This programme is the first taught Masters programme in medical visualisation in the UK. Offered jointly by the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art, it combines actual cadaveric dissection with 3D digital reconstruction, interaction and visualisation.
* MSc: 12 months full-time;
Career opportunities exist within the commercial healthcare device manufacturer, the public and private healthcare sectors, as well as in academic medical visualisation research. Students with medical, biomedical, anatomy, or health professional backgrounds will be able to gain 3D visualisation skills that will enhance their portfolio of abilities; students with computer science or 3D graphics background will be involved in the design and development of healthcare related products through digital technology, eg diagnostic and clinical applications, creating content involving medical visualisation, simulation, cardiac pacemakers, and biomechanically related products for implantation, such as knee, hip and shoulder joint replacements.
You will split your time between the Glasgow School of Art (Digital Design Studio) and the University of Glasgow (Laboratory of Human Anatomy). The programme is structured into three stages.
Stage one: digital technologies applied to medical visualisation (delivered by the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art)
* 3D modelling and animation
* Applications in medical visualisation
* Volumetric and 3D surface visualisation
* Core research skills for postgraduates.
Stage two: human anatomy (delivered by the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at the University of Glasgow).
* Introduction to anatomy
* Structure and function of the human body
* Cadaveric dissection techniques.
In stage three you will complete a self-directed final project, supported throughout with individual supervision.
You should have an Honours degree or equivalent in the following disciplines
* Life sciences, medical or biomedical science, e.g. anatomy, physiology, dentistry or dental technology, forensic anthropology, molecular biological degrees and the allied health professionals
* computer science, 3D visualisation, computer graphics, health informatics, mathematics, and physics
* medical illustration, 3D design, product design, digital media, digital arts, 3D modelling and animation
* or equivalent professional practice. However, high calibre graduates from other disciplines may be considered if they are able to demonstrate an interest and ability in the field of medical visualisation.
