Postgraduate taught course pages
MSc Biomedical Engineering
MSc Biomedical Engineering has been running since 1991. There are five stream options to allow students to specialise their biomedical engineering skills: biomechanics and mechanobiology; biomaterials and tissue engineering; medical physics; computational bioengineeering; neurotechnology.
MSc Engineering for Biomedicine
MSc Engineering for Biomedicine is new for 2021, and allows outstanding clinical and life sciences graduates to develop their technical skills and understanding of biomedical engineering. This course will prepare you to analyse and solve problems in bioengineering using an integrated, multidisciplinary approach.
MSc Human and Biological Robotics
MSc Human and Biological Robotics has been running since 2016, and builds upon the strength of the College-wide Robotics Forum. The course has a unique focus on engineering methods to investigate human and animal sensing and sensorimotor control, and the design of biomimetic systems and assistive devices for humans.
Our courses will provide you with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills in this exciting area. Our applicants come from around the globe. Some, applying for our Biomedical Engineering and Human Biological Robotics MSc courses, have previous study of Biomedical Engineering that they wish to extend further, others come from other engineering and physical science backgrounds such as Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Physics. For our MSc Engineering for Biomedicine course applicants are mostly from life sciences and clinical sciences backgrounds interested in applying knowledge and skills from these areas to bioengineering.
Further details of our courses including entry requirements can be found on the College study pages.
