Masters degrees in Medical Devices & Instrumentation offer advanced training in the design and development of devices used to diagnose, monitor, treat and prevent diseases.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant medical or technology-based subject.
Courses in this field allow you to explore a range of advanced materials, their properties and function in the design and development of medical and healthcare devices.
This will include analysing how smart materials, micro-electronics and information technology are administered in the development creation of these devices, and the bioengineering systems which they operate within.
From biosensors to wearable technology, you will explore the use of these devices in the contexts of anatomy, physiology, illness, disease, and rehabilitation. Consideration is also given to the regulations, procedures and principles which govern the sector, including consumer standards and public policy.
Expertise can be applied to a range of medical fieldscareers, from sports coaching to prosthetics, to plastic and cosmetic surgery.
