Course content

We want our students to make important discoveries in the world of biomedical engineering. This MSc will help you develop the skills to break down complex problems and develop the solutions needed by patients and wanted by industry.

We cover every step in the process of designing a medical device from concept design and material selection, through analysis and optimisation, to regulatory approval.

We have first hand practical experience of medical device development and we will mentor you as you develop your own ideas. You will gain valuable experience of working with either the NHS or with other relevant industries as we have built strong partnerships to drive forward innovation and excellence.

You will have access to up-to-the minute biomaterials, biomechanics and physiological measurement testing equipment as well as scanning technology including CT, ultrasound and laser.

The University has taken the unusual step of becoming ISO accredited, which means our work reaches industry standards. We are committed to making important breakthroughs. This is evidenced in our development of a speech valve, called a tracheoesophageal fistula, which is used to restore speech in patients who have had a laryngectomy, normally as a result of throat cancer.

Study information

We take a broad approach to teaching. You will attend lectures by speakers from industry, hospitals and leading medical researchers. Seminars will also be led by professionals from a variety of medical and engineering backgrounds, as well as academics. The course is flexible and we make sure that teaching is delivered in a way that is appropriate to your development. We offer a variety of modules, listed below. Your major project to develop a medical device is undertaken in collaboration with industry, a local hospital or a research group.

We will teach you how to take a systematic approach to developing logical and practical strategies, so that you can make your complex ideas become reality. This MSc has been designed to help you to seek sustainable solutions, to be risk and value conscious as well as being aware of the wider professional, social, cultural, environmental and health and safety responsibilities.

Topics covered :

  • anatomy and physiology
  • product innovation and support technology
  • biomaterials
  • finite element analysis
  • human locomotive systems
  • orthopaedic devices
  • medical imaging and analysis
  • cardiovascular devices
  • regulatory requirements and device certification
  • major biomedical engineering or medical device project

* All modules are subject to availability.

Future prospects

This MSc course has been designed with employability in mind. Students who successfully complete it go on to work for medical device companies, in industry or academia. There are also employment opportunities to work for regulatory bodies and consultancy companies.

During your studies, you will regularly come into contact with professionals working in the sphere of biomedical engineering and there will be opportunities to enhance your CV by undertaking placements.

You will learn vital professional skllls such as the ability to communicate effectively with colleagues, customers, and the public. You will also gain experience in leading, chairing and participating in meetings, presentations and discussions, as well as opportunities for you to present proposals, negotiate agreements and resolve conflicts.
