A new emphasis on research in the medical devices industry has created a need for engineers and scientists who have a deeper knowledge of biomedical engineering. Already there are a range of undergraduate programmes available to meet this need but many companies have indicated that a Postgraduate qualification in Biomedical Engineering was very desirable. It focusses on an industrial sector in which the island of Ireland has developed a global reputation for quality and excellence.

The M.Sc Course is jointly taught by the Colleges of Engineering and Informatics and Electronics at the University of Limerick, Trinity College, Dublin and University College Dublin, with Medical Science input to UL from the RCSI. TCD Medical School provides Medical Science inputs for students at TCD. The joint nature of the Course brings together the world class expertise available at the participating institutions in a novel way.

Students who undertake this course will:

* Develop a thorough understanding of advanced principles in Biomedical Engineering
* Awareness of current and leading-edge topics in Biomedical Engineering;
* To understand the biological bases of the assessments routinely performed by Biomedical Engineers;
* Develop critical review skills, in the area of Bio-Medical Engineering
* To develop the ability to critically evaluate current advances in issues and controversies in the area of Biomedical Engineering.
