University of Kent has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This cross-disciplinary course is designed for students with a strong interest in engineering and bio-medicine. Drawing from our established expertise in developing medical-electronic systems and from the research synergies with the School of Biosciences, the course will form engineers with a solid knowledge in biology and medical science. Nowadays business and research environments, such as Biotechnology, increasingly require engineers who can design complete solutions involving complex integrated systems. Our course goes beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and will educate engineers that can develop systems used in medical practice and research in biology. Students will undertake laboratory practicals in both electronics and biology. Throughout the programme, the students will carry out projects where they will build bioscience related electronic devices under the supervision of academics from engineering and biosciences.
