One of the top ranked courses of its kind in the country, this course is aimed at students interested in a range of career opportunities in the biomedical engineering sector. Becoming a biomedical engineer promises an exciting career, bridging the advances in biomedical sciences with professional skills in delivering engineering projects within a rapidly growing field. Our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institute of Measurement and Control and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.
Biomedical Engineering applies the principles of science, engineering and medicine directly to the complex medical technologies used in the prognosis, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the sick and injured. Biomedical engineers also require managerial and communication skills and an awareness of the economic, environmental and social implications of their activity. Our courses are designed to provide excellent training in all these areas. Becoming a biomedical engineer promises an exciting career, bridging the advances in biomedical sciences with professional skills in delivering engineering projects within a rapidly growing field.
Recent graduates have joined employers such as Philips Healthcare, Covidien, Siemens, Genetic Microdevices, AstraZeneca, Intertek and major hospitals in the NHS.
On the Biomedical Engineering course, you will cover a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry. Subjects covered include measurement, data analysis, mechatronics, biosignal and image processing, medical physics, biomedical instrumentation and biomedical optics.
If you are registered on the BEng (Hons) course and obtain good grades at the end of your second or third year you may transfer to the MEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering course.
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.
The third year includes biosignal and image processing, medical physics and biomedical instrumentation, together with biomedical optics.
