MSc/P.Grad.Dip. in Bioengineering

The MSc in Bioengineering provides education and training to the next generation of biomedical engineers. Bioengineering is defined as the application of the principles of engineering to advancements in healthcare and medicine. Some of the most exciting work in biomedical engineering today takes place at the intersection of disciplines where the biological, physical and digital worlds intersect and have an impact on the human condition.

Students of the MSc in Bioengineering in Trinity College Dublin take lectures from experts in a variety of biomedical engineering subjects and carry out research in world class, state of the art research laboratories and facilities.

Students of the MSc in Bioengineering have the opportunity to specialise in one of three key research themes - neural engineering, tissue engineering and medical device design.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Neural Engineering aims to provide students with the education needed to undertake neural engineering in research and clinical environments. Students receive a focused education on the key subjects of neural engineering such as Neural Signal Analysis, Implantable Neural Systems and Neuroimaging Technologies. Neural engineering has generated considerable scientific and clinical opportunities, not only for the development of interfaces between the brain and computers but also for its mostly untapped potential to help understand neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s’ Disease or psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Medical Device Design is designed to bring together clinicians, researchers and the medical device industry to produce new solutions for clinical needs. The field of medical device research is a fast moving area which can offer students a rewarding career in the global medical device market. Students will gain a specific education of the key topics in medical device design process and a knowledge of medical device regulation.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Tissue Engineering provides students with an understanding of stem cells, animal/human cell culture processes, and strategies to regenerate or repair damaged tissues. This exiting multidisciplinary field of research holds significant potential in the treatment of many diseases and disorders.

Admission Requirements

Applicants will be required to hold at least an upper second class honors degree in engineering, biomedical technology, or a cognate discipline. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and short-listed candidates will be invited for interview on a rolling basis.
