Biomedical Engineering

Engineers find a solution to a particular problem or to meet a requirement of a tangible product (machinery, equipment, system or process). An engineer designs, builds, operates, examines the product and the behavior under different operating conditions in order to improve and develop it. Problems that need solutions and other complications enable engineers to expand and deepen their knowledge in the field. New engineering disciplines occur in this process. Biomedical Engineering is one of these developing and growing momentums in the last fifty years.

Biomedical Engineering often deals in the areas of biological systems, in particular, organized high-level in a complex system, the components of the structure of the human body, understand the interactions and functional impairment to identify and resolve the necessary tools needed, equipment and system development....

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 well-being of an ageing population. Characterisation and development of novel biomaterials are 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 centred 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.
