Course Description

Choose Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences if you want to study a technologically advanced and specialist subject, building on a strong foundation in biology, chemistry and physiology.

You’ll develop a core understanding of a biomaterial’s response to being placed in a  physiological environment, and the response of the biological system to the presence of a biomaterial. You’ll study the physiological environment down to the cellular and molecular level, basic human physiological and pathological processes, and the science behind how a material’s structural, physical and chemical properties can be manipulated to meet a specific need.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to discover and design new biomaterials and therapies in healthcare.

Course Content

You can complete your Biomaterials for Biomedical Sciences degree in three, four or five years. If you are a BSc student and choose to do a year in industry or study abroad, this will take place in Year 3 and Year 3 modules will instead be studied in Year 4. If you are an MSci student and choose to do a year in industry or study abroad, this will take place in Year 4 and Year 4 modules will be studied in Year 5.

YEAR 1

You'll study a range of core principals that includes:

  • Biomolecules of Life
  • Clinical problems in biomedical engineering and materials
  • Materials Science 1: Properties of Matter
  • Materials Science 2: Processing and Applications
  • Molecules to Materials
  • The Human Cell

 

YEAR 2

  • Chemistry for Materials
  • Mathematics for Materials Scientists
  • Medical Physiology
  • Polymers
  • Structural Characterisation
  • Student Centred Learning 2
  • Surfaces and interfaces in Biomedical Materials

 

YEAR 3

In the third year, students undertake an individual design project, plus a group design project alongside four taught modules. The project allows students to apply the skills and techniques learnt from previous years’ studies and to focus on an area of design that particularly interests them.

Taught modules cover topics including:

  • Introduction to Human Pathology
  • Manufacturing Processes
  • Materials Selection in Design
  • Science of Biocompatibility
  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  • Tissue Mechanics
