Our degree in Biomedicine with Electronic Engineering aims to develop bioscientists who have a strong understanding of the human body and the treatment of illness but also of how technologies function. Students will benefit from Surrey’s new £12.5million Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory that houses shared learning areas for engineering, biosciences and computer science students.

The field of mHealth (the integration of mobile communication technology into healthcare) is significantly transforming the way disease is diagnosed, monitored and treated and our graduates will be well placed to make a positive impact in this field. With the 5G Innovation Centre and new Engineering for Health Centre, the University of Surrey will be at the forefront of this new technology.

The degree is part of Surrey’s pioneering Innovation for Health programme, designed to bring together computer, data and health scientists to meet the challenges of an ageing population and changing patterns of disease, developing technologies that will facilitate improvements in healthcare.

Career opportunities

In addition to the more traditional careers in academic research, as well as work within the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, which many of our Biosciences students follow, specific career opportunities were identified when the programme was designed, including:

- The NHS Scientist Training Programme
- The health and telemedicine industries (for example Telefonica)
- Academic research (especially for those who wish to develop the bioscience and engineering systems and applications of the future)
