MSc Design for Medical Technologies


Course Description

The MSc Design for Medical Technologies is aimed at providing the key knowledge and experience to allow you to pursue a career in bioengineering, healthcare or biotechnology. The course will expose you to the leading edge of modern medical and surgical technologies, as well as exploring the role of entrepreneurship, business development and intellectual property exploitation.

Why study Design for Medical Technologies at Dundee?

The unique environments of medicine and biotechnology offer exacting challenges in the design of high technology products for use in these fields. Engineers and product designers involved in the development of new biomedical instrumentation, surgical tools or biotechnology products must understand the constrictions placed on them by this environment. As a result, bioengineering has been established as the fusion of engineering and ergonomics with a deep understanding of medical science.

Benefits of the programme include:
Knowledge and understanding of medical and surgical engineering and technology
Skills in research methods, communications, teamwork and management
Appreciation of entrepreneurship and the global 'Medtech' industry
Participation in research activities of world renowned research groups
Preparation for careers in industry, academia and commerce

What's great about Design for Medical Technologies at Dundee?

The University of Dundee is one of the top UK universities, with a powerful research reputation, particularly in the medical and biomedical sciences. It has previously been named Scottish University of the Year and short-listed for the Sunday Times UK University of the year.

The new Institute of Medical Science and Technology (IMSaT) at the University has been established as a multidisciplinary research 'hothouse' which seeks to commercialise and exploit advanced medical technologies leading to business opportunities.

The start date is September each year, and lasts for 12 months.

How you will be taught

The structure of the MSc course is divided into two parts. The taught modules expose students to the leading edge of modern medical and surgical technologies. The course gives concepts and understanding of the role of entrepreneurship, business development and intellectual property exploitation in the biomedical industry, with case examples.

The research project allows students to work in a research area of their own particular interest, learning skills in presentation, critical thinking and problem-solving. Project topics are offered to students during the first semester of the course.

What you will study

The three taught modules are:
Imaging and Instrumentation for Medicine and Surgery (30 Credits)
Biomechanics and Biomedical (30 Credits)
Advanced Medical and Surgical Instrumentation (30 Credits)

These modules are followed by the biomedical research project (90 credits).

How you will be assessed

The course is assessed by coursework and examination, plus research project.
