MSc - Master of Science
University of Liverpool
The growth of Biomedical Engineering is being driven by the demand for new treatments for the ageing population. It is the fastest growing engineering discipline worldwide.
The Biomedical Engineering with Management (Healthcare) MSc is a programme for intercalating medical students and Life Science related, non-engineering graduates.
Biomedical Engineers are vital to Healthcare
The scope of Biomedical Engineering in Healthcare encompasses many aspects:
- Developing Medical devices for diagnosis, treatment & rehabilitation
- Measurement, modelling, monitoring and simulation of human physiology and anatomy
- Sports technology
- Inventing & developing products for wellness & independent living.
Biomedical engineering components are found in a vast and ever increasing range of products; from artificial organs, biomaterials & regenerative engineering, computer simulation for surgery and image-guided robot surgery, to products for independent living, medical imaging, neurotechnology, orthopaedic implants, tissue engineering and much more.
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 MSc is for those seeking to develop advanced specialist knowledge in biomedical engineering for the healthcare industry, combined with an in-depth understanding of management and business acumen to master’s degree level.
It provides a strong background and advanced learning in the main biomedical engineering areas including biomechanics, biomaterials, imaging, modelling and tissue engineering as well as an emphasis on manufacturing, with management training embedded throughout the course.
This MSc provides an opportunity for non-engineers, such as intercalating medical students, to gain additional inter-disciplinary training. The healthcare pathway is suitable for intercalating medical students and those from a Health and Life Sciences pathway.
Our teaching combines traditional lectures and practical classes, plus active learning methodologies to enhance the learning experience. Assessment will take place through written examinations and continuous learning exercises. Many of the modules require students to develop skills in independent learning.
We equip our students for rewarding careers and our graduates have found jobs in a wide range of industries and organisations, both in the UK and abroad.
Programmes include a strong practical element and incorporate the latest academic and industry research, enabling you to work effectively at the forefront of engineering.
When you graduate you can count on the University's Careers and Employability Service to help you plan your future.
