MSc in Biomedical Engineering
The MSc is a modular conversion course which provides broad training in biomedical engineering to help you progress with a career in research, industry or in the NHS.
We bring together engineering, medicine and the life and physical sciences to enable the development of relevant clinical and industrial research.
The programme explores advances in technology and engineering to generate applications and solutions to clinically relevant problems.
As part of the course you’ll go on visits to local clinical centres and attend lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical partners to help advise and further your career.
The first and second semesters consist of taught classes, laboratory demonstrations, practical exercises and clinical visits.
Following this, Diploma students complete a project dissertation and MSc students complete a research or development project reported by a thesis.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering was formed in 2012 following the merger of the Bioengineering Unit and the National Centre for Prosthetics & Orthotics.
The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). An IPEM-accredited MSc is normally required for those wishing to pursue careers as Clinical Scientists in the National Health Service.
