Course Introduction

This MSc programme in Biomedical Engineering is a 1 calendar year conversion programme that is part of a suite of programmes offered in Biomedical Engineering at Queen Mary University of London. This MSc conversion programme is aimed at students who already have an in depth knowledge of an area of Science (e.g. Maths, Physics, Biology or Chemistry), and who wish to convert to a career in Biomedical Engineering.

This MSc programme aims to prepare specialists with advanced knowledge and transferable skills in the field of Biomedical Engineering, covering the following topics: Fundamentals of human physiology; Ethics and regulatory affairs in the biomedical field; advanced aspects of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and biomaterials; advanced techniques to synthesize and/or characterise materials for biomedical engineering; mechanics of tissues, cells and sub-cellular components; biocompatibility of implantable materials and devices; materials and techniques for nanotechnology and nanomedicine.

The programme has strong roots within the well-recognised expertise of the academics that deliver the lectures, who have international standing in cutting-edge research on Biomedical Engineering and Materials. This fact ensures that the programme is delivered with the highest standards in the field. The students also benefit from access to state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation in the areas of Biomedical Engineering and Materials, while undertaking research projects in brand-new large laboratories that are the result of a recent multi-million investment from QMUL. The programme is designed with a careful balance of diversified learning components, such that, on completion of their studies, the postgraduates acquire extensive knowledge and skills that make them able to undertake careers in a wide range of professional ambits within the biomedical field, including health care services, industry and scientific research.
