About

Medical Engineering Applications For Healthcare from Birmingham City University support improving healthcare delivery and medical practice by combining the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological science to close the gap between engineering and medicine.

Overview

This MSc Medical Engineering Applications for Healthcare course from Birmingham City University combines fundamental concepts and knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to develop innovative technologies, material, processes, and systems, with the aim of improving healthcare. The course will enable students from a diverse background such as from engineering, biomedical engineering, medical / surgical, or life sciences, to gain the knowledge and skills to launch or develop their career as medical engineers in this demanding sector of healthcare.

Medical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that interacts with the human body. The course will provide you with a thorough grounding across the whole field of medical engineering and to enable you to integrate and apply this knowledge to clinical problems. Industrial-led practical workshops and labs will help enhance your technical skills. This will enable you to relate ‘real-life’ commercial innovations to the underpinning academic theory learnt in the lectures.
