Summary Biomedical engineers work at the interface of engineering, biology, and medicine, combining their engineering expertise with an understanding of human biology and medical needs to make the world a healthier place. This masters course will equip students with the specialist knowledge, expertise and skills to integrate biology and medicine with engineering to solve problems related to living systems.
The MSc Biomedical Engineering is designed for engineering, and physical science graduates who want to specialise in this vibrant area of engineering. There is high demand for biomedical engineers, and this masters has been developed with our graduates’ employability in mind.
During this course, students will learn the fundamental scientific and technical aspects of biomedical engineering, alongside developing your knowledge of the relevant aspects of human biology in health and disease. This interdisciplinary course draws on expertise from leading departments within the University of Southampton, brought together through the Institute for Life Sciences; Engineering and the Environment,Medicine, Health Sciences, Natural and Environmental Sciences, and Electronics and Computer Science.
Compulsory modules: Human Biology and Systems Physiology, Introduction to Biomedical Engineering, Translational Medicine, MSc Research Project
Optional modules: a wide variety of optional modules are available. If you choose to, you will be able to specialise in your chosen area of biomedical engineering through themed areas of application: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, imaging, diagnostic systems and audiology.
