Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. Additionally, a sound understanding of programme relevant core engineering principles, such as mathematics, is expected and must be demonstrated in a 2.1 or equivalent in core subject components from your Honours degree.
International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
Months of entry
The Masters in Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme that will equip you for employment within the biomedical engineering sector. This programme addresses all the key aspects of biomedical engineering.
- The University of Glasgow’s School of Engineering has been delivering engineering education and research for more than 150 years and is the oldest School of Engineering in the UK.
- Biomedical Engineering is the newest division of the School, bringing together our long standing expertise. Research covers four themes, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Bionanotechnology, Rehabilitation Engineering, Biosensors and Diagnostics.
- The course is based on in-depth modules and individual projects, which are designed to give graduates an opportunity to specialise in specific areas of Biomedical Engineering or to cover a more general Biomedical Engineering syllabus.
- This taught MSc/PG Dip offers a wide exposure to the philosophy and practice of Biomedical Engineering whilst simultaneously enabling the students to deepen their knowledge of specific areas of biomedical engineering disciplines, which have been chosen on the basis of the research strengths of the Discipline. The choice includes Biomaterials and Biomechanics including their application in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Rehabilitation Engineering includes applied within Glasgow hospital and bioelectronics and diagnostic systems, designed to be applied from advanced hospitals to out-in-the-field situations.
- The compulsory part provides the basic underlying knowledge need throughout biomedical engineering these core courses are taken in both semesters to allow a wide range of optional subjects to be available.
- You will broaden and/or deepen your knowledge of biomedical engineering disciplines.
