Biomedical engineering is a very diverse field which is also developing rapidly. To help you to become a bioengineer of the future, we work closely with industry to ensure you are as well-prepared as possible for a career in this exciting and rewarding industry.
Our Biomedical Engineering courses are highly practical and use real examples and projects from industry and medicine. On this course you'll look at current health issues and develop materials, processes and devices that help prevent or treat disease or rehabilitate patients.
Areas of bioengineering covered on this course are biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, medical imaging,rehabilitation, and cellular, tissue, and genetic engineering.
In the School of Science and Technology we pride ourselves on our hands-on approach to teaching and giving you real-world experience. With our brand-new engineering courses we are taking these experiences to the next level with a revolutionary approach to teaching engineering.
We are partnering with industry every step of the way to ensure that you become the very best engineer of the future by working with all types and sizes of engineering organisations. In our innovative approach, you'll spend a large proportion of your time each year applying theory to live, industry-led projects. You'll also have the opportunity to apply for a year-long work placement to boost your industry knowledge even further.
With the focus firmly on problem-solving and live project work, we aim to give you three to four years of industry experience before you graduate. Who wouldn't want that on their CV?

As is normal practice for new engineering courses, the University will seek accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for our programmes when they have students in the final year (2019/20). This accreditation will ensure the content of our courses matches the IET benchmark awarded to high-quality programmes that provide ideal preparation for aspiring professional engineers. The accreditation, if granted, will be backdated to include the first intake years.
