Biomedical engineering is an exciting, diverse discipline that uses technology and engineering to solve medical and biological problems, inventing new equipment, materials, methods and processes to safely and accurately diagnose patients, improve medical treatment and its outcomes. Responsible for innovations ranging from prosthetic limbs and heart valves, to tissue and stem cell research and biomedical signal processing, latest advances include brain-controlled prosthesis, 3D printing of human organs, remote surgery and disease fighting nanorobots. Bringing together medicine, biological science and engineering, our MSc is both clinically and industry-focused, building on our internationally-leading reputation for regenerative medicine, medical engineering and longstanding expertise in medical devices. It covers a broad range of topics – nanotechnology in medicine, smart materials, biomaterials, prosthetics and rehabilitation, through to management of medical equipment in hospitals. *About Keele
