This integrated programme is designed to prepare and support students for a strong and rewarding experience in their selected engineering discipline, Biomedical Engineering, immediately aligning students to the fundamentals of engineering from the moment they enrol. In addition to providing all necessary science, technology, engineering and mathematics background to allow students to confidently enter year one of the BEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering programme, the first year of study will also develop transferable skills such as communication, professionalism, teamwork and creativity, and provide an excellent transition period in preparation for learning and teaching methodologies used in the UK to support high engagement and achievement in the discipline. The first two years are taken in common with three other engineering disciplines (Chemical, Civil & Structural, Mechanical) and therefore prior to being immersed in the technical depth of your selected engineering area in the final two years of study, your education will include an understanding of the relation and importance of other engineering areas to your own discipline - invaluable in the modern team-based multidisciplinary engineering sector. Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate (CDIO) forms a core element of programme delivery, based around developing innovative and sustainable solutions to real-world problems and closely linked to our well-developed industrial collaborations. Professional Accreditation The BEng (Hons) in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and can lead to Chartered Engineer (CEng) accreditation. This course is recognised by ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education). Placement This Biomedical Engineering programme offers you the opportunity to take up a placement year working in industry in your fourth year. The placement year is an excellent way to develop your professional experience, build industry contacts, and gain insight into the day-to-day work of a professional biomedical engineer.
