About this program

Biomedical Engineering with a Year in Industry

Biomedical engineers use their technological knowledge and understanding to help people live longer, healthier, happier lives. You learn a broad range of engineering skills, develop your ability to collaborate and solve problems, and work on projects in medicine and biology with life-changing potential.

You study many subjects, including engineering mathematics, mechanics, nanotechnology, biomaterials, electronic engineering, physiology, programming and design. You develop a deep understanding of fundamental engineering principles and an extensive knowledge of how the human body works.

As you move through the course you progress to more advanced engineering studies that apply the quantitative aspects of engineering analysis and design to a broad range of biomedical problems. 

You also have access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities. These are designed to support practical activities across the subjects covered by this field. This creates an interdisciplinary community that you are very much part of.
