Biomedical engineering is a field that combines medicine and biology with engineering for healthcare purposes. As a biomedical engineer, you will use your technological skills to help improve people’s lives. This could mean developing groundbreaking medical devices, health diagnostic systems, or working with prosthetics. In a world with an ageing and growing population, the knowledge and skills of a biomedical engineer are becoming increasingly desirable, in a fight against diseases and incidents that shorten or decrease the quality of lives.
A postgraduate degree in biomedical engineering will allow you to expand on the skills and knowledge gained at undergraduate level. Modules you study might include medical imaging, synthetic biology, performance engineering, rehabilitation robotics, and tissue engineering.
