The BEng (Hons) degree in Biomedical Engineering covers a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry and draws on City's long-standing expertise in technology and healthcare.
Who is it for?
One of the top ranked courses of its kind in the country, this course is aimed at students interested in a range of career opportunities in the biomedical engineering sector. Becoming a biomedical engineer promises an exciting career, bridging the advances in biomedical sciences with professional skills in delivering engineering projects within a rapidly growing field.
City's Biomedical Engineering course applies the principles of science, engineering and medicine directly to the complex medical technologies used in the prognosis, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the sick and injured. Biomedical engineers also require managerial and communication skills and an awareness of the economic, environmental and social implications of their activity. Our Biomedical Engineering programme is designed to provide excellent training in all these areas.
The current accreditation of the programme by IET, InstMC and IPEM has expired at the end of the academic year 2014/15 and a full renewal accreditation visit is taking place in November 2015.
You will have the opportunity to complete a placement after your second year
The Biomedical group works closely with teams from prominent clinical institutions including: St Bartholomew's Hospital, The Royal London Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Chartered status may be reached by taking a BEng (Hons) degree followed by a Masters degree (or Engineering doctorate) accredited by the appropriate engineering institution.
