Our Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering first began in 1991 and provides all of the necessary technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills to succeed in one of the fastest growing engineering disciplines.

This degree offers four distinct steams, each of which accredited and employment-focused:

  • Biomechanics pathway – this stream is focused on the bioengineering problems related to major diseases associated with an ageing population
  • Biomaterials pathway – this stream is jointly offered with the Department of Materials and covers the use of biomaterials in medical and surgical environments
  • Medical Physics pathway – this stream trains graduates in the physical understanding required for healthcare and medical research, with focus on human physiology, radiotherapy and clinical imaging
  • Neurotechnology pathway – this stream focuses on new technology for investigating brain function, such as developing neuroprosthetic devices and new neuroimaging techniques

You choose your stream during the application process and all four streams lead to the award of MSc Biomedical Engineering.


Our career-focused degrees ensure graduates are well-placed to gain employment in a growing industry. The global population is ageing which increases demand for biomedical engineers to create new medical devices.

There are many areas of employment open to you as a graduate of this course, and previous graduates have gone on to pursue careers in healthcare, the medical device industry, research, medicine, start-ups, teaching, consultancy and finance.
