About Biomedical Engineering with a Year in Industry at University of Kent

This cross-disciplinary programme is designed for students with a strong interest in engineering and biomedicine. Drawing from our established expertise in developing medical-electronic systems and from the research synergies with the School of Biosciences (eg systems biology), the programme produces engineers with a solid knowledge in biology and medical science.

Nowadays, business and research environments, such as biotechnology, increasingly require engineers who can design complete solutions involving complex integrated systems. Our programme goes beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and educates engineers that can develop systems used in medical practice and research in biology.

You undertake laboratory practicals in both electronics and biology. Throughout the programme, you carry out projects where you build bioscience-related electronic devices under the supervision of academics from engineering and biosciences. 

Our modules provide a solid knowledge in mathematics, electronics, programming, mechanics, physiology and biology.

You also attend seminars delivered by experts in bioengineering working in private companies, research centres or NHS institutions.

The additional aims of our Year in Industry programme are to give students an opportunity to gain experience as engineers working in a professional environment and to develop employment related skills. The Year in Industry opportunity develops students’ technical skills, employability and soft skills as well as increasing their awareness of the future context for employment.
