Biomedical engineering is a new and rapidly emerging field of engineering that relies on a multidisciplinary approach to research and development by applying the principles of science and engineering to biological and clinical problems. Problems in this area differ significantly from the more traditional branches of engineering. Nevertheless, the biomedical engineer relies on methodologies and techniques developed in more traditional engineering fields, which are further advanced and adapted to the particular complexities associated with biological systems. These applications vary from the design, development and operation of complex medical devices used in prevention, diagnosis and treatment, to the characterisation of tissue behaviour in health and disease, to the development of software products and theoretical models that enhance the understanding of complex biomedical issues.
This programme aims to prepare specialists with advanced skills sought by the biomedical industries and establishments, including experimental and numerical techniques, computational modelling and in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to biological problems. The acquired knowledge and skills would enable you to participate in the advancement of knowledge and technology in this field. Case studies originating in practical medical and industrial problems are provided throughout the programme involving a range of clinical disciplines including orthopaedics, cardiovascular medicine, urology, radiology and rehabilitation.
The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is organised by a team of medical engineers within the School of Engineering and Materials Science, which has an internationally leading reputation in research, working closely with collaborators in Europe, US and Asia, on exciting research and development projects in this field. World-renowned specialists from the nationally leading Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry provide vital contributions to the programme.
International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards
In recognition of the important investment that overseas students are making in their education, Queen Mary is pleased to offer International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards for 2014 entry. These awards are for the value of either £2,000 or £5,000 per year and are designed to reward academic achievement and help attract the brightest and best students from overseas.International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards will be deducted directly from tuition fees payable to the College. They apply to all taught courses, both undergraduate and postgraduate, offered by the following Schools:School of Biological and Chemical Sciences School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science School of Engineering and Materials Science (excluding MSc Dental Materials (J5S9)) School of Physics and Astronomy
Value of Scholarship(s)
£2,000 - £5,000
The level of award that a student may be eligible to receive will be based on previous academic attainment. For example, to be eligible to receive an award of £2,000 students must be on track to meet or exceed our minimum entry requirements for the programme of their choice at the point of offer. To be eligible to receive an award of £5,000 per year, students must have achieved grades equivalent to a UK First Class Bachelors degree or overseas equivalent. For overseas equivalents please refer to the tables below.
There is no need to complete a separate application form to be considered for an International Science and Engineering Excellence Award. Students will be considered for an award on the basis of the information they provide in their online application to Queen Mary.
Successful candidates will be informed of their award via email notification directing them to the MySiS applicant portal by the Admissions Office.
