Course summary

Our MSc is designed to provide 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 to medicine and healthcare.

Course description

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.

We'll introduce you to the field of biomaterials, and important factors in the selection, design, and development of biomaterials for clinical applications.

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 and 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.

You can tailor the course to suit your interests and research project. Optional modules range from biomechanics to the use of virtual reality and 3D visualisation approaches.

  • Be part of an exciting field that integrates biology and engineering to improve quality of life.
  • Through optional modules and an in-depth research project you’ll have a variety of ways to explore your area of interest.

Accreditation

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.
