Title of the Programme
The programme shall be master of biomedical laboratory sciences MEng. (BLS)
Work in industry-standard facilities, gaining an understanding of human disease from the biological mechanisms that underpin disease pathology to the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The course provides grounding in a range of scientific disciplines applicable to modern Biomedical Laboratory Science including cell biology, molecular biology, immunology and microbiology. You will develop an understanding of the pathogenesis of different diseases from a cellular to whole system level and discuss methods for the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The program is integrated to provide all the Biomedical laboratory science elements that medical laboratory scientist practitioner requires in the areas of communication skills and information technology, medical microbiology, immunology, and immunogenetics, molecular diagnostics including Bioinformatics, hematology and transfusion medicine, and Clinical biochemistry. Course in biostatistics and research methodology and research ethics, will able the students to design the research protocols for testing their hypothesis through an investigatory and analytical thinking approach. The didactic courses of all elements of training will be concentrated in the first year of the program to optimize the use of faculty time and help the students to lay strong theoretical foundations of medical laboratory science. Quality management and systems based practices are important elements of the educational program during the laboratory rotations in the second year of the program. The last semester will be devoted to research work in any one subspecialty leading to submission.
