Course summary

Biomaterials Engineering is an exciting course delivered within the Department of Materials at Loughborough, and builds on our strengths in materials and bio-related disciplines across the university.The course will teach you the fundamentals of materials, their properties and engineering methods, and how to apply these to the biomedical field, particularly within the human body. Application areas are in the health, sport, and lifestyle sectors, as well as in regenerative medicine. In the context of a world-wide ageing population, biomaterials and medical device technology are developing fields that are set to grow for many years.By its nature, this course is interdisciplinary, and benefits from the expertise of our School of Sports, Exercise and Health Sciences and Chemical Engineering department (Regenerative Medicine).Our Biomaterials Engineering degree is a comprehensive programme of modules that deliver both the theory and the essential industrial relevance employers seek from graduates. The course content encompasses all aspects of materials and biomaterials; their selection, manufacture, testing, assembly and environmental impact both during production and at the end of life.**What's the difference between MEng and BEng?**The first two years of a BEng and MEng share the same content, format and structure, with a good mix of theory, application and practical content from day one. The MEng differs from the BEng course in the third and fourth years by offering the opportunity to study technical and management topics at a more advanced level. It is possible to transfer from a BEng to an MEng from the start of the course up to the end of the second year, providing that the transfer progression criteria are met.
