The School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow has launched a new and exciting interdisciplinary MSc programme in Biomedical Engineering for entry in September 2014.
This Masters (MSc) programme builds on the existing and successful undergraduate (BEng) degree taught from within the Division of Biomedical Engineering.
All of the teaching draws on acknowledged international research expertise of academics within the School two of whom are members of the National Academy of Engineering.
The programme also frames teaching in the context of clinical science as well as industry with collaborations both with local hospitals but also internationally-renowned and leading industries in instrumentation and diagnostics. This provides an applied focus to the Masters that prepares graduates for career positions in rehabilitation engineering, biomaterials for reconstructive surgery, biosensors, medical diagnostics, imaging, and biosignal processing.
The taught Masters also offers students a wide exposure to the philosophy and practice of Biomedical Engineering whilst simultaneously enabling the students to deepen their knowledge of specific areas of biomedical engineering disciplines, which have been chosen on the basis of the research strengths of the discipline.
Professor Jon Cooper, Professor of Bioelectronics and Bioengineering and Head of the Division of Biomedical Engineering, in the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow, said: This undergraduate and the Masters degree both offer exciting programmes, providing students with the opportunity to work closely with industry and clinicians. The course provides excellent teaching from world leading academics in the fields of biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering and diagnostics. We have a particular focus on medical diagnostics of infectious diseases in resource poor settings - especially low and middle income countries. This is an excellent opportunity to join the programme in its first year and join the oldest School of Engineering in the UK."
