Course summary

We build employability into every aspect of our course. Through the course you will gain a range of transferable skills allowing you to take on a career in a number of sectors, alongside developing an in-depth understanding of your subject.

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 courses are equipped with the knowledge and skills for working in medical imaging technology workface in industry, healthcare or academic environments. Accreditation enables fast-track career progression as a professional medical imaging technician.

What's covered in the course?

Our MSc in Medical Imaging Technology combines elements from physics, mathematics, computer science, biomedical engineering, biology and clinical medicine to help you develop your knowledge, understanding and skills of engineering design, medical imaging technologies and clinical environment.

Through internationally recognised researchers, projects, guest lecturers and a stong collaboration with medical imaging technology SME’s / NHS Trust partners, you will develop the skills needed for a career in a medical imaging-related filed in clinical practice, research, or technical development. A range of optional modules will be offered so you can gain a greater knowledge in an area of your choosing.

This course comprises both a taught component and a research project, giving you the skills and knowledge required to pursue a career in applied medical imaging technology field within clinical medicine, medical research, and scientific research or development. The course offers you the opportunity to undertake an optional summer placement and work independently or as a team, to solve medical imaging technology 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.

Throughout the course you will complete your Professional Project – an independent piece of research on a topic within medical imaging technology that allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.
