Studying Biomedical Engineering (ME) at the National University of Ireland

The Master of Engineering (ME) at NUI Galway is part of an integrated (Bachelors + Masters) 4+1 programme of study, meeting the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation. Successfully completing this (level 9) ME course, as part of an accredited 4+1 structure, will allow you to achieve the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status upon graduation.

The ME programme on its own is a 60ECTS one academic year course of study. Graduates with an honours degree in a cognate Engineering discipline may be eligible to take the ME. This will be of interest to graduates who wish to study more advanced topics in their core engineering discipline. Applicants wishing to use the ME programme as part of their CEng certification should be aware that professional accreditation is assessed by the Engineering Councils on the basis of the aggregate periods of study (Level 8 + Level 9), and not on the Masters year alone. Candidates need to satisfy themselves that their undergraduate (Level 8) degree meets the relevant standards.

The ME (Master of Engineering) programme in Biomedical Engineering is designed to give advanced technical, analytical, and transferrable knowledge and skills in biomedical engineering to graduates who already hold an undergraduate degree in engineering.

The programme is delivered over one academic year and consists of 40 ECTS (approx. 8 modules) of taught modules, involving the ongoing and world-class biomedical research at NUI Galway, and a 20 ECTS thesis project. This medical device based project is conducted in partnership with the highly successful BioInnovate programme and focuses on developing advanced technical knowledge and skills and real-world implementation of these in terms of innovation, commercialization and business development.

The ME is designed to allow engineering graduates who hold an internationally recognised degree (under the Washington Accord) to meet the criteria for Chartered Engineer professional accreditation (by Engineers Ireland) under the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation. The programme is closely related to the MSc in Biomedical Engineering which is aimed at applicants who do not hold the required engineering undergraduate qualification.

The ME programme is interdisciplinary in nature; it is based around our core teaching and research expertise in biomedical engineering and is enhanced by direct links with other engineering disciplines, science, and medicine. We work closely with our industrial partners in the medical device hub centred around Galway.
