This course aims to provide science or engineering graduates from a diversity of backgrounds with a solid grounding in modern bioengineering technologies, together with a strong emphasis in biomechanics and biomaterials. This course will prepare students for a career in an industrial, clinical or research environment, independent learning, and postgraduate research or careers in industry or hospitals.
This course is one of a suite of four closely related bioengineering masters courses that comprise of a common core with the ability to focus on specific aspects of bioengineering.
The course covers material optimisation and engineering of biomedical devices while addressing biological considerations to optimise device performance. Such an approach has a wide application range, incorporating transitory invasive devices to permanent implants for repair, replacement and regenerative treatments. The principles of the course are highly relevant to both the established medical device sector and the emerging regenerative medicine industry.
This multidisciplinary MSc covers practical and theoretical aspect of bioengineering, including: -cell-biomaterial surface interactions -materials characterisation -functionalisation of surface -biomechanics and mathematical modelling
