Biofluid mechanics applies engineering, mathematical and physical principles of fluids to solve complex and multifaceted problems primarily in biology and medicine, but also in aerospace and robotics.
Our new MRes course covers a wide range of multidisciplinary training on the kinematics and dynamics of fluids related to biological systems, medical science, cardiovascular devices, numerical modelling and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), focusing on research. The MRes differs from an MSc in that you'll have the opportunity to perform multidisciplinary research for a longer time, preparing you for a research career and equipping you with world-class research knowledge.
The course is taught by the Department of Biomedical Engineering, with input from other departments across the faculty and the University.
During the course, you'll be supported by a strong team of academics with worldwide connections and you'll be offered a unique training and innovative teaching and learning environment.
Course director: Dr Asimina Kazakidi, Lecturer in Biofluid Mechanics
Course co-director: Professor Dimitris Drikakis, Executive Dean of Engineering and Professor of Engineering Science
MRes course dedicated
to Biofluid Mechanics.
What you'll study
This one-year programme consists of compulsory and optional classes in the first two semesters. Each class has timetabled contact hours, delivered mainly in lectures, laboratories and tutorials. The MRes research project will be chosen and started in semester one with guidance from a supervisor. Throughout the year you'll be working on your project.
- Professional Studies in Biomedical Engineering
- Research Methodology
- MRes project
- Biofluid Mechanics
- Industrial Software
- Medical Science for Engineering
- Haemodynamics for Engineers
- Numerical Modelling in Biomedical Engineering
- Cardiovascular Devices
- The Medical Device Regulatory Process
- Entrepreneurship & Commercialisation in Biomedical Engineering
- Introduction to Biomechanics
- Finite Element Methods for Boundary Value Problems and Approximation
- Mathematical Biology & Marine Population Modelling
- Design Management
- Risk Management
During the course, academics and industrial speakers will be invited as part of the training. You'll also benefit from departmental seminars and knowledge exchange events.
From financial advice to our IT facilities, we have loads of different support for all students here at our University. Get all the information you need at Strathlife.
PhD Advanced Algorithms for Breast Cancer Diagnosis from Tactile Images
A 42-month fully-funded PhD project, supported by EPSRC and industry partner PPS, focused on developing a system for automatically diagnosing and classifying lesions associated with breast cancer from tactile images.
Development of multi-sensor measurement for characterizing biological suspensions and tissue
The project will focus on the development of novel multi-sensor measurement-analysis platform which integrate optics (instrument configuration) and theories of light propagation through particulate media to extract physical and chemical information of biological suspensions.
