Be inspired to help shape the future of healthcare technology on this flexible course. In your first year you'll get a broad-based introduction to bioengineering. You'll learn about biology, physiology and anatomy, and begin to understand how traditional engineering principles can be applied to the human body. We also encourage you to start thinking like a professional: in the Global Engineering Challenge, you will work alongside other students on a week-long project to solve a problem set by one of our industrial partners. At the end of year one, you'll choose between two broad themes before refining your choice even further in year two to study one of these four specialisms: -Biomedical Engineering - How engineering principles can provide innovative solutions to safeguard and enhance human health. -Medical Devices and Systems - The development of novel medical devices and the improvement of clinical engineering systems. -Biomaterials Science and Tissue Engineering - The application of materials engineering and cell biology principles to achieve improved repair of injured and damaged body tissues and organs. -Biomanufacturing - The application of chemical engineering and cell biology principles to improve the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and other biologically active substances. You'll spend a year working in an engineering, medical or healthcare company. This real-world experience gives you a competitive advantage in the jobs market once you graduate. In the fourth year, you will work on an individual project related to your specialism. Our Scientific Writing module will teach you how to communicate your work to different audiences - both technically within the academic field, and to the wider public. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). The MEng satisfies all the academic requirements needed for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
