Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Technology is a key enabler for medicine and health. Bioengineering at Brunel is investigating new technology to increase the standard of healthcare provision and access to it. The research is delivering innovative smart devices; modelling and software systems that enable greater access, precision and efficiency in therapy and diagnosis; and improved restoration of function and rehabilitation opportunities for patients.

Conducted by multidisciplinary research teams, drawn from our pool of experts in engineering and clinical professions, the research is delivering real solutions compatible with the unmet needs in practice. Bioengineering at Brunel is well supported by premier clinical teams both nationally and internationally. Top, and leading, clinical practitioners and clinical centres of excellence are an essential ingredient to augment growth in this research field. We will be appointing more visiting professors for research to both acknowledge and reinforce the participation of internationally leading clinical experts. We welcome all multidisciplinary topics in the area of Biomedical Engineering.
