Biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with medical and biological sciences to design and create equipment, devices, computer systems, and software used in healthcare. A master’s in Bio & Biomedical Engineering allows students to apply selected theories, concepts and methods to research procedures of the branch in order to deal with theoretical or practical problems. Graduates from Bio & Biomedical Engineering Master's programmes (M.Sc.) span many professional fields, including bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics and clinical engineering. Students often land top positions in the medical device industry and engineering consulting firms. Some start their own medical technology companies or go on to advanced graduate studies in engineering and professional studies in medicine.
