Masters degrees in Biosensors equip postgraduates with the skills to design and develop devices that detect, record and transmit information about the body. This includes tracking physiological change in the body, and the presence of chemical or biological materials.
Courses range from taught MSc and Meng (Master of Engineering) degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate science, engineering or technology subject.
Biosensors help medical professionals to understand the basic structure and function of different biological processes within the human body, particularly molecular structures such as DNA and RNA, cells, and their roles within biological systems.
They also enable experts to explore the effectiveness of processes such as tissue engineering, including synthetic tissues and prosthetics, and how compatible they are with organic functions.
Biosensor techniques include waves and diffraction such as radiation, and digital signal processing methods. You will also explore nanofabrication methods (the design and manufacture of devices with dimensions measured in nanometers).
Expertise from this field may be applied to a range of medical and biomedical careers, from radiology and midwifery, through to drug design biotechnology manufacturing.
