The course covers biomedical engineering in a wide range of healthcare establishments such as medical organisations, medical research institutions and NHS Trust hospitals. It provides an opportunity for in-depth research into specialist and novel areas of biomedical engineering. Students experience work in a hospital environment with hands-on knowledge of patient care. They study molecular techniques in tissue engineering and novel technologies for physiological monitoring.
Students holding a first or second class honours degree in engineering, physical or biological sciences, or other professional qualification acceptable to Keele University, are encouraged to apply.
Compulsory modules: human physiology and anatomy; physiological measurement; experimental research methodology; medical equipment and technology services management; biomedical signal processing and modelling; medical device design principles. Option modules: bioreactor and growth environment; biomechanics; molecular techniques; stem cell therapy; nanomagnetics in nanomedicine; biosensors; cell and tissue engineering; cell biomechanics; health care technology assessment; biomaterials.
Modules will be assessed by both in-course assessment and final examination. A major part of the assessment will be based on the student�s research project and written dissertation.
