This programme requires International students who need a Tier 4 visa to obtain an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. Because there is not enough time to get this and get a visa before the September 2019 entry point we are unfortunately not able to take any further applications for September 2019 from International students who will require a Tier 4 visa. Any interested applicants should instead apply for the next entry point after September 2019. For further information on ATAS and the visa process please see:
Home, EU or International applicants who do not need a Tier 4 visa are welcome to apply for September 2019.
The aim of our Biomedical Genetics and Tissue Engineering MSc is to create qualified biomedical engineers who can help in the design, development, operation and research of complex medical devices for the modern biomedical and healthcare industry.
Gaining a deeper insight into genetics and tissue engineering, you will also cover biomechanics and biomaterials, and will learn about genomic technologies and molecular mechanisms.
You’ll be in demand in the area of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the characterisation of tissue.
Teaching is delivered by enthusiastic world-leading biomedical research experts, and enhanced by clinical professionals who are part of our extensive network of industry and hospital collaborative partners. With our strong industry links, some projects are provided by hospital consultants and are based on solving practical biomedical problems and challenges.
Researchers at Brunel are working in a range of research areas, including tissue engineering, cell culture, microfluidics, and electrospinning techniques for developing novel materials. Their up-to-date knowledge will feed directly into your learning.
You will have access to fully equipped laboratories, with excellent biomedical engineering research facilities. In the computer lab, you’ll have the opportunity to develop hands-on skills using modern computer software to solve problems relevant to biomedical issues.
This biomedical engineering master’s course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and is studied full-time over one year.
