What will you study on the BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering?
This course will cover the engineering design principles and engineering fundamentals such as mechanics and electronics and the mathematics that support them. You will learn about anatomy and physiology, and learn to interpret, analyse and critically evaluate experimental results to improve technology , as well as the instrumentation to diagnose and treat disease and disability.
By choosing this degree, you have the potential to make life-changing advancements in the field, working on a diverse range of projects such as artificial organs, automated patient monitoring, blood chemistry sensors, advanced therapeutic and surgical devices. You will also cover the application of expert systems and artificial intelligence, clinical decision making, design of optimal clinical laboratories, medical imaging systems, computer modelling of physiological systems, biomaterials design, and biomechanics for injury and wound healing, among many others.
What will you gain?
Throughout your studies you will gain the advanced analytical, technical and professional skills required to begin a career in biomedical engineering. You will gain skills in creative problem solving through design, as well as the ability to effectively conduct research and communicate your work. Your practical workshop, modelling and prototyping skills will also have developed.
After working for a substantial length of time, at an appropriate level of professional practice, you will be able to attain the professional status of Chartered Engineer.
