Course summary

This MSc Medical Engineering Applications for Healthcare course combines fundamental concepts and knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to develop innovative technologies, material, processes, and systems, with the aim of improving healthcare. The course will enable students from a diverse background such as from engineering, biomedical engineering, medical / surgical, or life sciences, to gain the knowledge and skills to launch or develop their career as medical engineers in this demanding sector of healthcare.

The course is currently in the process of seeking accreditation from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

International students will be eligible for a Graduate Route visa, which allows them to stay in the UK for up to two years after they graduate from the course, with no restriction on the type of work they can do.

What's covered in the course?

Medical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that interacts with the human body. The course will provide you with a thorough grounding across the whole field of medical engineering and to enable you to integrate and apply this knowledge to clinical problems. Industrial-led practical workshops and labs will help enhance your technical skills. This will enable you to relate ‘real-life’ commercial innovations to the underpinning academic theory learnt in the lectures.

Birmingham City University attracts a diverse range of students from across the world. Our state-of-the-art facilities will allow you to explore a variety of biomedical applications including: sensing and measuring on micro and nano scales, personal health tracking, remote diagnosis and monitoring, biomaterials to name a few. The knowledge acquired will then enable you to engage in exciting projects such as designing prostheses or devising new medical technology for physicians and medical professionals to be used in the prognosis, diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Throughout the course you will complete your Professional Project – an independent piece of research on a topic within medical engineering that allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in this exciting field of Medical Engineering Applications for healthcare.

Throughout the course you will gain a range of transferable skills allowing you to undertake a career in a number of sectors, alongside developing an in-depth understanding of your subject. We build employability into every aspect of our course. The course offers you the opportunity to undertake an optional summer placement and work independently or as a team to solve medical engineering problems, by interacting very closely with a range of professionals. Such professionals may vary from medical engineers to medical practitioners, from private medical device industries or local healthcare trusts (such as; NHS), who are in partnership with the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences.

The course is currently in the process of seeking accreditation from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), such a professional recognition aims to ensure that graduates of accredited programmes are equipped with the knowledge and skills for working in medical engineering workface in industry, healthcare or academic environments. Accreditation enables fast-track career progression as a professional medical engineer.

Employability

By undertaking suitable elective/optional placement opportunities, you'll gain a greater understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health, ageing and disease. This will allow you to collaboratively support the design and delivery of healthcare technology and or medical devices within a clinical or industrial setting.

You may also have invaluable opportunities to test and demonstrate new electro-mechanical models and tools for health and care delivery.
