Entry Requirements 2022-23
Biomedical engineering represents a new area of medical research and product development, with biomedical engineers working to pave the way for new methods of helping to treat injuries and diseases. As medicine is a field with vast numbers of specific disciplines, there are many different sub-fields in which biomedical engineers may work.
Some work to improve and develop new machinery, such as robotic surgery equipment, while others endeavour to create better, more reliable replacement limbs (or parts which help existing limbs function better, such as joint replacements).
This course is designed to develop the knowledge and skills needed to maximise students' career prospects across the field. This includes key transferable skills in research, working to deadlines, project development, critical analysis, communication, team working, and problem-solving.
Biomedical engineers may become involved in a multitude of different roles including the design of medical devices, modelling and simulation of human physiology and anatomy, supporting hospitals in clinical and financial governance of existing medical equipment, development of artificial organs, computer-simulated or image-guided surgery, robot-assisted surgery, development of orthopaedic implants, medical imaging, assistive technologies, and mobile and e-health.
