The MSc in Electronics with Medical Instrumentation aims to produce postgraduates with an ability to design and implement medical instrumentation based systems used for monitoring, detecting and analysing biomedical data. The course will provide ample opportunity to develop practical skill sets. The student will also develop an in-depth understanding of the scientific principles and use of the underlying components such as medical transducers, biosensors and state-of-the-art tools and algorithms used to implement and test diagnostic devices, therapeutic devices, medical imaging equipment and medical instrumentation devices.

The course broadens the discussion of medical equipment and its design by investigating a range of issues including medical equipment regulation, user requirements, impacts of risk, regulatory practice, legislation, quality insurance mechanisms, certification, ethics and ‘health and safety’ assessment. The course will enable a student with an interest in medical electronics to re-focus existing knowledge gained in software engineering, embedded systems engineering and/or electronic systems engineering and will deliver a set specialist practical skills and a deeper understanding of the underlying principles of medical physics. A graduate from this course will be able to immediately participate in this multi-disciplined engineering sector of biomedical and medical instrumentation systems design.

Course structure

Each MSc course consists of three learning modules (40 credits each) plus an individual project (60 credits). Each learning module consists of a short course of lectures and initial hands-on experience. This is followed by a period of independent study supported by a series of tutorials. During this time you complete an Independent Learning Package (ILP). The ILP is matched to the learning outcomes of the module. It can be either a large project or a series of small tasks depending on the needs of each module. Credits for each module are awarded following the submission of a completed ILP and its successful defence in a viva voce examination. This form of assessment develops your communication and personal skills and is highly relevant to the workplace. Overall, each learning module comprises approximately 400 hours of study.

The project counts for one third of the course and involves undertaking a substantial research or product development project. For part-time students, this can be linked to their employment. It is undertaken in two phases. In the first part, the project subject area is researched and a workplan developed. The second part involves the main research and development activity. In all, the project requires approximately 600 hours of work.

Further flexibility is provided within the structure of the courses in that you can study related topic areas by taking modules from other courses as options (pre-requisite knowledge and skills permitting).

Prior to starting your course, you are sent a Course Information and Preparation Pack which provides information to give you a flying start.

MSc Electronics Suite of Courses

The MSc in Electronics has four distinct pathways:
-Robotic and Control Systems
-Embedded Systems
-System-on-Chip Technologies
-Medical Instrumentation

The subject areas covered within the four pathways of the electronic suite of MSc courses offer students an excellent launch pad which will enable the successful graduate to enter into these ever expanding, fast growing and dominant areas. With ever increasing demands from consumers such as portability, increased battery life and greater functionality combined with reductions in cost and shrinking scales of technologies, modern electronic systems are finding ever more application areas.

A vastly expanding application base for electronic systems has led to an explosion in the use of embedded system technologies. Part of this expansion has been led by the introduction of new medical devices and robotic devices entering the main stream consumer market. Industry has also fed the increase in demand particularly within the medical electronics area with the need of more sophisticated user interfaces, demands to reduce equipment costs, demands for greater accessibility of equipment and a demand for ever greater portability of equipment.

If you have ever spent some time in hospital, you are probably unaware that you were the beneficiary of medical devices that have been designed and developed by Medical Engineering Designers. Everything from the bed you lie on to the MRI scanner that shows your insides on a screen, to the blood pressure monitor, to the scalpel that cuts your skin is known as a Medical Device and will have had input from Medical Engineering Designers. Even if you have a blood pressure monitor at home, this is still a medical device and will have been designed by a Medical Engineering Designer. The aim of the MSc in Medical Engineering Design is to convert you into a Medical Engineering Designer so that you can work in this highly regulated design discipline.

The course is run by the School of Medicine (https://www.keele.ac.uk/medicine/) in collaboration with the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine (https://www.keele.ac.uk/istm/).

Teaching takes place at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a dedicated research facility located on the Royal Stoke University Hospital site, and also at the main University Campus. The School of Medicine is one of the top-ranked in the UK, and the research institute has an international reputation for world-leading research (https://www.keele.ac.uk/istm/newsandevents/istmnews2015/istmrefratingsmar2014.php) in medical engineering and healthcare technologies.

The Guy Hilton Research Centre offers state-of-the-art laboratories housing equipment for translational research including newly-developed diagnostic instruments, advanced imaging modalities and additive manufacturing facilities. Its location adjacent to the University Hospital ensures that students experience real-world patient care and the role that technology plays. Students also have access to advanced equipment for physiological measurement, motion analysis and functional assessment in other hospital and campus-based laboratories.

The School embraces specialists working in Royal Stoke University Hospital, County Hospital in Stafford and specialist Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry. You therefore have the opportunity to specialise in any of the varied clinical disciplines offered at these hospitals.

The School also runs MSc courses in Biomedical Engineering (https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/biomed/) and in Cell and Tissue Engineering (https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/biomed/), and an EPSRC and MRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training, ensuring a stimulating academic environment for students and many opportunities for engaging with further study and research.

As a postgraduate student at Keele not only will you be joining a vibrant undergraduate community you will also be part of Keele's celebrated postgraduate family (the first student union dedicated to postgraduate students in the country). For more information on postgraduate life at Keele follow this link to the Keele Postgraduate Association (the link is http://www.kpa.org.uk).

Between March and September 2017 the University will be holding a number of Postgraduate Open Afternoons (https://www.keele.ac.uk/visiting/postgraduateopenafternoons/) to give prospective students the opportunity to visit the campus and learn more about Keele and postgraduate life in general. Please visit the Postgraduate Open Afternoons web page for more information.

Entry requirements:
Because this is a “conversion” course you need not have an engineering degree to apply. You must have a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) based degree, but that could be anything from Biomedical Science, through Forensic Science, to Computer Science. Of course, if you have an engineering degree you can still apply.

We welcome applications with a first or second-class degree (or equivalent) in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) discipline. We also welcome enquiries from people with other professional qualifications acceptable to the University.

We recommend applicants discuss their first degree with the course tutor before applying to ensure that this course meets personal aspirations.

For international applicants, an English language IELTS score of 6.5 is required.
