Course content

The Biomedical Engineering MSc enables you to widen your biomedical engineering knowledge and skills. You develop these to a postgraduate level with the opportunity to undertake in-depth studies through your research projects.

This one year course is intended for honours graduates (or an international equivalent) in mechanical or mechanical-related engineering (eg biomedical, materials or design), maths, physics or a related discipline.

A two year MSc is also available for non-native speakers of English that includes a preliminary year.

The taught part of the course covers major biomedical engineering themes, including:

  • bioengineering
  • manufacturing
  • nanomaterials
  • biomaterials
  • tissue engineering
  • bioMEMs and microsystems engineering
  • design for human-systems integration

Your project is chosen from an extensive range of subjects. Project work can range from fundamental studies in areas of basic biomedical engineering science to practical design, make and test investigations.

Some research may be undertaken in collaboration with industry.
