Course summary

This exciting programme provides a grounding in the practical application of engineering principles and design concepts to healthcare technologies. It draws on the research strengths of UCL and its excellent links to local hospitals, and prepares graduates to work in a wide range of technology areas from imaging and diagnosis to monitoring and treatment.

Your learning

As well as attending lectures, you will also undertake tutorials and practical work, including projects. Projects are conducted in active, well-equipped research groups, often involving collaborations with local hospitals. Many biomedical engineering lectures and projects are taken by a mix of biomedical engineering, medical physics and medical students, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the work.

Assessment

Modules are normally assessed by a combination of coursework and end-of-year examination

Careers

Engineers tend to be logical, numerate problem solvers who are good at working in interdisciplinary teams. There is a demand for people who have developed such skills in a wide range of careers within academia, hospitals or industry.

Engineers specialised in medicine work alongside clinicians, therapists and researchers to develop systems, equipment and devices in order to diagnose and treat illnesses. Biomedical engineers are responsible for such life-saving and life-enhancing tehnologies as prosthetics, dentures, artificial hearts, dialysis machines, robotic and laser eye surgery, pacemakers, and wearable technology.
