Masters degrees in Neural Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to administer apply engineering methodologytechniques to increase understanding of understand the biological processes within the nervous system. This includes the design of systems and devices to repair, enhance or treat the nervous system.
Taught MSc and Meng (Master of Engineering) degrees are typical for the field. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biochemistry or Medicine.
Courses in this field are highly interdisciplinary, combining approaches from disciplines including Neuroscience, Biochemical Engineering, Psychology and Anthropology.
Training will cover molecular, cellular and behaviour investigations of neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and depression.
Analysis of the genetic and environmental factors which impact and influence degenerative neurological and psychiatric diseases is a key component of these courses. This includes practical techniques such as bioimaging, chromatography and flow cytometry and the creation of devices such as biosensors.
Expertise in this field may be applied to biomedical, pharmaceutical or neuropsychological careers, as well as further research at PhD level.
