Course summary

Biomedical engineering is an exciting, cutting-edge and fast-emerging sector in the United Kingdom and overseas. It applies engineering solutions to meet the challenging demands of the healthcare sector, and plays a significant role in improving the quality of patient care. Our Biomedical Engineering course pulls in many different subjects, from mechanical to electrical and electronic engineering, while embedding the principles of human anatomy and physiology. This course offers you an enriched learning experience via its practice-led, knowledge-applied course. You will be supported in undertaking appropriate elective placement opportunities and work independently or in teams to solve biomedical engineering problems. You will interact very closely with a range of professionals, varying from medical engineers to medical practitioners working in private medical device industries and local healthcare trusts. The knowledge and employability skills you gain will assist you to become an entrepreneur or engineer in the healthcare technology sector or use the research skills you have gained to emerge as a budding scientist.
