Course summary

This course is an excellent preparation for employment in the medical device, pharma and biotechnology sectors and as preparation for PhD study or research positions. The course draws upon the internationally recognised research within the School of Engineering in areas such as tissue engineering, bioceramics, medical devices, defibrillators, medical electrodes and drug delivery. Core modules include biomaterials, tissue engineering and bioinstrumentation. The course team has a wealth of industrial experience, and several medical device spin-out companies have been established by the School. Upon successful completion of the programme students will be more employable, particularly within the industry. Another important opportunity for MSc graduates is to explore an academic and/or research career through a PhD programme such as those offered by the School of Engineering at Ulster through our Nanotechnology and Integrated Bioengineering Centre (NIBEC). Professional Recognition - Accredited by Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Entry requirements

PgDip: Normally, an Honours or non-Honours degree or postgraduate diploma/certificate in a relevant engineering, technology or science discipline. In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant working/industrial experience, a portfolio of written evidence may be considered as an alternative entrance route. It is possible to transfer onto the MSc version of the course after successfully completing the PGDip.
