If you have ever spent some time in hospital, you are probably unaware that you were the beneficiary of medical devices that have been designed and developed by Medical Engineering Designers. Everything from the bed you lie on to the MRI scanner that shows your insides on a screen, to the blood pressure monitor, to the scalpel that cuts your skin is known as a Medical Device and will have had input from Medical Engineering Designers. Even if you have a blood pressure monitor at home, this is still a medical device and will have been designed by a Medical Engineering Designer. The aim of the MSc in Medical Engineering Design is to convert you into a Medical Engineering Designer so that you can work in this highly regulated design discipline.

The course is run by the School of Medicine (https://www.keele.ac.uk/medicine/) in collaboration with the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine (https://www.keele.ac.uk/istm/).

Teaching takes place at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a dedicated research facility located on the Royal Stoke University Hospital site, and also at the main University Campus. The School of Medicine is one of the top-ranked in the UK, and the research institute has an international reputation for world-leading research (https://www.keele.ac.uk/istm/newsandevents/istmnews2015/istmrefratingsmar2014.php) in medical engineering and healthcare technologies.

The Guy Hilton Research Centre offers state-of-the-art laboratories housing equipment for translational research including newly-developed diagnostic instruments, advanced imaging modalities and additive manufacturing facilities. Its location adjacent to the University Hospital ensures that students experience real-world patient care and the role that technology plays.

This graduate program will give students advanced training in the Life Sciences in fields ranging from Genomics and Bioinformatics to Natural Resource Management. Students will receive hands-on training in their discipline providing with skills preparing them to work in both academia and industry. Our program will take advantage of the new Science Complex that will provide UWinnipeg students with access to innovative technology and laboratories. The program will develop communication skills to facilitate interaction with managers, policy-makers and the public, and students will place the results of their science in the broader context of society at large.

This program meets growing local, national and international demands in both the health and environmental sciences. Winnipeg is the nexus for health sciences research with the development of BioMed City, growing research capacity in the biotechnology industry, and the presence of provincial and federal government health agencies. Interest in the environmental sciences is similarly growing rapidly, and our graduate program will coincide with launch of the Richardson College for the Environment at the University of Winnipeg.

Our Mission

The power of science to change the face of modern society is growing at an ever increasing pace. Science and technology are tools that can and do improve the human condition in many ways. But the rapid pace of change also brings unforeseen consequences and perils. Science and technology cannot develop effectively within a social vacuum. The objective of this program is to train students not only in the advanced methods of science, but to place this body of knowledge in the broader context of modern society. In addition to conducting research in the BioSciences, our graduate students receive advanced training in both the technology and policy dimensions of science providing every student with a skill set that prepares them to work in both academia and industry at an advanced level in every area of biology.

Our Goals

Our educational objectives are four-fold. First, we provide our students with an applied education in the methods of science. Second, we educate our students in the methods of scientific literacy. Third, we educate our students on the relationship between science and the community around us. This will involve the study of science and ethics, and science and the development of public policy. Fourth, we educate our students in the methods of communicating science to policy-makers and the general public. We are training students not only in the basic methods of science, but how in to make a difference in society.
