MSc Biomedical Engineering

MSc Biomedical Engineering

This if for you if... you are excited by the challenges of matching solutions and technologies to problems in healthcare and medicine, whether in a clinical environment or in the home.

Course Description

Biomedical engineering is a scientific discipline that advances knowledge in chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through multidisciplinary research that integrates the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Over the last few years there has been a major shift in both Europe and the United States, away from traditional schemes of health care towards health care systems which are much more dependent on technology. This is true in terms of diagnosis, treatment and health care system integration.

The skills and training you gain on this course will allow you to apply engineering principles and materials technology to healthcare. You will study the design and manufacture of medical equipment, including the principles of business and management which apply to the biomedical sector. In particular, you will learn about the issues and challenges surrounding the production and use of nanomaterials in biomedicine and medical devices, both now and in the future. We will also examine the ethical principles that underpin medical engineering, regulatory issues and governance.
