Course summary

Overview

The growth of biomedical engineering is being driven by the demand for new treatments for diseases for the ageing worldwide population.

It is the fastest growing engineering discipline worldwide, with a projected 72% increase in biomedical engineering jobs in the USA alone over the next 10 years.

The Biomedical Engineering MSc at the University of Liverpool is at the forefront of advancing these areas.

This MSc combines academic expertise from Engineering, Physics and the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences and offers the ideal opportunity to specialise in biomedical engineering and contribute towards the future development of artificial organs, medical devices and novel treatments.

This programme is suitable for graduates from engineering and physical science disciplines seeking to develop advanced specialist knowledge in biomedical engineering combined with essential research skills. It provides a strong background and advanced learning in the main biomedical engineering areas including biomechanics, imaging, tissue engineering and modelling.

This programme is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The programme has an annual start date in September and a duration of 12 months. It starts with a set of taught modules with a total weighting of 120 credits, followed by a 60-credit research project. Project work, based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, contributes 60 credits. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc (Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques and the ability to critically analyse data. Most of the taught modules run over a semester while other modules extend over the whole academic session with the major research project starting in Semester 2 and continuing through the summer. Assessment is by examinations, coursework and an individual dissertation.
