Course content

This programme is a Master of Engineering degree programme in Biomedical Engineering offered by the School of Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering and the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering.

Who is the ME Biomedical Engineering for?
The ME Biomedical Engineering is designed to allow mathematically strong engineers who hold a primary (Bachelors) degree in Engineering to specialise at Masters level in Biomedical Engineering. It is targeted at engineers who are seeking a professional career in the emerging field of Biomedical Engineering.

What will I learn?
The ME (Biomedical Engineering) degree is a multidisciplinary programme that involves lectures, tutorials, assignments, laboratory work and work placement. A wide range of core and optional modules are available to students to choose from. Alongside core engineering content, Biomedical Engineering modules available to students include:

• Basic Medical Sciences
• Medical Device Design
• Biomaterials
• Cell and Tissue Engineering
• Rehabilitation Engineering
• Neural Engineering
• Research Methods

Students will also have the opportunity to take advanced modules in physiology and anatomy. In addition to the taught content, all students will complete a research or industry placement in their first year and a major research project in their second year.

How will I benefit?
On completing the ME in Biomedical Engineering, you will have a solid grounding in the core areas of Electrical, Electronic and Mechanical Engineering as applied to problems in biomedicine and healthcare. You will have the opportunity to apply the skills developed in an industrial, clinical or research setting and will have completed an independent Biomedical Engineering research project.
The ME (Biomedical Engineering ) is designed for students seeking to obtain a professionally recognised qualification in Biomedical Engineering and is structured to provide an engineering qualification fully compliant with the latest Masters level accreditation requirements of Engineers Ireland (http://www.iei.ie/services/programme-accreditaton/).

What is the programme about?
Biomedical Engineering is the application of the principles of engineering to healthcare and medicine. It is an interdisciplinary field, requiring knowledge of both medicine and engineering. The Master of Engineering (ME) in Biomedical Engineering programme aims to provide graduates with a broad background in biomedical engineering, taking the fundamentals of Electrical, Electronic and Mechanical Engineering developed at undergraduate level and building on these with modern biomedical engineering approaches and applications

Programme Highlights
*The programme is delivered by engineers and clinicians with international reputations in the field and who have all made a significant contribution to the development of their fields.
*There is an emphasis on independent learning and research, with the opportunity to complete a work placement in the medical technologies industry, with a clinical group or with a research laboratory in UCD or abroad.
*As part of the ME students will study Biomedical Engineering subjects such as Rehabilitation Engineering, Neural Engineering, Biomechanics, Cell and Tissue Engineering and Medical Device Design. They will also have the opportunity to choose from a range of modules in physiology and anatomy alongside advanced engineering topics including Advanced Signal Processing and Dynamics.
*The year starts with a two-week, intensive, course in Basic Medical Sciences delivered by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

Where can I go?
Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering Masters degree at UCD will be equipped with the skill set and knowledge, vital for crucial roles in research, design and development in the medical devices and technologies industry or to pursue PhD research in biomedical engineering.
