Course summary

The postgraduate taught degree is a modular conversion course which provides broad training in biomedical engineering to help you progress with a career in research, industry or in the NHS. We bring together engineering, medicine and the life and physical sciences to enable the development of relevant clinical and industrial research. The Masters programme explores advances in technology and engineering to generate applications and solutions to clinically relevant problems. As part of the course you’ll go on visits to local clinical centres and attend lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical partners to help advise and further your career.


Compulsory Classes: Medical Science for Engineering, Engineering Science, Professional Studies in Biomedical Engineering, Research Methodology, Biomedical Electronics, Biomedical Instrumentation. Elective Classes: Introduction to Biomechanics, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Regenerative Medicine, Tissue Mechanics, Clinical and Sports Biomechanics, Anatomy and Physiology, Bio signal Processing and Analysis, Biomaterials and Biocompatibility, Cardiovascular Devices, Rehabilitation Technology, Haemodynamic for Engineers

Entry requirements

Normally a first or second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in engineering, physical science, life science, medicine, or a profession allied to medicine. For candidates with other qualifications, or who may benefit from a longer period of study, the MSc can be undertaken over 24 months.
