Course Introduction

The integrated MEng (Hons) degree in Biomedical Engineering covers a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry and draws on City’s long'standing expertise in technology and healthcare. We also offer a BEng (Hons) degree in Biomedical Engineering. This course is highly inter'disciplinary. Students learn from academics of the School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering and the School of Health Sciences, hospital consultants and experts from the medical industry. Information is delivered in lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory classes. Learning involves a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational study. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. Group learning and communication skills are emphasised through design studies and student presentations.

Course Modules

Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs. Students begin to specialise in Biomedical Engineering in year two while also studying measurement, data analysis and mechatronics. Students registered on the BEng degree, who average at least 60 per cent at the end of year two, are encouraged to transfer to the MEng degree. The third year includes biosignal and image processing, medical physics and biomedical instrumentation, together with biomedical optics. The final year of the integrated Masters involves a major individual research project and group design exercises as well as modules covering biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical sensors, bioinformatics and telemedicine.
