Course summary

Our MSc provides you with all of the necessary technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills to succeed in one of the fastest growing engineering disciplines. Bioengineering is a multidisciplinary field that combines biology and engineering, and which allows you to apply engineering principles and materials to medicine and healthcare.

Course description

The course has been developed in line with accreditation standards and will seek to be formally accredited at the earliest opportunity, backdating this status to those who have previously studied on the programme.

This unique course combines biomaterials, imaging and in silico medicine. It gives you the medical background, specialist knowledge, and theoretical and practical skills you’ll need to integrate biology and medicine with engineering and ultimately solve problems related to living systems.

You’ll also have the chance to explore the medical devices field and product design, together with their regulatory aspects.

You’ll develop experimental skills in our world-class laboratories. There are also opportunities to develop advanced skills in modelling. These skills are useful for simulating the complexities of the human body and for more traditional engineering contexts.

You’ll be taught by world-leading scientists. We work closely with specialist research centres at the University of Sheffield, including Insigneo and POLARIS, along with research groups focusing on advances in biomaterials, bioengineering and health technologies. This means you’ll be positioned at the forefront of biomedical innovation and become part of a community of professionals in the field while you study.

We regularly bring in guest speakers from industrial companies such as ELAROS, XIROS, Philips Medical Systems, JRI Orthopedics and Brandon Medical, which ensures our teaching is relevant to the workplace.
