This one-year, research-led course will fully prepare you for a career within an exciting and ever-expanding field. You’ll develop expertise in systems analysis and mathematical modelling for application to processes in biomedicine; compartmental modelling in physiology and medicine; physical principles in medicine; properties and design of the materials employed in medical applications; and signal processing and data analysis techniques for physiological data.
Our supportive teaching staff will encourage you to generate new and forward-thinking ideas as part of your independent research project. Projects initiated by former students include: Bone Investigation using Infrared Detection; Modelling Gas Exchange in the Human Respiratory System and Modelling of Acute Hypercalcemia Immunotherapy Treatment. Recent graduates have progressed into careers that range from biomedical engineering and biotechnology to pharmaceutical industries and research.

Half the course credit comprises a substantial project appropriate to the course of study. This entails an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation of a topic chosen by the student in conjunction with an academic supervisor.
The modules are delivered thoughout the first two terms. The module cycle is typically 3 or more more lectures per week plus seminars and laboratory exercises. Where possible the modules are interleaved in pairs. Each module has a coursework exercise associated with it to be completed within 1 month of the end of the module to demonstrate the student's understanding of the subject.
