Master of Magnetic Resonance Technology

Overview

Gain an advanced understanding of the physics and technology surrounding magnetic resonance, and be in demand here and overseas.

UQ's Master of Magnetic Resonance Technology is a 1.5 year full-time program designed for professionals wanting to gain an advanced understanding of the physics and technology surrounding magnetic resonance. You'll have access to the most comprehensive and advanced range of magnetic resonance instrumentation in the Southern Hemisphere, including three whole-body scanners, several High Resolution NMR spectrometers, solid state and EPR instruments and micro-imaging and animal imaging systems.

In a multidisciplinary environment, you'll learn from experienced radiographers, medical practitioners, medical physicists, chemists and engineers about the physics of magnetic resonance and image formation, the components of modern MRI scanners and specialist practical skills essential for a dynamic career in this field.

You'll be exposed to new techniques which are not yet part of standard clinical practice. Plus you'll apply your knowledge to projects that make innovative use of magnetic resonance, and gain the skills to assess the needs of a radiography practice and the capability to meet these needs with equipment from various manufacturers.

MRI physicists, MR technologists, image processors, engineers and biomedical engineers are in demand within Australia and internationally. UQ graduates have found employment in leadership positions in hospitals, private practice and research facilities.
