Course summary

Learn the skills to enter this exciting industry from experienced engineers and NHS clinicians in specialised facilities. Biomedical engineering at Hull builds on the success of the University’s engineering courses. You'll be taught by experienced engineering professionals and by NHS clinicians and clinical engineers from local hospitals.

  • Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM)
  • Graduating provides a direct pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer – a benchmark in the profession
  • Engineering graduates have some of the best employment prospects and highest starting salaries of any degree discipline
Through a combination of virtual learning systems and traditional teaching, you'll develop the techniques to solve complex problems. You'll also learn practical dissection skills in the lab to gain a complete understanding of human anatomy and the medical engineering issues which may arise for surgeons. Extend your studies with an industrial placement and an integrated masters year. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
