In joining our Medical Engineering programmes you will place yourself in the front line of delivering society’s future healthcare needs and aspirations – an exciting and challenging prospect!
You will study through our internationally renowned Centre for Biomedical Engineering, a key teaching and research area. As one of the longest-established medical engineering activities in the UK, you will benefit from nearly 50 years’ experience of teaching and research. Our cutting-edge expertise will ensure that you gain the latest techniques and knowledge.
Our medical engineering activities feature analysis of human movement; electrical stimulation for limb movement following spinal cord injury, stroke or cerebral palsy; osseointegrated implants for above-knee amputees; design of artificial (prosthetic) limbs; sensory feedback; and dielectrophoresis in disease detection. Our activities also benefit from strong collaborative links with both the UK health services and the national and international medical engineering industry.
Our degrees provide you with a firm foundation in medical engineering through accredited programmes that can lead to Chartered Engineer status. Close interaction with practising clinical and healthcare engineering professionals provides you with expert guidance as you progress through your degree.
Your lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions will be supplemented by visits to clinical and industrial centres, particularly in your final year. These degrees share a common first year with our Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering programmes. This ensures that you can communicate with engineers of different specialisations and allows you to confirm or change your degree choice.
Programme includes a professional training year.
The University of Surrey has consistently been at or very close to the top of the league table for graduate employment. This is due to the professional focus of our degrees, with accreditation by professional institutions, and the quality of our industrial placements.
Most graduates from these programmes proceed directly to employment in the medical engineering profession. Medical engineers can work in a number of areas, for example, as clinical scientists in the NHS, in rehabilitation or as designers of medical equipment, or even in the areas of sports science or biomechanics. A significant number of our students go on to further their studies with postgraduate qualifications in medical engineering and related disciplines.
