BMedSc in Biomedical Materials Science

University of Birmingham - College of Medical and Dental Sciences
Campus Full time 3 years September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham

This degree offers you the opportunity to gain a comprehensive background in the medical science and engineering of materials for repairing or replacing damaged, diseased or missing tissues in the human body. [+]

Best Bachelor Degrees in Biomedical Science in Europe 2017. Artificial hip and knee joints, replacement blood vessels and heart valves, artificial teeth and fillings, contact lenses, modern drug delivery systems and tissue engineering are just a few of the growing number of applications of biomedical materials. This degree offers you the opportunity to gain a comprehensive background in the medical science and engineering of materials for repairing or replacing damaged, diseased or missing tissues in the human body. The Biomedical Materials Science course is one of the few courses focussing equally on the biological and material sciences and our graduates therefore find career opportunities in a wide range of areas related to medical and dental sciences. “As long as humans cannot replace lost tissue like a salamander, the development of biomaterials and biomaterials based tissue engineering scaffolds will be crucial for the wellbeing of an ageing population. Characterisation and development of novel biomaterials is what the Biomedical Materials Science course is about.” Dr Mike Hofmann, Biomaterials Researcher Also referred to as 'The Biomaterials Course', the programme is multidisciplinary and taught in several departments, including Dentistry, Medicine, and Metallurgy and Materials. The course is centered around the Biomaterials Unit one of the principal research units within the School of Dentistry which links clinical work with both clinical and scientific research. Our state of the art laboratories are based at the brand new Dental Hospital. First year You will study the structure and properties of materials – including polymers, ceramics and metals – anatomy, physiology, introduction to cell and molecular biology and bacteriology, alongside biomechanics and a general introduction to the development and clinical use of biomaterials. The first year also includes a study skills course providing you with a basic working knowledge of the use of search engines, IT and statistics. Wherever possible, lecture material is reinforced with practical classes. After the examination period in the summer you will visit local hospitals where you will observe, for example, a hip or knee replacement operation being performed. Second year In this year you focus on the reactions of the body to biomaterials, how these materials are designed and made into components to be used in medical application. You will also learn about the factors that affect performance of biomaterials in service. Modules cover cell and molecular biology, orthopaedic and dental biomaterials, microscopy, infection and immunology and materials design. Practical sessions will give you further experience of handling and testing biomaterials. Third year Your final year gives you the opportunity to get involved in state of the art ongoing research within your extensive two-semester final year research project. You will learn more about tissue engineering and biomaterial design, develop your laboratory and project management skills and deepen your scientific knowledge. You will ultimately present your research project as a dissertation accompanied by a poster, both of which draw on your scientific writing and presentation skills acquired in the first and second year. Your work may ultimately be published in a scientific journal. Why study this course Hospital location: You will be based in the new Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry,the only course of its kind to be based in a Hospital. This means there will be the direct input by clinicians into the course content therefore ensuring the clinical relevance of our teaching. Equal emphasis on material and biological sciences: Taught across several departments including Dentistry, Medicine and Metallurgy and Materials, this truly multidisciplinary course is one of the few courses in the UK that covers both materials and biological science equally, meaning you will develop a broad knowledge base in both areas. This will allow you to choose from a wider variety of career options in the field of biomaterials once you graduate. Orthopaedic Biomaterials focus: As an area of medicine relevant to an increasingly aging population, orthopaedic biomaterials is an important focus of your study at Birmingham. From hip replacements to tissue engineering, you will learn about how artificial materials are enabling to replace diseased joints and bones through a growing number of biomaterial applications. Small year groups: You will enjoy the close-knit community atmosphere created by our small year group and therefore quickly settle into University life, easily make friends with your course mates and build strong working relationships with teaching and support staff. Final year research project opportunities: In the third year of the course you will undertake a research project of your choice. This will take place in our state of the art research laboratories working alongside postgraduate PhD students and staff. Guaranteed interviews for Dentistry: For the top students in their year who want to pursue a career in Dentistry after graduation we guarantee interview places for studying Dentistry at the University of Birmingham. Entry requirements Number of A levels required: 3 Typical offer: AAB Required subjects and grades: Two sciences required at A-level, one of which has to be Biology or Chemistry. General Studies: Not accepted, but a good performance may be taken into account if you fail to meet the conditions of the offer Additional information: BTEC Extended Diploma in Science related subject accepted when offered in addition to an AS Level in a Science, at grade C, or good GCSEs (grade Bs).

You will have the opportunity to study across disciplines related to health, engineering and sports, and will work with the latest technological developments related to medical instrumentation, engineering and material design solutions. About the course The Foundation Year is the first year of the course and offers a transitional period of study for those students who do not have the necessary qualifications for direct entry on to the main engineering degree courses. The foundation year is an integral part of many of our four-year engineering-based courses; it will provide you with an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of science and mathematics and prepare you for degree level study. During your foundation year you will study the key engineering subjects, including Foundation Mathematics, Foundation Mechanics, Electrical & Electronic Principles, Thermal & Environmental Studies, Engineering Principles and Engineering Systems & Investigations. International students will have the option to study the English language. In addition to learning about the theories and principles of engineering, you will have the opportunity to develop valuable practical and investigative experience in our specialist engineering laboratories. During your BEng (Hons) studies you will gain an advanced understanding of engineering design, medical equipment technology and biological systems. The course will be delivered through a mixture of practical laboratories, computer simulation sessions, group activities and demonstrations supported by lectures. Assessment is a mixture of coursework, practical tests and examinations. The course is delivered via a cross-departmental partnership between the departments of engineering, materials, biology and sports. The University of Bolton has a strong pedigree in these areas, and the sports department has recently undertaken a significant expansion, culminating in the opening of the new £31m Bolton One building. The University has recently embarked on an ambitious enhancement agenda as a “Teaching Intensive and Research Informed” University. To this end, ten new lecturers, with expertise in a variety of engineering and scientific disciplines, have been recruited by the Engineering, Sports and Sciences academic group at the University.
