Bioelectronic and biosensor technology exists at the interface between electronics engineering and the science of bioanalytical chemistry. An understanding of bioelectronics is important for the study of biomolecules, cells and organisms, particularly their electronic/ionic properties and behaviour.
The application of this knowledge in the creation of biosensors is currently driving a revolution in biomedicine through the development of advanced diagnostic techniques which can be used at the point of care.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent, in engineering, chemistry or another relevant physical science.

This MSc aims to provide the next generation of researchers and innovators with the skills and knowledge to succeed in this challenging and fast-moving field.
Edinburgh’s position at the forefront of research in engineering, chemistry and medicine means that students have access to academics and researchers with state-of-the-art knowledge.
Much of this research is of an interdisciplinary nature and so there is a need for researchers and technologists who are able to bridge the gaps between these different disciplines and communicate across boundaries.
This programme is run over 12 months, with two semesters of taught courses followed by a research project leading to a masters thesis.
With our excellent employability record and internationally respected reputation, the University of Edinburgh is a reliable choice for developing your engineering career.
Graduates will be prepared to work as interdisciplinary research engineers or scientists solving problems at the boundary between the physical and the life sciences, or to pursue advanced degrees in a wide range of subjects from engineering to medicine.
