Invest in your future

Rapid growth in the global medical devices industry demands an innovative fusion of biomedical, materials sciences, manufacturing, and engineering knowledge - and the University of Auckland is responding to the challenge.

This programme is aimed primarily at engineers and health professionals to provide them with the necessary broad range of knowledge in the various technologies underpinning medical devices.

Programme Structure

Taught or Research (120 points)
The programme is normally two semesters and will accommodate part-time enrolments. To best meet the needs of participants with different backgrounds, including those coming from industry, the programme is provided as both a research masters and a taught masters.

All students complete two core courses that give an overview of technology and practices related to medical devices.

Students have a choice of completing a 90-point research portfolio or a smaller 60-point research project. In both cases the research is a significant component of the study programme and will involve working with a research group or being seconded to industry for a supervised research project that provides specialisation in a particular aspect of medical device technology. For participants without a medical background, a clinical secondment will be used to strengthen the experiential component of their learning.

Participants enrolled in the 90-point research portfolio will prepare a written thesis, while participants enrolled in the 60-point project will prepare a written project report. Both are examined following the standard the University of Auckland processes.

The taught masters option provides a wide variety of courses that participants can draw upon to best address their own areas of interest. Courses are lecture-based and delivered as modules, each taught by the University’s research specialists ensuring participants meet the multidisciplinary requirements of medical devices technology.


Elective enrolments may depend on your prior study and professional experience, but ultimately, choosing the appropriate courses and topics can allow you to concentrate on and develop strengths in your energy field of choice.

Our broad list of electives include courses in:
• Marketing for Scientific and Technical Personnel
• Frontiers in Biotechnology
• Law and Intellectual Property
• Research Commercialisation
• Commercialisation Project
• Science Enterprise Research Methods
• Product Development and Regulatory Environments
• Advanced Biomedical Imaging
• Advanced Imaging Technologies
• Microelectromechanical Systems
• Biomechatronic Systems

Drug discovery and development

Research in drug discovery and development enables the identification of new drug targets and therapeutics. Postgraduate programmes in Drug Discovery and Development are offered at Victoria University of Wellington. This is a collaborative programme between the following:

  • Ferrier Research Institute
  • Centre for Biodiscovery
  • School of Biological Sciences
  • School of Chemical and Physical Sciences.

The programmes operate on the interface between the fields of chemistry and biological sciences, drawing on the research expertise of the Ferrier Research Institute in drug design and development, and on expertise from the Centre for Biodiscovery in the discovery and design of bioactive compounds and the determination of their modes of action. This programme will equip graduates with the tools to enter the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and agrichemical sectors. The programme has been designed in consultation with international leaders in the pharmaceutical and related fields. 


Students will be provided with a programme of study tailored to their personal skills and interests, with flexibility being offered by the opportunity to undertake directed individual study courses. Alongside the core courses, students will be offered the opportunity to specialise according to their interests, with named specialisations offered in Drug Discovery, Drug Development and Chemical Biology.


The programmes provide graduates with broad knowledge of the processes and activities involved with drug discovery, design and development. It uses a mix of academic and practical skills, and is closely aligned to the needs of pharmaceutical industry in the areas of drug design and development, including bioanalytical, chemical and related industries, nutraceuticals and agrichemicals.

The programmes equip graduates to pursue careers in these industries, in the public or non-governmental sectors, or to continue directly to PhD level studies.
