Course summary

The integrated BEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering degree is designed to offer students the most direct route to achieving CEng professional registration. Becoming a biomedical engineer promises an exciting career, bridging the advances in biomedical sciences with professional skills in delivering engineering projects within a rapidly growing field.Biomedical Engineering applies the principles of science, engineering and medicine directly to the complex medical technologies used in the prognosis, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the sick and injured. Biomedical engineers also require managerial and communication skills and an awareness of the economic, environmental and social implications of their activity. Our courses are designed to provide excellent training in all these areas.You can undertake a summer internship at the end of each academic year or opt to spend a year on an industry placement at the end of your third year. Our team of placement specialists, the Professional Liaison Unit, has extensive experience in helping students to secure professional experience across a range of industries. Placements are paid, and are a fantastic way to gain professional experience in a relevant field as part of your degree. Undertaking a placement year could also count towards the experience requirement for a professional engineering qualification. In recent years Biomedical Engineering students have been able to obtain placements at leading companies within their chosen field such as Urban Science, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Department for Work and Pensions, UCAS and Genetic Microdevices.The biomedical engineering field is wide and graduates can find employment in areas such as the NHS (both in engineering and related disciplines such as medical physics, cardiology or medical imaging), the medical technology industry, the pharmaceutical industry, academic or private biomedical research, the Department of Health and other healthcare organisations. Recent graduates have joined employers such as Philips Healthcare, Covidien, Siemens, Genetic Microdevices, AstraZeneca, Intertek and major hospitals in the NHS and overseas.
