Choose Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences if you want to study a technologically advanced and specialist subject, building on a strong foundation in biology, chemistry and physiology.

You’ll develop a core understanding of a biomaterial’s response to being placed in a  physiological environment, and the response of the biological system to the presence of a biomaterial. You’ll study the physiological environment down to the cellular and molecular level, basic human physiological and pathological processes, and the science behind how a material’s structural, physical and chemical properties can be manipulated to meet a specific need.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to discover and design new biomaterials and therapies in healthcare.

Professional recognition

This programme is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). 


The most enjoyable aspects of my course were probably the academics who lectured us and our problem-based learning modules. My degree gave me a wealth of experience and a set of transferable skills…doing an engineering degree has allowed me to learn skills and different ways of approaching things.
