Biomedical Engineering at University of Kent - UCAS

Course summary

Business and research environments need engineers who can design complete solutions involving complex integrated systems. Biomedical Engineering at Kent educates engineers that can develop systems used in medical practice and biology research. This cross-disciplinary programme is designed for students with an equally strong interest in engineering and biology/medicine. Drawing from our established expertise in engineering technologies and from the research synergies with the School of Biosciences, this degree produces engineers with a solid knowledge in biology and medical science. Why study a Biomedical Engineering degree at Kent

  • Biomedical Engineering is an exciting, interdisciplinary course at the interface between engineering, biology and medicine
  • You’ll build bioscience-related electronic devices, graduating as an engineer capable of designing complete solutions involving complex integrated systems
  • Seminars delivered by experts currently working in the field give you an insight into career options
  • Our teaching is based on leading-edge research using case studies which incorporate hot topics within industry and emerging technologies.
What you’ll study
  • In the first year, you gain a broad grounding in biomedical engineering, including human physiology, biomedical skills, robotics and engineering mathematics. You also undertake laboratory-based practical work.
  • In the second year and final years, you study modules that build upon the material learnt in the first year. As your knowledge grows, you discover which areas particularly interest you, so that in your final year you can specialise in preparation for your final-year design or development-based engineering project.
