Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

The aim of this course is to allow students with a strong engineering background to develop their knowledge in this field to an advanced level, in both experimental and computational areas, allowing them to participate in the advancement of knowledge as well as technology in this area. The programme aims to prepare specialists with advanced skills in computational modelling, numerical techniques and in depth understanding in engineering approaches to biological problems. Students completing this programme will be able to develop novel computational and technology products for use in the biomedical industries. You will have acquired extensive knowledge in the areas of computational solid and fluid mechanics with a focus on biomedical applications such as biomechanics, bio-fluids, tissue engineering.

The MSc in Biomedical Engineering may also appeal to clinicians interested in this exciting and rapidly developing area of medicine. The MSc provides the opportunity to be involved in internationally leading bioengineering research and to gain a valuable postgraduate qualification, both of which may aid career progression within medicine. Biomedical Engineering applies the principles of science and engineering to biological and medical problems. It has applications in a variety of fields from the design, development and operation of complex medical devices used in diagnosis and treatment, to the development of software products and theoretical models that enhance the understanding of complex issues in the biomedical area. Biomedical engineering is a rapidly developing field that relies on inter- and multidisciplinary approach to research and development. Specialists in this area face problems that differ significantly from the more traditional branches of engineering. Biomedical engineers use methodologies and techniques developed in the more traditional engineering fields and adapt them to the particular specifications of the biomedical applications.
