Course content

The M.Sc. 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.
Some of the most exciting work in biomedical engineering
today takes place at the intersection of disciplines where the
biological, physical and digital worlds intersect and have an
impact on the human condition.
Students of the M.Sc. in Bioengineering in Trinity 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. Students of the M.Sc.
in Bioengineering have the opportunity to specialise in one
of three key research themes – neural engineering, tissue
engineering and medical device design.
The M.Sc. in Bioengineering with specialisation in Neural
Engineering aims to provide students with the education
needed to undertake neural engineering in research
and clinical environments. Students receive a focused
education on the key subjects of neural engineering such
as Neural Signal Analysis, Implantable Neural Systems
and Neuroimaging Technologies. Neural engineering has
generated considerable scientific and clinical opportunities,
not only for the development of interfaces between the brain
and computers but also for its mostly untapped potential to
help understand neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s’
Disease or psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.
The M.Sc. 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 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 exciting
multidisciplinary field of research holds significant potential
in the treatment of many diseases and disorders.
