Core modules currently offered as part of this course include:
* Surface Engineering and Characterisation
* Human Structure and Function
* Cell Structure and Function for Engineers
* Biomedical Applications of Biomaterials
You will also have the option of taking modules in management skills:
* Information Technology for Engineering
In addition, there are a number of modules in Advanced Applications, covering topics such as:
* Cell-Material Interactions
* Spinal Biomechanics and Instrumentation
* Biomaterials Modelling
* Advanced Biomaterial Structures
* Advanced Materials Characterisation
Please note that all module details are subject to change.
Once you have completed the taught components of the course, you will undertake a major individual research-based project related to an aspect of bioengineering.
Specific projects vary considerably, reflecting the range of bioengineering activities in Nottingham and the interests of students. Projects with industrial links are encouraged.
The MSc in Bioengineering can be taken on a full-time basis over one year (September to September) or part-time over two to three years.
Although the course is run by the University of Nottingham, the part-time course offers access to modules at Strathclyde and Leeds Universities, developed as an initiative within the Medical Devices Faraday Partnership. This takes advantage of centres of excellence for each topic. The University of Nottingham awards the degree and administers the course in both cases.
You will complete twelve taught modules (worth 120 credits) and a research project (worth 60 credits). The individual research project is undertaken either at the University or in an industrial setting.
Teaching includes lectures, seminars and laboratory sessions. Module assessment is by a variety of methods, including assignments and both open and closed book examinations.
Short courses taken from the MSc are available individually for continuing professional development. Completion of such courses can be converted retrospectively to contribute to the award of MSc should attendees subsequently decide to take
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
