Biomedical Engineering Science - Structured

Course overview

This Structured PhD programme spans the Biomedical Engineering and Regenerative Medicine domains and aims to become a leading international graduate education programme in the field, in which Irelandis already taking a strong international role. The overall objective is to develop PhD graduates who will produce ground-breaking scientific results benefiting human health and contributing to economic growth, and who will, in turn, lead research and development in these fields in industry and academia. BME&RM combines a PhD research project with a unique experiential learning and didactic programme, resulting in an unparalleled learning experience for the student in terms of its combination of world-class research and focused clinical and industrial interaction.

The BME&RM programme will be delivered by a core partnership of institutions: National University of Ireland Galway, University of Limerick and University College Cork, linked with a wider consortium of partner institutions nationally and internationally: Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Institute of Technology Sligo, University of Ulster, Queen’s University Belfast, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Pittsburgh, Duke University, Irish Medical Devices Association (IMDA), Rice University, Mayo Clinic, RWTH Aachen University and Georgia Tech Ireland.
