PhDs in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at UCL
Study for a PhD
The PhD programme involves 3–4 years (more for part time students) of original research supervised by a senior member of the department. Entrance requirements are a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. The Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering department is engaged in multi-disciplinary research, so PhD candidates are accepted with qualifications in a variety of disciplines. At any one time the department has around 60-80 PhD students.
Research themes of the department are:
- Biomedical optics
- Continence and skin technology
- Functional electrical stimulation and implanted devices
- Magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy
- Medical image computing including 3D graphics
- Neurophysiology including electrical impedance tomography.
- Radiation physics including analysis, detection and imaging
- Development and application of innovative x-ray imaging methods
Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging
Our Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Medical Imaging provides research training in this diverse and multi-disciplinary field. The training will involve taught courses in the first year as part of an MRes programme followed by a research project for the
remainder of the 4 year programme. Students on the programme will form part of
an interactive network of researchers across many disciplines and will benefit
from the strengths of UCL in the healthcare field.
Students entering the programme with a Masters degree in a relevant subject can enter the programme at the second year and do 3 years of research leading to a PhD.
