University of Liverpool

The Biomedical Engineering (Healthcare Pathway) MSc is a programme for intercalating medical students and Life Science related, non-engineering graduates. The MSc provides students with a sound knowledge of the principles of the key sub-disciplines within biomedical engineering and develops skills vital to the role of engineering in Healthcare.Biomedical engineers are vital to Healthcare.The scope of Biomedical Engineering in Healthcare encompasses many aspects and careers in:-Developing Medical devices for diagnosis, treatment & rehabilitation-Measurement, modelling, monitoring and simulation of human physiology and anatomy-Tissue engineering and biomaterials-Inventing & developing products for wellness & independent living.-Biomedical engineering components are found in a vast and ever increasing range of products; from -Artificial organs, Biomaterials & regenerative engineering, Computer simulation for surgery and -Image-guided robot surgery, to products for Independent living, Medical imaging, Neurotechnology, -Orthopaedic implants, Tissue engineering and much moreAlthough most teaching is through traditional lectures and practical classes, active learning methodologies are being introduced to many postgraduate modules to enhance the learning experience.Assessment will take place through written examinations and continuous learning exercises. Many of the modules require students to develop skills in independent learning.Nick Turner – Biomedical Engineering MSc: “Studying an accredited course, such as Biomedical Engineering MSc (Eng) at the University of Liverpool, places you in a very strong professional standing upon completion. For me, the course was a direct link to industry and allowed me step into the profession I aspired to be in.”
