Course content

Develop your skills, knowledge, and understanding of biomedical engineering and living systems. You will also apply engineering principles and design methods to create new techniques and instruments in medicine and surgery.

Along with studying the principles and technologies of biomedical engineering, you will look at the role of entrepreneurship, business development, and intellectual property exploitation in the biomedical industry.

Under the guidance of our academic staff, you will undertake a research project that will focus on an area of your own particular interest, helping you to develop your presentation, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. Recent projects examples have looked at syringe filling systems for new born injections, and microwave cancer thermal ablation in minimally invasive surgery.
