This MSc course provides engineers and physical scientists with knowledge and understanding of the medical devices used in diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The course is delivered by staff of the EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Devices and Health Technologies (CDT), with colleagues from Engineering, the Life Sciences and Physical Sciences. There’s also input from clinical advisers from the NHS and elsewhere.
The training programme equips you with the basic knowledge and terminology in current life science subjects to allow you to explore topics in your own research project with direction from your supervisor.
You'll gain practical experience in the life science techniques and an appreciation of interdisciplinary project work.
This credit-based modular degree comprises assessed instructional classes and project work.
You’ll also undertake a research project. You’ll choose from a list of relevant industrial or clinical projects, and submit a thesis.
