When biology and engineering meet, incredible things happen. People regain their strength and independence, rediscover life, and challenge what we once believed was impossible.

Running continuously for more than 50 years, our MSc in Biomedical Engineering is one of the longest-established in the world. You’ll benefit from access to experts of international acclaim and teaching in advanced facilities, including our new £12m Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory.

What you will study

Our MSc in Biomedical Engineering will equip you with a breadth of expertise with a focus on solving real-world, biomedical problems.

The first semester incorporates modules covering core topics in engineering, biology and research practice. In the second semester, you will delve into specialist modules on human movement analysis, prostheses, implants, physiological measurements, rehabilitation, and computer methods applied across the discipline. Your research project will be carried out across both semesters and the summer period.

This course uses a blend of teaching methods, including lectures and tutorials, visits to hospitals and industry, computer workshops, and laboratory work. You will be taught by lecturers who are at the forefront of their field, as well as forward-thinking industry experts. 

Our MSc in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.

Professional recognition

Teaching structure 

Our course is made up from eight taught modules worth 15 credits each. You will also carry out a Research Project which is worth 60 credits. At this moment in time, we do not offer optional modules and all are compulsory. 

In Semester 1, one day a week is assigned to each of the modules you’ll be taught. However, your Semester 2 modules will cover more specific, specialist topics in biomedical engineering. You can expect these to be taught over an intensive two-week period. 

All the taught modules have a continual assessment component which carries 40 per cent of the final mark. These take the form of essay-type coursework assignments or mini projects. You will also carry out a Research Project module which begins in Semester 1 and progresses through Semester 2 and the summer period.
