About Bioengineering at University of Sheffield

Be inspired to help shape the future of healthcare technology on this flexible and well-established course which has been running over a decade.

In your first year you'll get a broad-based introduction to bioengineering.

You'll learn about biology, physiology and anatomy, and begin to understand how traditional engineering principles can be applied to the human body.

At the end of year one, you'll choose between two broad themes before refining your choice even further in year two to study one of these four specialisms for the rest of the course:

  • Biomedical Engineering - How engineering principles can provide innovative solutions to safeguard and enhance human health.
  • Medical Devices and Systems - The development of novel medical devices and the improvement of clinical engineering systems.
  • Biomaterials Science and Tissue Engineering - The application of materials engineering and cell biology principles to achieve improved repair of injured and damaged body tissues and organs.
  • Biomanufacturing - The application of chemical engineering and cell biology principles to improve the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and other biologically active substances.

Project work, sometimes in groups, could see you tackling industrial problems and developing your management skills. In the third year you'll work on a group project, and in the final year you'll complete a major piece of individual research related to your chosen specialism.

All our students take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses you'll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It's designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

The MEng satisfies all the academic requirements needed for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
