Biomaterials are modified natural or synthetic materials which find application in a spectrum of medical implants for the repair, augmentation and replacement of body tissues. As people live longer and expect to retain their mobility, the demand for biomaterials and devices is increasing.
Biomaterials save lives, relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for a large number of patients each year. As a field, biomaterials combines engineering expertise with medical needs for the enhancement of healthcare.
This programme will provide you with an advanced understanding of the principles and applications of biomaterials and their functional properties. You will learn about the function and application of biomaterials, their characteristics and their surface, physical and mechanical properties. You will study materials' and medicine'based modules, as well as those written specifically for the programme. You will also undertake a significant research project linked to the research interests of our academic staff.
