MSc in Biomedical Engineering
This innovative programme will help you to gain expertise in the exciting field of biomedical engineering and covers both theory and practical applications.
Wireless Networking and Sensing in e-Healthcare
This unit will draw specifically on the electrical engineering department's acknowledged expertise in communications. It will give you the opportunity to work closely with subject areas covered by the ground-breaking SPHERE project.
We are implementing an innovative new scheme which will give you, on a competitive basis, the potential to help bridge the gap between healthcare professionals and University research, through your individual MSc projects.
You will work together with your host to turn your findings into research proposals. The best examples will be developed and become part of your MSc project.
Taking part in this scheme will help give you valuable insight into creating real-world applications for the healthcare profession.
Over the duration of the programme you'll be taught by experts in the field of biomedical engineering, such as:
Dr Alin Achim
Professor Ian Craddock
Director of SPHERE
Dr Conor Houghton
Professor Nello Cristianini
Computational Genomics and Bioinformatics Algorithms
The MSc in Biomedical Engineering programme will give you access to state-of-the-art facilities at the University:
Clinical Research and Imaging Centre
A cutting-edge clinical research facility supporting local, national, and international research.
The Wolfson Bioimaging Facility
An extensive range of advanced fluorescence imaging systems are positioned alongside high-specification electron microscopes to provide exceptional opportunities for microscopy applications.
The programme director is Dr Alin Achim from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
