The Biomedical Engineering department from the University of Strathclyde is an international centre of excellence in postgraduate teaching and research.
Postgraduate education and research is directed at the application of the methods and ideas of engineering and the physical and biological sciences in medicine and surgery.
We have a particular emphasis on clinically-related research which ranges from basic investigations to direct clinical applications.
Much of our research is based on active collaboration with clinical units, academic departments and industry in Glasgow along with other areas of the UK and overseas.
As a student here, you'll play a vital role in the development of innovative research, enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and have the opportunity to network with industrialists, academic experts and clinical collaborators.
Visits to local clinical centres along with lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas are a key part of our courses. You'll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical experts to help advise and further your career.
Our postgraduate education includes research degrees that can be studied over one year (MPhil, MRes), three years (PhD) or four years (EngD). Our external research is supported by funding from Research Councils, the Scottish Government, charities, commerce and industry within the UK, EU and internationally in countries such as the US and Japan.
Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD) programme
As part of your PhD degree, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD).
This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here.
It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:
- the knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
- the personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
- the standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
- working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences
All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your doctorate, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.
