Masters degrees in Biomechanical Engineering offer advanced study of the combinations of principles in mechanics and biological systems, particularly in medical contexts.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering, science or technology subject.
Biomechanical Engineering can be applied to a range of industries, from medicine to agriculture, mechanics to ecosystems. Depending on your interests, you may specialise in various disciplines.
For example, students from a medical background may be interested in the production of artificial limbs, synthetic tissues and organs, neural engineering, and medical isolation.
Technology students might explore wearable technology to monitor health, sport rehabilitation mechanics, or even biofluid engineering and its primacy in aerospace engineering and robotics.
Alternatively, students with a scientific background might explore population modelling and biomass systems for ecosystems analysis, or agricultural engineering.
Careers in this field are highly varied. As well as working in industries mentioned above, your expertise could be applied to public policy, health administration and even legislation within government departments or industrial agencies.
