Our courses help you to apply core engineering principles and knowledge to create technical solutions to real-world clinical-problems.
We offer different ways to study including full-time undergraduate and postgraduate courses, short courses for continuing professional development and distance learning.
We also have a long history in international outreach, being renowned world-wide for our research and educational programmes for over 40 years..
BSc Honours in Prosthetics & Orthotics
Our four-year BSc Honours in Prosthetics & Orthotics qualifies you to register with the Health Professions Council as a ‘prosthetist / orthotist'. We're one of only two Universities in the UK that train prosthetists.
BEng/MEng in Biomedical Engineering
We offer a four year (BEng) or a five year (MEng) degree in biomedical engineering. These are cross-subject programmes that will enable you to apply core mechanical and electrical engineering knowledge to real-world clinical problems.
Postgraduate taught courses
Our postgraduate taught programmes will allow you to play a vital role in the development of innovative research, enjoy expert facilities and have the opportunity to network with industrialists, academic experts and clinical partners.
- MSc/PgDip/PgCert Biofluid Mechanics
- MSc/PgDip/PgCert Biomedical Engineering
- MSc/PgDip/PgCert Medical Devices
- Prosthetics & Orthotics
- MSc/PgDip/PgCert Rehabilitation Studies (distance learning)
Postgraduate research degrees
PhD & MPhil
You can study for a degree in biomedical engineering within any of our three major research areas:
- Rehabilitation Engineering
- Cell, Tissue & Organ Engineering
- Medical Diagnostic Devices & Instrumentations
External research is supported by funding from the Research Councils, the Scottish Government, charities and commerce and industry within the UK, EU and internationally in countries such as the US and Japan.
Continuing professional development/short courses
We're committed to sharing our unique knowledge and experience with the wider community.
We have developed a number of short courses to meet the professional development needs of the biomedical community, including those in the clinical, academic and commercial sectors.These courses are of value to physicians, surgeons, therapists and clinical scientists as well as prosthetists and orthotists.
There's opportunities to take part in visits and exchanges with leading research institutions. This year staff and students have been to institutions in Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and the USA.
Established research programmes are in place with partner institutions in the USA, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, including:
- Sino-UK Research Partnership for PhD Studies between the Universities of Strathclyde, UK, and the
We welcome enquiries from international research and teaching institutions and companies about our educational programmes, including staff and student exchanges. Please get in touch with Dr Richard Black.
