About Biomedical Engineering at Faculty of Engineering, University of Strathclyde

Why this course?

The MSc is a modular conversion course which provides broad training in biomedical engineering to help you progress with a career in research, industry or in the NHS.

We bring together engineering, medicine and the life and physical sciences to enable the development of relevant clinical and industrial research.

The programme explores advances in technology and engineering to generate applications and solutions to clinically relevant problems.

As part of the course you'll go on visits to local clinical centres and attend lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas. You'll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical partners to help advise and further your career.
