Course content

This MSc has a focus on biomedical engineering fundamentals to healthcare practice, ranging from biomedical engineering, to embedded electronic systems, to machine learning. Using open-source tools for biosensing and neuroscience, you will work in a creative space with the aim of making brain-computer interfacing and other biosensors more accessible for rapid prototyping and quicker delivery of products in the consumer landscape.

On completion of this masters you'll have an advanced understanding of:

– how to analyse and formulate a wide range of biomedical problems using signal processing, embedded electronic systems, and machine learning.

– how to design, create and integrate software and hardware components of modern biomedical engineering systems and computer-controlled equipment

– the processes involved in constructing, analysing and solving biomedical problems into healthcare solutions

– the healthcare context in which engineering is practiced, as well as the effects of engineering projects on society

  • You will have the opportunity to gain advanced, research-specific skills and academic knowledge to take forward into further study or into your career.
  • You will become part of a dynamic research environment where you will acquire industrially relevant knowledge to make a successful contribution to tomorrow’s systems that support everyday life.
