Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary area with ever-growing job opportunities. The degree aims to create graduates that will play a vital role in the design and manufacture of electronic equipment for healthcare. The course is targeted towards the rapidly growing and changing health care industries occupied in interdisciplinary specialisation in electronics and computer engineering expertise for prominent biomedical applications.

The course provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals of biomedical electronic principles and computing, to provide solutions for issues related but not limited to the design and development of various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices and instruments in the healthcare sector.

Project-based learning forms an integral part of the course, with project modules being highly valued by employers. These projects include the design, construction and testing of an analog voice-over amplifier, a maze-solving autonomous robot as well as a full-custom design and implementation of a digital system. The projects are also designed to enhance your practical skills as well as develop your teamwork and project management skills.
The course shares a common Year 1 with the Electronic Engineering BSc Honours degree, and if you wish you can transfer courses at the end of that year.
Teaching methods include lectures and seminars, laboratory work, group and individual projects and mobile learning.

Assessments include formal exams, group work, written reports, presentations and posters

Career opportunities

At Westminster, we have always believed that your University experience should be designed to enhance your professional life. Today’s organisations need graduates with both good degrees and employability skills, and we are committed to enhancing your graduate employability by ensuring that career development skills are embedded in all courses.

Opportunities for part-time work, placements and work-related learning activities are widely available, and can provide you with extra cash and help you to demonstrate that you have the skills employers are looking for. In London there is a plentiful supply of part-time work – most students at the University of Westminster work part time (or full time during vacations) to help support their studies.

We continue to widen and strengthen our links with employers, involving them in curriculum design and encouraging their participation in other aspects of career education and guidance. Staff take into account the latest data on labour market trends and employers’ requirements to continually improve the service delivered to students.
