Our biomedical engineering department offers a postgraduate degree programme that combines engineering, medicine and life and physical sciences.
The department is an international centre of excellence in postgraduate teaching and research.
Postgraduate education and research is directed at the application of the methods and ideas of engineering and the physical and biological sciences in medicine and surgery.
We have a particular emphasis on clinically-related research which ranges from basic investigations to direct clinical applications.
Much of our research is based on active collaboration with clinical units, academic departments and industry in Glasgow along with other areas of the UK and overseas.
As a student here, you'll play a vital role in the development of innovative research, enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and have the opportunity to network with industrialists, academic experts and clinical collaborators.
Visits to local clinical centres along with lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas are a key part of our courses. You'll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical experts to help advise and further your career.
Our postgraduate education includes research degrees that can be studied over one year (MPhil, MRes), three years (PhD) or four years (EngD). Our external research is supported by funding from Research Councils, the Scottish Government, charities, commerce and industry within the UK, EU and internationally in countries such as the US and Japan.
You can study a degree in biomedical engineering within any of our three major research areas:
