The MSc in Biomedical Engineering will equip students with a breadth of expertise with a focus on solving real-world, biomedical problems. The first semester incorporates modules covering core topics in engineering, biology and research practice. The second semester delves into specialist modules on human movement analysis, prostheses, implants, physiological measurements, rehabilitation, and computer methods applied across the discipline. The research project is carried out across both semesters and the summer period. The programme uses a blend of teaching methods, including lectures and tutorials, visits to hospitals and industry, computer workshops, and laboratory work. Students will be taught by lecturers who are at the forefront of their field, as well as leading industry experts. The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).
The Computer Science programme will provide students with the balance of knowledge and skills they need to design and implement software and complex systems to a professional standard. They will get plenty of opportunity to apply theory to real-world scenarios and may opt to take a Professional Training placement year, giving them invaluable industry experience. The programme covers a wide range of topics including object-oriented programming, artificial intelligence, mobile computing and computational mathematics, using languages and tools such as Java, C++, Android, SQL, Python, MATLAB and assembler, and specialist hardware such as Arduino microcontrollers.
Through this course students will explore core elements of accounting and finance in detail, through modules on financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, taxation, corporate finance and financial risk. The programme also delves into various aspects of business operations, from the challenges of managing people, processes and customers to the way organisations operate within a global political, legal and social environment. This blend of specific accounting and finance modules with a wider understanding of business gives students both a strong theoretical foundation in the subject and an appreciation of how accounting and finance are applied in real-world business situations.
