Biomaterials

The Master's course in Biomaterials is multi-disciplinary. It provides students with a rich understanding of current clinically used biomaterials and state-of-the-art advances in research to improve these. The clinical application of these biomaterials will be demonstrated along with an in-depth description of materials structure and processing (e.g. polymer, composite and ceramic). The project component will allow hands-on training for the students in further developing novel biomaterials. This MSc will enable you to increase knowledge and skills in the areas of specific materials design and testing for clinical application.
