MSc. in Bioengineering

Trinity College Dublin

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.

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. The Trinity Centre for Bioengineering has extensive clinical research in all the five teaching hospitals. As a member of this biomedical community, you would have the opportunity to learn from activities in the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, and relate your course material to the real clinical challenges that are being researched and the solutions being generated. The Centre has over 20 academics from the School of Engineering, School of Medicine, Dental School, School of Natural Sciences and over 100 PhD and MSc researchers.

Our graduates often pursue further research to solve current problems in healthcare in both academic and industry environments. Our graduate bioengineers work in the design and manufacture of medical devices with market leading companies. Recent Graduates are currently working in Medtronic, Bristol-Myers Squib, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson, Schivo Group, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Stryker and in public authorities on the regulatory practice of medical devices. Many pursue further research in Ireland and in world class universities such as Stanford and Harvard as well as in hospital and clinical environments.

The M.Sc. in Bioengineering has received awards from Engineers Ireland (Excellence in Education Award) and Postgrad Ireland (Best Engineering Programme, 2012; Runner-Up, 2016). These awards were in recognition of the scale and diversity of the programme in terms of the student experience, its contribution to biomedical engineering and making an impact on global healthcare challenges.

The programme consists of three streams. All streams lead to the award of the MSc in Bioengineering and consist of compulsory core modules and optional modules:

  1. MSc Bioengineering General Stream
  2. MSc Bioengineering with specialisation in Tissue Engineering
  3. MSc Bioengineering with specialisation in Medical Device Design

M.Sc. Bioengineering General Stream The MSc in Bioengineering General Stream programme aims to provide a sound and broad basis in bioengineering. In particular, we aim to provide engineers and scientists with the education needed to practice bioengineering in the medical devices industry.

M.Sc. Bioengineering with specialisation in Tissue Engineering 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.

M.Sc. Bioengineering with specialisation in Medical Device Design 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 M.Sc. in Bioengineering is the only course of its kind in Ireland, the received two awards recognising the scale and diversity of the course and what it delivers in terms of the student experience, its contribution to the Irish economy and making an impact on global healthcare challenges.
