Biomedical Engineering is a fast emerging sector in the UK, as well as in the international market. This biomedical engineering degree applies principles of engineering, biology and medicine to meet the challenging demands of the health care sector, and plays a significant role in improving patient and professional quality.

Our biomedical engineering course enables you to progress straight on to a Masters degree, giving you the knowledge and employability skills that will allow you to become an aspiring entrepreneur or a dynamic engineer within medical devices companies / the NHS, or to undertake the essential research learning experience and emerge as a budding scientist.

Biomedical Engineering is a unique course that pulls in a range of different subjects, from mechanical to electrical and electronic engineering. If you have prior knowledge of mathematics, physics, biology and/or the mechanical, electrical or electronic side of engineering, this course is an ideal opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge in biomedical engineering.

You could look at the mechanical applications of designing an artificial hip or knee, or devise new medical technology for physicians and medical professionals to be used in the prognosis, diagnosis and treatment of service users.

Along with these technical skills, as an engineer you’ll need a diverse range of transferrable skills, including effective communication, leadership, critically assessing gaps in target healthcare markets, and providing SMART solutions to bridge those gaps. This course provides excellent training in all these areas.

You’ll be taught by a range of experts from different faculties, and will be able to undertake valuable work placements.

Career opportunities

The course provides ample opportunities to enter the rapidly expanding manufacturing or healthcare sectors, and work alongside medical professionals and scientists to design artificial limbs or develop novel sensors or devices which cater to diverse needs.

The degree provides strong transferrable skills, and if you don’t wish to pursue a career in the healthcare sector, you can pursue careers in other engineering disciplines, such as law (knowledge transfer and patenting), medicine or market research.

In some international countries, biomedical engineering graduates have become entrepreneurs, setting up small-scale, yet successful, consultancy businesses.
