Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences
MSci (J5B3, sandwich), BSc (J5B1, sandwich), MSci (J5B4), BSc (J5B2)
The Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences programmes at QMUL are designed to equip students with an understanding of the complexity and aggressive nature of the biological environment, the varied ways in which biomaterials can respond to this environment, the physiological control mechanisms and biomaterials properties that can modulate the host response, the uses and limitations of current and emerging biomedical materials, the tools that can be used to help predict or monitor behavior and the importance of interdisciplinary thinking, ethics and regulatory approval in next generation biomedical materials development and optimisation. All of which will be underpinned by knowledge of the structure-properties relationship in materials, how this relates materials performance and life time to its synthesis/chemistry and processing routes, and knowledge of basic human physiology and pathology.
We offer both a three-year BSc degree in Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences and a four-year MSci degree. The MSci includes an additional year of study that involves a group project.
All our Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences degree programmes will be accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, which means students can progress to chartered engineer status (CEng).
