Biomedical engineering is one of the most important growth areas in the engineering sector in the first half of the twenty-first century. Internationally, the rise in demand for biomedical engineers is, and will remain, greater than in any other engineering discipline.
Our MSc is an advanced programme covering a wide base of topics, which will provide you with an in-depth introduction to the field of biomedical engineering. It acts as an extension for graduates from a range of disciplines who wish to add to their knowledge and skills. It provides a foundation for a future career in clinical engineering, the medical industry, healthcare science and research.
You will benefit from a thorough taught knowledge base, covering areas such as biomaterials, biomechanics, gait analysis, human biology, instrumentation, micro engineering, physiological measurement, professional topics, rehabilitation engineering and safety.
The programme has been running for nearly 50 years, making it one of the longest established biomedical engineering degree programmes in the world. It was highlighted for the award of an ‘Excellent’ grade in the UK Teaching Quality Assessment scheme and is highly commended by our external examiners for the breadth and depth of material taught. Individual modules can also be studied as part of a personal continuing professional development (CPD) programme.
