High school / secondary education (or higher)
good results in two of Maths, Biology, Physics or Chemistry
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each band)
At least 1 reference(s) should be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
This course combines study of materials engineering with human anatomy, physiology and cell biology. You’ll learn about the healthcare applications of materials.
Modules look at repairing the body from disease and injury using medical devices, compatible materials and tissue biology approaches. You’ll learn how to choose the best material for uses within the body, in the context of applications in both research and industry.
In the first year, you’ll take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you’ll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It’s designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
In the third year, rather than the usual five-month placement, you’ll complete additional individual and group research and design projects.
