Normally an Honours degree (typically 2.2 or above, or equivalent) in an engineering or related discipline, but less well-qualified applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered.
Months of entry
We want our students to make important discoveries in the world of biomedical engineering. This MSc will help you develop the skills to break down complex problems and develop the solutions needed by patients and industry.
We cover every step in designing a medical device from concept design and material selection, through analysis and optimisation, to regulatory approval.
We have first-hand practical experience of medical device development and we will mentor you as you develop your own ideas. Gain valuable experience of working with either the NHS or other relevant employers as we have built strong partnerships to drive innovation and excellence.
Access up-to-the-minute biomaterials, biomechanics and physiological measurement testing equipment as well as scanning technology including CT, ultrasound and laser.
The University has taken the unusual step of becoming ISO accredited, which means our work reaches industry standards. We commit to making important breakthroughs. Our development of a speech valve, called a tracheoesophageal fistula, illustrates this. This is used to restore speech in patients who have had a laryngectomy, normally as a result of throat cancer.
Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM); this programme meets, in part, the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc and BEng (Hons) graduates satisfy the educational base for CEng registration.
