Course summary

Overview

Our Medical Engineering & Physics MSc is an award-winning course taught by leading scientists and academics who have played a central role in the evolution of medical physics, medical engineering and clinical sciences. The course will give you a sound knowledge of physical and engineering science as it applies to medicine.

Course detail

Our course is ideal if you are a graduate of the physical and engineering sciences who wants to gain a broad view of the field and to specialise in medical physics/engineering. The modules are also recognised by the UK National Health Service. You will study alongside trainee clinical scientists who undertake the modules of this MSc to fulfil the academic component of their training to become state registered clinical scientists.

Teaching and assessment

You will receive approximately 400 contact hours, which includes lectures, seminars, tutorials and feedback with our expert staff. We will expect you to undertake approximately 800 hours of self-study. You will be assessed through a combination of coursework and exams. Accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) for specific combinations of modules (Medical Physics) or Clinical Engineering streams). We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Career prospects

The majority of our students are employed within a year of graduating. Many will work in healthcare (in the UK NHS or their home countries). Others will undertake post-graduate studies in leading academic institutions, or be employed in the private sector.
