Course content

The Biomedical Engineering MSc enables you to widen your biomedical engineering knowledge and skills. You develop these to a postgraduate level with the opportunity to undertake in-depth studies through your research projects.

This one year course is intended for honours graduates (or an international equivalent) in mechanical or mechanical-related engineering (eg biomedical, materials or design), maths, physics or a related discipline.

A two year MSc is also available for non-native speakers of English that includes a preliminary year.

The taught part of the course covers major biomedical engineering themes, including:
-Bioengineering
-Manufacturing
-Nanomaterials
-Biomaterials
-Tissue engineering
-BioMEMs and microsystems engineering
-Design for human-systems integration

Your project is chosen from an extensive range of subjects. Project work can range from fundamental studies in areas of basic biomedical engineering science to practical design, make and test investigations.

Recent projects include:
-Investigations of bone cutting
-Assessment of finger splints
-Design of assistive technology
-Testing of artificial shoulder joints
-Design of a rig to flex spinal segments
-Investigation of nanoparticles
-Measuring the material properties of orthopaedic biopolymers

Some research may be undertaken in collaboration with industry.

The course is delivered by the School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering. The School has an established programme of research seminars. These are delivered by guest speakers from academia and industry (both national and international), providing excellent insights into a wide variety of engineering research.

Effective communication is an important skill for the modern professional engineer. This course includes sessions to help develop your ability, both through formal guidance sessions dedicated to good practice in report writing, and through oral/poster presentations of project work.

Delivery

The taught component of the course makes use of a combination of lectures, tutorials/labs and seminars. Assessment is by written examination and submitted in-course assignments.

The research project (worth 60 credits) is undertaken throughout the duration of the Master's course. Project work is assessed by dissertation and oral/poster presentations. You will be allocated, and meet regularly with, project supervisors.

Accreditation

The courses have been accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
