If you are a therapeutic radiographer or another healthcare professional working within radiotherapy and oncology, this course offers you the opportunity to progress in your specialism. The modules cover a wide range of topics relevant to this area of clinical practice, allowing you to tailor the course to your own career development needs.

Some of the modules you can take are radiotherapy specific, while others take a wider perspective and look at the interdisciplinary nature of approaches in oncology. All modules are designed to support your continuing professional development and the development of skills needed to plan and evidence this.

Opportunities for both independent study and work-based learning are included as part of the course structure. Both allow you to negotiate learning objectives that can be centred on your own area of interest within the workplace.

You may also be eligible to apply for accreditation of work-based projects and prior certificated learning, which will count towards your final award. Please contact us for more information.

If you are a therapeutic radiographer, dosimetrist or other healthcare professional working in radiotherapy and oncology, this course can help you develop your knowledge of radiotherapy planning. It’s a highly focused course that gives you a thorough understanding of the key practices surrounding simulating and evaluating radiation doses for radiotherapy.

You gain an in-depth understanding of current and future radiotherapy planning issues and, crucially, develop the ability to apply critical thinking skills to practice. You gain general critical thinking and literature skills as well as more specific planning theory and plan evaluation skills.

Your studies cover core modules involving fundamental planning theories, plan evaluation, advanced planning and image guided radiotherapy. We also introduce you to research skills, which you use to produce a final dissertation.

The course is delivered using our virtual learning environment, known as Blackboard. You don't need to attend the university and you can study via the web in your own time, which means you can fit the course around your clinical work. The web-based learning materials are designed to help improve your radiotherapy knowledge, as well as share experiences with other students through our e-based discussion forum. If you are not confident with computers, help and support is available.

For some modules there is a requirement to produce a plan for the course and you must have access to a clinical radiotherapy planning environment. This helps support the demands of your postgraduate work.

You may be eligible to apply for accreditation of work-based projects and prior certificated learning, which will count towards your final award.

Combining the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological science, Biomedical engineering improves health care delivery and medical practice by closing the gap between engineering and medicine. Chalmers is world leading in developing bone anchored hearing aids and has highly prominent research in e.g. non-invasive epileptic source localization, microwave tomography and hyperthermia treatment of cancer.

Programme description

With a growing need for improvement in the quality of life and worldwide life expectancy on the rise, there is an increased demand for efficient health care systems in the medical and hospital sector. Together with advancements within IT, a new world of possibilities in how health care can be delivered is evolving.

At Chalmers we are experts in engineering materials, devises and systems that interact with biological systems and in using engineering technologies for advancing human health.

For almost 20 years, Chalmers has been world leading in research and development of bone conduction hearing aids, a technology that has provided hearing for more than 100 000 people. Currently we are also developing the world's first osseo integrated and thought controlled robotic arm.

Other fields of research and product development:

Stroke detection and brain monitoring in neuro intensive care using microwave technology, microwave tomography for 3D breast tumor detection and visualization and microwave hypothermia for treating head and neck cancer.

In collaboration with Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Chalmers is developing a software tool for fast and non-invasive epileptic source localization using EEG, saving the patient of a surgical implantation of intracranial electrodes.

Clothing incorporated textile based sensors that record electrical activity from the heart, brain, or muscles for distance monitoring in homecare settings and eHealth, where healthcare practice is supported by electronic processes and communication.

The future of healthcare will simply require technical expertise, through faculty, projects, guest lectures and a tight collaboration with industry, students at the Master's programme in Biomedical Engineering will be part of a highly prominent research environment.

Educational methods

The overall aim of the programme is to prepare students for a professional career by providing in-depth knowledge in biomedical engineering.

During the first year, the programme provides students with a general interdisciplinary base of medical and biomedical qualified engineering skills. The general skills are then extended in the application oriented specializations in the second year.
