Brunel University London

Course Introduction

The aim of our Biomedical Genetics and Tissue Engineering MSc is to create qualified biomedical engineers who can help in the design, development, operation and research of complex medical devices for the modern biomedical and healthcare industry. Gaining a deeper insight into genetics and tissue engineering, you will also cover biomechanics and biomaterials, and will learn about genomic technologies and molecular mechanisms. You?ll be in demand in the area of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the characterisation of tissue. Teaching is delivered by enthusiastic world-leading biomedical research experts, and enhanced by clinical professionals who are part of our extensive network of industry and hospital collaborative partners. With our strong industry links, some projects are provided by hospital consultants and are based on solving practical biomedical problems and challenges.

The biomedical engineering postgraduate degree from Brunel will provide you with the acquired skills that are essential to the modern biomedical and healthcare industry. You?ll also have the expertise required to enter into product innovation, development and research. Some of our graduates have taken on roles such as R&D engineer, biomedical specialist in intensive care monitoring and ventilation, product safety associate and engineer laboratory technician. Others have used the accumulated knowledge and skills taught in the courses to join other industries, and indeed some have gone on to carry out PhD research.
