Applications now being accepted for October 2012 entry

Biomedical Engineering is an exciting and rapidly expanding discipline that endeavours to apply engineering principles to challenges faced in biology, life sciences and medicine. It is interdisciplinary by nature and at Imperial College London encompasses a number of diverse areas of research. Such research has lead to novel and varied scientific breakthroughs such as the development of the first brain controlled wheelchair able to operate in a building environment, novel tools to measure and analyse the mechanics of rowing that now form part of the standard training for British Olympic rowers and a tissue perfusion sensor for intelligent wound dressing.
We are currently accepting applications for our MSc in Biomedical Engineering for entry in October 2012. We deliver sound training in this highly interdisciplinary subject and include core modules such as systems physiology, statistics and data analysis, physiological monitoring, biomedical imaging, and modelling in biology.

You can select your own area of specialisation by taking one of our four streams:

• Medical Physics stream - you can tailor your course to include modules such as advanced medical imaging, radiotherapy and radiobiology, nuclear medicine, image processing or computational neuroscience.
• Biomechanics stream- choosing from modules covering biomechanics, biomaterials and tissue engineering, neuromuscular control or micro-systems and nanotechnology.
• Neurotechnology stream - modules include computational neuroscience, brain machine interfacing, and advanced biological modelling.
• Biomaterials stream - offered jointly with the Department of Materials. Modules cover the development of materials for new applications, the response of cells and the design of scaffolds for tissue engineering, which invloves tailoring materials so that they guide stem cells to produce new tissue.

You will also complete a research project where you can apply your knowledge of bioengineering to solve problems of biological or medical significance. These projects are many and varied in nature allowing you to actively pursue your particular area of interest.

The Medical Physics and Biomechanics streams are accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.

Why study Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London?
Our MSc course is well established, having first been offered in 1991. Changes are made to the syllabus on a continuing basis to take new developments in the field into account. Both the medical physics and biomechanics streams are IPEM accredited.
Our graduates have gone on to work in a wide range of professions including hospital based engineering, work in medical device companies, or to carry out further research by undertaking a PhD. Imperial College London was ranked 5th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2009. The Department of Bioengineering achieved excellent results in both the 2001 and 2008 Research Assessment Exercises, confirming our position as the leading Department of Bioengineering in the UK.

Application deadline: 31 July 2012.
