The Biomedical Engineering MSc is open to graduates with a good first degree in any physical science (such as engineering, maths, physics, chemistry) but is also open to graduates of the life sciences or medicine, providing it can be demonstrated that they have appropriate mathematical ability.
Important note: All applicants will be expected to know the following mathematical concepts and present a statement in the online application form of their mathematical ability.
- Functions: graphing, function of a function, inequality, discontinuity, symmetry, multi-valued functions, trigonometric and hyperbolic functions, inverse functions, partial fraction expansions.
- Co-ordinate geometry: Cartesian and polar co-ordinates, rotation and translation of axes, conic sections.
- Vector algebra: basic concepts, scalar and vector products, shortest distance between two lines, vector equation of a plane, differentiation of vectors.
- Linear algebra: matrices and determinants, matrix vector equations, matrices as linear transformations.
- Complex numbers: complex arithmetic, polar and exponential form, De Moivre's theorem, roots of complex numbers.
- Differential and integral calculus: differentiation, maxima and minima, function of a function, total derivative, chain rule, integration.
- Series and limits: sequences, types of series and tests for convergence, Maclaurin and Taylor series.
- Differential equations: order and degree of differential equations, first and second order differential equations, separation of variables.
- Mathematics for Biomedical Engineering - mathematic questions.
