Bioengineering at Loughborough University - UCAS

Course summary

Bioengineering uses engineering practices and principles to analyse and design new products, processes, tools and techniques. This helps to bridge gaps across biological and healthcare challenges. It plays an integral role in global issues where the challenge requires a bioengineering response. Our Bioengineering degree draws from expertise across many academic departments. It will give you a thorough grounding in engineering systems and applications relevant to bioengineering. You will also gain a sound understanding of human anatomy, physiology and biological functions and the ability to apply your knowledge and skills to bioengineering problems. The field is rapidly developing. Bioengineers work in a variety of global sectors developing products and creating technology to help people achieve a better quality of life and break barriers in medical and sporting achievements. Examples include prosthetics and biomaterial implants, software engineering for advanced and 3D medical imaging, image-guided and robot-assisted surgery, regenerative medicine against incurable diseases, tissue engineering such as bioengineered skin for wounds, 3D bioprinting, medical device development and new assistive technologies (wearable technology, mobile and e-health). At Loughborough, this course will take you from the fundamental science and engineering to the cutting-edge of the subject. During your time with us, you will have access to our state-of-the-art experimental labs to complement your lectures. In year three, you will have the opportunity to complete a research project on a specific topic of interest supervised by a member of the academic staff. What's the difference between MEng and BEng? The first two years of the MEng and BEng share the same content to ensure a thorough grounding in engineering and biological concepts, with a good mix of theory, application and practical content from day one. The MEng differs from the BEng course in the third and fourth years, and MEng students are required to study a wider range of technical subjects with additional depth. MEng students also undertake an advanced team research project.

Modules

For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.

Assessment method

Students are assessed by a mixture of coursework and written examinations. The course is highly interactive with a wide range of teaching methods so assessments vary from module to module, but overall the approximate ratio is 60/40 exams/coursework. Modules containing design-orientated work, individual and group projects are also assessed by oral presentation and in some cases poster/video presentation to allow entrepreneurial, team working and leadership skills development.

Additional fee information

The fees stated above are for the 2024/25 academic year; fees for 2025/26 have not yet been confirmed by the UK government. We will update this information as soon as it is available. Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to increase to take into account inflationary pressures. Tuition fees cover the cost of your teaching, assessment and operating University facilities such as the library, IT equipment and other support services. University fees and charges can be paid in advance and there are several methods of payment, including online payments and payment by instalment. While the cost of your tuition covers lots of things, it doesn’t cover everything. For instance this course doesn’t cover the cost of any stationary, printing, books or re-assessments which you might need.
