Course Information

Why study biomedical engineering with us

Our multi-disciplinary biomedical engineering course mixes engineering with medicine. This provides you with a solid understanding of the technological developments taking place in medicine, engineering, physics, maths and computer science.

You’ll build on your previous experience in applied mathematics, physics, or other sciences . During your course you will enhance your engineering knowledge and gain specialist skills which will help you to design and improve existing and emergent systems, devices and treatments.

Our degree has been specifically designed to meet the standards set by the collaboration between the UK Quality Assurance Agency and the Engineering Council alongside the demands of healthcare providers. You’ll gain specialist biomedical engineering skills to follow in the footsteps of graduates who’ve forged careers in clinical engineering, biomechanics, drug design, and pharmaceuticals.

Develop your biomedical engineering skills

We’ve got fully equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories for medical device design and human performance measurement. You’ll also have access to the facilities in our human-computer interaction research department. It’s here that we’re making significant healthcare developments, which include the rehabilitation of stroke victims and amputees.

You’ll gain valuable professional experience – and receive a Diploma of Industrial Studies – by taking a work placement with the NHS or one of our industrial partners between years two and three.

Our highly experienced team of professional engineers and qualified healthcare practitioners are on hand to give you the support you need to succeed in your studies and establish your career in biomedical engineering.

If you’re applying for our four-year MEng biomedical engineering degree, you’ll not only be able to gain a masters qualification once you’ve completed the fourth year of the degree, you’ll also be able to receive student loan funding to cover your course fees.

Biomedical engineering studies gives you the ultimate stepping-stone to a number of global career opportunities in a rapidly expanding field. You’ll graduate from our course with career options in a variety of sections, including cellular, tissue, genetic, clinical or rehabilitation engineering, bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics, and medical imaging.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

A degree in biomedical engineering is a stepping-stone to an increasing number of global career opportunities. The larger equipment developers (Phillips, Siemens, Draeger) focus their activities in mainland Europe, though opportunities for careers in sales and technical support exist in the UK. The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) has a large membership of small and medium sized companies that take graduates for design and development work.

You will possess knowledge and skills useful in a range of career opportunities but you could also choose to undertake further training to provide support roles in the NHS or private health sector.

Previous graduates have found employment in a wide variety of settings, particularly within research, laboratory-based work and biomedical product design companies. You could be employed in the NHS or a private company. Career opportunities include:

  • Cellular, tissue, genetic, clinical or rehabilitation engineering

  • Bioinstrumentation

  • Biomaterials

  • Biomechanics

  • Drug design and delivery

  • Medical imaging

  • Orthopaedic surgery

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Systems physiology
