Course Summary

Why choose this course

When biology and engineering meet, incredible things happen. People regain their strength and independence, rediscover life, and challenge what we once believed was impossible.

What you will study

Our MSc Biomedical Engineering will equip you with the expertise to help solve biomedical problems faced by the world today.

Your first semester will explore core topics in engineering, biology and research practice. In the second semester, you’ll delve into specialist modules on human movement analysis, prostheses, implants, physiological measurements, rehabilitation and computer methods. Your research project will be carried out across both semesters and the summer period.

You’ll learn through lectures and tutorials, visits to hospitals and industry, computer workshops and laboratory work, and you’ll be taught by lecturers who are at the forefront of their field, as well as forward-thinking industry experts.

Our MSc Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.

Start date



This module outlines the elements of human biology requisite for the understanding of biomedical engineering. Upon being introduced to fundamental concepts, student is asked to conduct a mini-research study in which a real-life bio-engineering application (e.g. artificial heart valves) is analysed and discussed from the perspective of human biology. Extensive literature review beyond lecture material is expected from the student in order to complete the project.
