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.
