The MSc Biomedical Engineering offered at The University of Hull will cover every step in the process of designing a medical device from concept design and material selection, through analysis and optimisation, to regulatory approval.
This programme has first-hand practical experience of medical device development and we will mentor you as you develop your own ideas. Gain valuable experience of working with either the NHS or other relevant employers as we have built strong partnerships to drive innovation and excellence.
Access up-to-the-minute biomaterials, biomechanics and physiological measurement testing equipment as well as scanning technology including CT, ultrasound and laser.
The University has taken the unusual step of becoming ISO accredited, which means our work reaches industry standards. We commit to making important breakthroughs. Our development of a speech valve, called a tracheoesophageal fistula, illustrates this. This is used to restore speech in patients who have had a laryngectomy, normally as a result of throat cancer.
This MSc course has been designed with employability in mind. Students who successfully complete it go on to work for medical device companies, in industry or academia. There are also employment opportunities to work for regulatory bodies and consultancy companies.
During your studies, you will regularly come into contact with professionals working in the sphere of biomedical engineering and there will be opportunities to enhance your CV by undertaking placements.
You will learn generally applicable professional skills such as effective communication. You will also gain experience in leading, chairing and participating in meetings, presentations and discussions, as well as negotiation and conflict resolution.
