Biomedical Engineering is a field of engineering that relies on highly inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches to research and development, in order to address biological and medical problems. Specialists in this area are trained to face scientific and technological challenges that significantly differ from those related to more traditional branches of engineering. Biomedical Engineering makes use of more traditional engineering methodologies and techniques, which are adapted and further developed to meet specifications of biomedical applications.

This MSc programme covers the following topics:

  • Fundamentals of human physiology;
  • Ethics and regulatory affairs in the biomedical field;
  • Advanced aspects of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and biomaterials;
  • Advanced techniques to synthesize and/or characterise materials for biomedical engineering;
  • Mechanics of tissues, cells and sub-cellular components;
  • Biocompatibility of implantable materials and devices;
  • Materials and techniques for nanotechnology and nanomedicine.Applications are welcome from students with a background in physical sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Materials Science) or Engineering.

The programme has strong roots within the well-recognised expertise of the academics that deliver the lectures, who have international standing in cutting-edge research on Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering. This fact ensures that the programme is delivered with the highest standards in the field. The students also benefit from access to state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation in the areas of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, while undertaking research projects in brand-new large laboratories that are the result of a recent multi-million investment from the College. The programme is designed with a careful balance of diversified learning components, such that, on completion of their studies, the postgraduates acquire extensive knowledge and skills that make them able to undertake careers in a wide range of professional ambits within the biomedical field, including health care services, industry and scientific research.

Structure

The MSc in Biomedical Engineering with Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering includes 1 compulsory, and 7 optional taught modules (15 credits each), as shown on the structure below. You can follow the links for details for each module, and also visit the SEMS website for information on projects and facilities.

Starting in Semester A the programme also includes a research project (60 credits), which is completed under close supervision throughout the year, and submitted in September.

Please note the modules are correct at the time of reading; however we constantly review and update our modules, meaning that they may be subject to change in the future.

Learning and teaching

As a student in the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) you will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, laboratory practicals, and a variety of coursework.

Assessment

The methods of assessment are coursework and formal examinations, which take place in May. Many courses will include continuous assessment so that some or all of the work you do during the course counts towards the final mark.

Research Project

A major part of the MSc is your research project: an individual research project based around the in the current internationally-recognised research taking place in SEMS. This project will be based in the labs and gives you the opportunity to apply the theory you will have learnt in the taught modules while taking advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities within SEMS.
