Biomedical Technology

Robert Gordon University


In the first Semester, the core and advanced level of biomedical technology related modules (each 15 credits) are delivered through lectures, tutorials and the laboratory sessions. In the project (60 credits), you will tackle problems involving the design of biomedical devices whereas in the group project (30 credits), you will work as a team to design biomedical systems, such as blood glucose monitor, and prepare the quality audit report for seeking device approval as required by the biomedical industry regulators.

Both projects involve a substantial written report and an oral presentation. The MSc projects are scheduled in the month following the completion of the taught modules and project titles relevant to industry requirements are selected by you during your placement within the biomedical industry.

You can exit after Stage 1 with PgCert Biomedical Technology.

You can exit after Stage 2 with PgDip Biomedical Technology.
