The priority of the education brief at the NCBES is training the future generation of research scientists through postgraduate research. In addition to supervising Postgraduate students, Centre researchers supervise final year projects for undergraduate students in science and engineering.
The centre has a major impact on education and training programmes in NUIG and offers the taught MSc in Biomedical Science which has an annual intake of 14-20 students. The Masters programme, and the incorporation of a number of modules relevant to biomedical science and biomedical engineering in undergraduate programmes, reflects the focus on, and importance of, biomedical science and engineering at NUIG.
The NCBES seminar series sees Irish and International researchers visit the Centre to share their knowledge and expertise.
