Start date

September 2020

Duration

12 months

Study mode

Full Time

Location

Dundee City Campus

Develop your skills, knowledge, and understanding of biomedical engineering and living systems. You will also apply engineering principles and design methods to create new techniques and instruments in medicine and surgery.

Along with studying the principles and technologies of biomedical engineering, you will look at the role of entrepreneurship, business development, and intellectual property exploitation in the biomedical industry.

Under the guidance of our academic staff, you will undertake a research project that will focus on an area of your own particular interest, helping you to develop your presentation, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. Recent projects examples have looked at syringe filling systems for new born injections, and microwave cancer thermal ablation in minimally invasive surgery.

“Keyhole surgery was pioneered in Dundee, so when it came to choosing where to study there was nowhere else I wanted to go. I was also attracted to the close relationship that the University has with Ninewells Hospital, as this provides valuable real-life hospital work experience which is essential to studying biomedical engineering.”
