The MSc in Healthcare Technology will provide multidisciplinary masters-level training to equip you with the skills needed to pursue exciting careers in this area, both in industrial and academic settings. Graduates from the programme will form the next generation of researchers developing novel technologies enabling healthier ageing.

Key themes within healthcare technology research at the University of Birmingham are scar-free healing, early detection and diagnosis of diseases, tissue regeneration, developing better prosthetics, and tackling antibiotic resistance. You will have the chance to develop understanding in these areas from a set of core modules.

You will also be able to choose from a series of optional modules to develop additional expertise in complementary areas, such as bioprocessing, business, and pharmaceuticals. Finally, MSc students will have the opportunity to apply their understanding by undertaking an original research project with research groups working within the Healthcare Technologies Institute or School of Chemical Engineering.

We expect graduates from the MSc in Healthcare Technology to work in the growing industry surrounding this area, for example diagnostics, medical devices, and other medical technology. We also expect some graduates will pursue further study, via PhD or other doctoral programmes.
