Masters Research Project

The project provides MSc students with the opportunity to experience the
challenges and rewards of independent study in a topic of their own choice; the project may involve an extended literature review, experimental and/or
computational work.

Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation

The dissertation is likely to take the form of an extended literature review. Your project work will have been supported by a compulsory research methods module and specialist knowledge classes throughout the year designed to assist with technical aspects of methodology and analysis.

Learning & teaching

Classes are organised in lectures, laboratory demonstrations, practical exercises and hands-on experience with industrial software on real biofluid mechanics problems. In addition to the classes, you'll benefit from invited academic and industrial speakers, departmental seminars and knowledge exchange events.

Assessment

Assessment methods include exams, coursework and the research project/thesis.

Careers

Graduates will be highly employable in the following markets and related sectors/companies, among others:

  •    Medical Devices
  •    Simulation and Analysis Software
  •    Academic Research
  •    Biosimulation market
  •    NHS and the Healthcare/Medical Simulation
  •    Life Science Research Tools and Reagents

Key providers have been identified in each of the above markets. Creating links with the relevant industry and monitoring the market and employability trends will enable us to tailor the course content appropriately, and to enhance graduates’ employability.

Research opportunities

Biofluid mechanics applies engineering, mathematical and physical principles of fluids to solve complex and multifaceted problems primarily in biology and medicine, but also in aerospace and robotics.

Our new MRes course covers a wide range of multidisciplinary training on the kinematics and dynamics of fluids related to biological systems, medical science, cardiovascular devices, numerical modelling and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), focusing on research. The MRes differs from an MSc in that you'll have the opportunity to perform multidisciplinary research for a longer time, preparing you for a research career and equipping you with world-class research knowledge.

The course is taught by the Department of Biomedical Engineering, with input from other departments across the faculty and the University.

During the course, you'll be supported by a strong team of academics with worldwide connections and you'll be offered a unique training and innovative teaching and learning environment.

What you'll study

This one-year programme consists of compulsory and optional classes in the first two semesters. Each class has timetabled contact hours, delivered mainly in lectures, laboratories and tutorials. The MRes research project will be chosen and started in semester one with guidance from a supervisor. Throughout the year you'll be working on your project.

Compulsory classes

  • Professional Studies in Biomedical Engineering
  • Research Methodology
  • MRes project

Elective classes

  • Biofluid Mechanics
  • Industrial Software
  • Medical Science for Engineering
  • Haemodynamics for Engineers
  • Numerical Modelling in Biomedical Engineering
  • Cardiovascular Devices
  • The Medical Device Regulatory Process
  • Entrepreneurship & Commercialisation in Biomedical Engineering
  • Introduction to Biomechanics
  • Finite Element Methods for Boundary Value Problems and Approximation
  • Mathematical Biology & Marine Population Modelling
  • Design Management
  • Risk Management

Support & development

The new MRes course aims to train students in the Biofluid Mechanics field, targeting primarily the academic research market, but also the Medical Devices and Simulation/Analysis software industries and other related and new emerging markets.

Our postgraduates will benefit from acquiring world-class training and competitive skills in both biomedical and fluid dynamics disciplines that will make them highly employable at the following markets and related sectors/companies:

  • academic research
  • medical device market
  • simulation & analysis software market
  • biosimulation market
  • NHS & the healthcare/medical simulation market
  • life science research tools & reagents market

We've identified the current key vendors in each of the above markets and aim to create links with the relevant industry and monitor the changing market and employability trends, in order to adjust teaching modules and approaches and to enhance employability of our graduates.

Demand for aerospace engineering graduates is rising, both in the UK and overseas. In fact, the UK aerospace industry is the second biggest in the world after the USA, and it’s home to some of the world’s leading aerospace companies such as Airbus, Astrium, BAE Systems, GKN and Rolls-Royce.

Taught by expert academics in a leading research environment, this programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills to succeed in an exciting and challenging sector. You’ll study aerospace structures and structural analysis, along with optional, specialist modules in areas such as aerodynamics and computational fluid dynamics, aircraft design, systems and optimisation methods, rotary wing aircraft and propulsion.

Our Aerospace Engineering Industrial Advisory Board is actively engaged in ensuring this course meets the needs of industry and reflects trends in the sector. It also provides industrial talks and seminars and advice and support to our students during their professional projects.

In addition to our advanced CAD facilities for design work, we have the latest industry-standard software for computational fluid dynamics and finite element modelling of material stress analysis, programming and structural and multidisciplinary optimisation.

Accreditation

We are currently seeking accreditation from the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

This course, which is accredited by Royal Aeronautical Society, provides a strategic overview of aerospace engineering and management issues. It will help you to develop a wider perspective and understanding of the challenges facing the aerospace engineering industry, and includes subjects such as entrepreneurship, business, finance, research techniques and green environmental issues.

What will you study?

You will gain a broad understanding of the practical requirements of aerospace engineering, as well as an in-depth knowledge of aerospace stress analysis and advanced materials, alongside computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for aerospace applications. Complementary subjects covered include computer-integrated product development, advanced CAD/CAM plus green engineering and energy efficiency. In addition, the Engineering Research Techniques, Entrepreneurship and Quality Management module will develop your business and management skills. The Aerospace Group Design Project module provides you with the experience of working in a multidisciplinary team within an engineering organisation – with real industrial constraints. You'll get the chance to apply the theory you've learnt to real-world contexts and evaluate methodologies, whilst developing your critical thinking and creativity.
As well as the professional, analytical and management skills necessary for employment, the course will provide you with the transferable skills required in the workplace, such as communication, IT, teamwork, planning, decision making, independent learning ability and problem solving.

Assessment

Work placement scheme

Kingston University has set up a scheme that allows postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing to include a work placement element in their course starting from September 2017. The placement scheme is available for both international and home/EU students.
-The work placement, up to 12 months; is optional.
-The work placement takes place after postgraduate students have successfully completed the taught portion of their degree.
-The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student. We cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it.
-As the work placement is an assessed part of the course for international students, this is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.
