The programme’s objective is to provide students with
the underpinning knowledge and practical skills to pursue
a successful career in biomedical science. The course is
designed for those who wish to follow careers as biomedical
scientists in research, the health service, or in the wider
context of biomedical science (including medical technologies,
biopharmaceuticals and other healthcare industries). Students
will use state-of-the-art technologies and learn a range of skills
from scientific, engineering and clinical disciplines to understand
and investigate questions originating in biology and medicine.
You will be introduced to science and engineering disciplines
you will not have covered in your undergraduate studies. You
will have access to some of Ireland’s leading researchers in this
area. Industry placement: Students have the opportunity to
apply for competitive 6–12-month industry placements, which,
if successful, will replace the research dissertation module.
Students undertaking an industry placement will be registered on
the MSc into a second year for the duration of the placement.
