About this course

Combine your engineering skills with biology and medicine. Learn to design, develop and test medical devices and specialise in areas that interest you, like implants, biomaterials and orthopaedics. Biomedical engineering is a growing field, so this course will help you find a rewarding career as a chartered engineer.

This course follows similar content to our degree in mechanical engineering. You'll focus on the mechanics of the human body, and the human factors in engineering.

You'll use our design workshops and studios and gain practical experience on a variety of projects. You'll test your bioengineering skills with a project about stabilising bone fractures.

As part of this course you can:

  • use our range of engineering facilities

  • take an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • learn about the computational tools that help doctors analyse large amounts of patient data

You'll put your skills into practice with an individual project and final year group design project, where you can work with students from other engineering specialisms.

We're a designated university for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS).

This course is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and offers a route to chartered status.
