Course summary

The programme is led by the Department of Engineering with some input from the Department of Biosciences. Prospective students registered in this new innovative programme will gain the necessary skills for a career in the Biomedical and Biotechnology fields with an outlook of learning skills for designing and developing relevant biomedical devices and products used in the health sector as well as gaining knowledge of the mechanics and operation of artificial organs in the human body. The programme also covers the use of data and artificial intelligence methods in helping with addressing some of the most pressing challenges in the field of Biomedical Engineering as well as other relevant engineering challenges when applicable. Course Structure Year 1 During the one-year full-time Masters programme you will study the following: Core modules:

  • Biomechanics 4
  • Physiological Fluid Mechanics 4
  • Artificial Organs 4
  • Biotechnology Design Project
  • Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning 4
  • Tissue Engineering
  • Research and Development Project


Students usually select one optional module form modules such as those listed below (please note not all modules may be available each year): Non-linear Solid Mechanics 4; Environmental Engineering 4; Optimisation 4.

Assessment method

The learning outcomes in this programme are typically assessed by written exams plus written coursework content (if applicable). The Research and Development project is assessed through a combination of an oral examination session and a written research report.

Entry requirements

To be admitted to the MSc Biomedical Engineering degree, you need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least an upper second class standard (2:1). This should be in engineering, physics or other related subject and must include good grades in mathematical modules. We can consider strong industrial experience in the healthcare sector if your degree does not meet the requirements.
