded back in 1451. The university is part of the prestigious Russell Group, and is one of only two universities in the UK to be awarded a 5 Stars Plus by the QS University Rankings 2017. Alumni include seven Nobel Prize winners, Scotland’s First Minister and a Prime Minister, while Albert Einstein gave a lecture on the theory of relativity there back in 1933. The...more
