Biomedical Engineering

The MSc in Biomedical Engineering is designed to provide an advanced educational experience in biomedical engineering. The programme focuses on developing advanced technical knowledge and skills, coupled with real-world implementation through research and innovation. Combining a substantial research component with instruction through taught modules and a significant project-based learning component, the aim of the programme is to generate the future leaders of the international medical technology industry, academic research and teaching in biomedical engineering. The programme builds on the already highly successful BE and ME programmes in Biomedical Engineering at NUI Galway. It combines state-of- the-art graduate level taught modules with modern medical technology research. The programme is closely related to the ME in Biomedical Engineering, but is broader in scope and also includes a substantial one-year 30 ECTS research thesis. The MSc is specifically designed to appeal to Irish and international students with a variety of relevant educational backgrounds, particularly those who have a strong foundation in mathematics and engineering from their undergraduate education.
