Bioengineering is a multidisciplinary field that combines Biology and Engineering, and which allows the application of Engineering principles to medicine and healthcare.

This unique course combines biomaterials, imaging and in silico medicine. It gives students the medical background, specialist knowledge, and theoretical and practical skills they will need to integrate Biology and Medicine with Engineering and ultimately solve problems related to living systems.

Students will be introduced to the field of Biomaterials and important factors in the selection, design and development of biomaterials for clinical applications.

Students will also have the chance to explore the medical devices field and product design, together with their regulatory aspects. They’ll develop experimental skills in world-class laboratories and advanced skills in modelling. These skills are useful for simulating the complexities of the human body and for more traditional Engineering contexts.

Students will have leading global scientists as teachers and mentors. The Bioengineering department at the University of Sheffield works closely with specialist research centres, including Insigneo and POLARIS, along with research groups focusing on advances in Biomaterials, Bioengineering and Health Technologies. This means they will be positioned at the forefront of biomedical innovation and become part of a community of professionals in the field while they study.

Students can tailor the course to suit their interests and research project. Optional modules range from Biomechanics to the use of virtual reality and 3D visualisation approaches.

For further information, the candidate can visit the university’s official website - https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/courses/2022/bioengineering-msc
