Master of Science (MSc) in Biomedical Engineering




What will I learn?

The new MSc (Biomedical Engineering) programme aims to nurture holistic engineers in healthcare technology development and healthcare.

With the growing demand for healthcare innovation in recent years as well as the projected long-term prominence of healthcare issues in our aging society, biomedical engineers play crucial roles in the expanding healthcare sector. For example, in times of a pandemic, biomedical engineers contribute to all aspects of tackling the disease, including detection, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, monitoring and surveillance.

Biomedical Engineering integrates the principles of engineering disciplines with biomedical sciences to foster new knowledge and create new innovations in technologies and applications to enhance the quality of healthcare. We develop new medical technology and biotechnology through cutting edge research to advance medical care and scientific discovery in biomedical sciences.

Through our discoveries and knowledge creation, we provide an integrated education where we equip future engineers with the ability to analyse and address challenges in healthcare with both engineering and biomedical perspectives.
