MSc Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Our one year postgraduate taught courses provide an innovative programme of study in which students are challenged to achieve their best; developing specialist skills and knowledge sought after by employers, as well as establishing an ideal background for PhD research.

The study of human biology as a material engineer has helped me develop my clinical biology and understand the methods involved in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of pathology.
