As a biomedical engineer, you will combine the study of engineering and biology to bring solutions to the medical and health care industries. The use of technology is increasingly growing in all areas of our lives. Applying engineering solutions to biomedical problems is contributing to improving our health provision and saving lives. Biomedical engineers design and deliver engineering solutions to biomedical problems and contribute to improving our health and saving lives. Biomedical engineers are responsible for developing robots used in surgery, advanced prosthetics, machines for treating patients such as kidney dialysis, diagnostic equipment such as hospital NMR machines and artificial organs to name a few. Our foundation year option enables you to join the Biomedical Engineering course even if you don’t have the formal qualifications or experience to meet the entry requirements. It equips you with the knowledge to move into formal degree study, setting you up for future success. The course is designed based on CDIO (Conceive Design Implement Operate) methodology where students will interact with industry from first year through industry-oriented real time projects. We offer a truly immersive and inclusive learning opportunity where the applied elements of the course are delivered in professional standard environments. This course enables you to develop your science and maths knowledge to pursue your biomedical engineering degree and provides professional biomedical engineering practice, and the opportunity to build professional networks with industry. You will be taught by an inspiring and diverse community of teachers interested in inclusiveness and social mobility. In this course, you will use the pioneering CDIO (Create, Design, Implement and Operate) approach developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). CDIO gives you a rich hands-on experience that you can use to design and develop technology to provide biomedical engineering solutions. You could find solutions to urgent issues in health, patient treatment or development of products required by medical teams and much more. At CCCU, most of the CDIO projects are outsourced by Industry across Kent and you will design and develop one/two CDIO projects in each semester along with technical sessions. This helps you to create the bridge between industry and academia from the beginning of your course. Each engineering programme learning outcomes are based on Engineering Council AHEP 4.0 standards. Location This course is run at our Canterbury Campus in Kent. Canterbury is just 50 miles south-east of London and less than an hour by high-speed train from St Pancras. Located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site the campus offers state-of-the-art buildings, right in the centre of a vibrant and world-famous cathedral city. You’ll benefit from a campus with excellent learning and teaching resources, music venues, a superb sports centre, a well-stocked bookshop and plenty of coffee bars and places to eat. A short walk away is Augustine House our award-winning library and home to a vast range of learning resources and student support teams.
