Program Description:

Biomedical engineering is a new and rapidly emerging field of engineering that relies on a multidisciplinary approach to research and development by applying the principles of science and engineering to biological and clinical problems. Specialists in this area face problems that differ significantly from the more traditional branches of engineering. Nevertheless, the biomedical engineer relies on methodologies and techniques developed in more traditional engineering fields, which are further developed and adapted to the particular complexities associated with biological systems. These applications vary from the design, development and operation of complex medical devices used in prevention, diagnosis and treatment, to the characterisation of tissue behaviour in health and disease, to the development of software products and theoretical models that enhance the understanding of complex biomedical issues. This programme aims to prepare specialists with advanced skills in experimental and numerical techniques, computational modelling and in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to biological problems, allowing you to participate in the advancement of knowledge and technology in this field. Case studies are provided throughout the programme involving a range of clinical disciplines including orthopaedics, cardiovascular medicine, urology, radiology and rehabilitation. The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is organised by a team of Medical Engineers within the School of Engineering and Materials Science, which has an internationally leading reputation in research, working closely with collaborators in Europe, US and Asia, on exciting research and development projects in this field. Programme outline The programme includes three core modules, five optional modules and a research project. Core modules: Mechanics of Continua Research Methods and Experimental Techniques Medical Ethics, Law and Regulatory Practice in Bioengineering Research Project (four modules) Module options may include: Biomechanics Advanced Biofluid Mechanics Tissue engineering and Regenerative Medicine Functional Materials in Medical Engineering Principles and Applications of Medical Imaging Biomedical Engineering of Urology Implant Design and Technology Clinical Measurements Surgical Techniques
