Biomedical Engineering - with or without Applied Research

Ulster University - Belfast

Biomedical Engineering - with or without Applied Research

This course is an excellent preparation for employment in the medical device, pharma and biotechnology sectors and as preparation for PhD study or research positions.

The course draws upon the internationally recognised research within the School of Engineering in areas such as tissue engineering, bioceramics, medical devices, defibrillators, medical electrodes and drug delivery.

Core modules include biomaterials, tissue engineering and bioinstrumentation. The course team has a wealth of industrial experience, and several medical device spin-out companies have been established by the school.

Upon successful completion of the programme students will be more employable within the industry. Another important opportunity for MSc graduates is to explore an academic and/ or research career through a PhD programme, such as those offered by the School of Engineering at Ulster through our Nanotechnology and Integrated Bioengineering Centre (NIBEC).

The Applied Research version of the course is a two year programme with an extended year-long research dissertation.
