Our MSc will give you hands on practical knowledge in world class laboratories and will offer you the opportunity to develop advanced skills in modelling that are useful to simulate the complexities of the human body but also can be used in other more traditional engineering contexts.

MSc Bioengineering students study medical regulations in an innovative way

Whether from a traditional engineering or purely scientific background our course will equip you with the specialist knowledge and skills to integrate biology and medicine with engineering to ultimately solve problems related to living systems. 

You’ll be taught by world leading scientists and have access to live research through the course's close partnership with The Insigneo Institute for in silico medicine. 

The MSc Bioengineering programme has three distinct themes:

  • Biomaterials
  • Imaging
  • In silico medicine

In addition to this unique combination, you'll also have the choice to explore medical device and product design concepts further. The course allows you to tailor the programme with your interests and choose a breadth of modules from biomechanics to the use of virtual reality and 3D visualisation approaches, that will ultimately support your research project.

The MSc Bioengineering programme is for those from an engineering, computer or basic sciences background, who want to develop knowledge at the interface with the life sciences finding solutions to current challenges facing medicine and the globally expanding biomedical industry sector.

Apply to this course and be part of this exciting new era where biology meets engineering to improve our quality of life.
