ME Biomedical Engineering
Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 120)
When studying this Masters, you will work with staff and researchers at UCD who have extensive experience in ground-breaking biomedical engineering research. You will also develop a knowledge of how the medical device industry is regulated and how new products are introduced to the market, drawing from experience within UCD which includes pioneering companies.
The ME in Biomedical Engineering is the application of the principles of engineering to healthcare and medicine. It is an interdisciplinary field, requiring knowledge of both medicine and engineering.
Students choose from a wide range of engineering, anatomy/physiology and biomedical engineering modules
Students will work with staff and researchers at UCD who have extensive experience in ground-breaking biomedical engineering research as this programme is delivered by a research active, internationally recognised faculty.
This programme offers a 6-8 month work placement and superlative employment opportunities.
Who should apply?
Full Time option suitable for:
Domestic(EEA) applicants: Yes
International (Non EEA) applicants currently residing outside of the EEA Region. Yes
The ME Biomedical Engineering is designed to allow mathematically strong engineers who hold a primary (Bachelors) degree in Engineering to specialise at Masters level in Biomedical Engineering. It is targeted at engineers who are seeking a professional career in the emerging field of Biomedical Engineering.
The programme is delivered by engineers and clinicians with international reputations in the field and who have all made a significant contribution to the development of their fields.
There is an emphasis on independent learning and research, with the opportunity to complete a work placement in the medical technologies industry, with a clinical group or with a research laboratory in UCD or abroad.
As part of the ME students will study Biomedical Engineering subjects such as Rehabilitation Engineering, Neural Engineering, Biomechanics, Cell and Tissue Engineering and Medical Device Design. They will also have the opportunity to choose from a range of modules in physiology and anatomy alongside advanced engineering topics including Advanced Signal Processing and Dynamics.
The year starts with a two-week, intensive, course in Basic Medical Sciences delivered by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
