Masters degrees in Bioelectronics & Bioelectricity offer advanced study of the electrical phenomena within living systems.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate engineering, science or technology discipline.
From organisms to ecosystems, Bioelectronics & Bioelectricity can provide insight into the processes which govern living creatures, and how technology can effectively combine with them.
For example, biomedical engineering has increased the development of biosensors such as immunosensors for detecting diseases, and e-sensors for creating prosthetic limbs. It has also created DNA chips for detecting DNA, RNA and diseases.
Nanotechnology continues to improve the analytical performance and robustness of everyday and industrial devices, from mobile phones to surgical equipment. The introduction of biological fuel cells has improved our water systems and continues to have positive impacts on the environment.
Expertise from these Masters can be applied to a range of fields. From medicine, biomedical research and drug discovery, to the environment, food-processing industries, security and defence.
