New world-leading MSc course dedicated to Biofluid Mechanics


The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow is inviting applications for the newly – launched MSc Biofluid Mechanics course starting in September 2017.

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.

This newly-launched MSc course is the first one-year taught course dedicated to Biofluid Mechanics. It 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

The one-year full-time programme offers students a unique opportunity to lead the next generation of highly-skilled postgraduates that will form a new model worldwide for academia – with world-class research knowledge, industry – with highly-competitive skills in both biomedical engineering and fluid dynamics, and for society – with better training to work with clinicians.

The course is taught by the Department of Biomedical Engineering, with input from other departments across the Faculty of Engineering and the wider University. Students will be supported throughout the course by a strong team of academics with global connections and will benefit from a unique training and an innovative teaching and learning environment.

The project provides MSc students with 
the opportunity to experience the
challenges and rewards of independent
 study in a topic of their own choice; the 
project may involve an extended 
literature review, experimental and/or
computational work.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is ranked No. 1 in the Complete University Guide League Tables 2018 for Medical Technology.
Eligibility – a first or second-class Honours degree in engineering, physical science, or mathematics. English language minimum score of IELTS 6.5 (with no component below 5.5).

Fee – 2017/18 – £19,100 for International students

Scholarship – The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Strathclyde is offering a substantial number of scholarships for new self-funded, international (non-EU) fee paying students with excellent academic qualifications who have applied for a relevant course of study and are commencing their studies from September 2017 or later on in the 2017-2018 academic year.

£2,700 scholarships towards course tuition fees are available for an MSc programme. Students must achieve a minimum of a 2:1 (or equivalent) in their undergraduate degree to be considered.
