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.
In the first year you will study the fundamental principles of engineering that underpin the design of medical equipment. With a number of core modules, you will receive a thorough introduction to biomedical engineering as well as study topics covering engineering and medical aspects of the degree. In the second year you will continue to study these fundamental engineering principles. In the third and final year, you will undertake an individual project work which will give you the opportunity to work in a team environment with members of the School's research and clinical teams. The individual project is a fantastic way for you to explore an area of biomedical engineering that is of particular interest to you.
