Course summary

Our MEng Biomedical Engineering course will allow you to develop engineering solutions to solve healthcare problems while working alongside world experts in electronics, physiology, robotics and genetics.

Grounded in the fundamental principles of engineering and relevant aspects of biology and medicine, the MEng covers the design of devices, systems and techniques for the diagnosis, monitoring, management and treatment of diseases, lesions, disorders and infirmity. Major areas covered include biomedical instrumentation and imaging technology, rehabilitation and assistive technology, wearable devices, brain-computer interfaces, biomaterials and synthetic biology.

We are conducting world-renowned research in the fields of neural engineering, rehabilitation and medical technology. During your degree you will have the opportunity to undertake original research in the above fields, while completing your final-year project.

Placement

The School of Biological Sciences has excellent relationships with a number of organisations in the world of biomedical engineering, including GSK and Microchip Ltd. At the end of your second year as a MEng student, you can undertake a one-year placement within the industry. This offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field while building a network of colleagues who may significantly aid you in your career.

During your placement year, you will still be a student of the University of Reading and will have regular contact with an academic overseeing placements.

If you do not want to undertake a placement for one year, then you can take a 10-credit placement module and get credit towards your degree. This second year module allows you to work with our industrial partners over a shorter time period, usually over the summer.

What career can you have?

As an MEng graduate you will be well equipped to pursue either subsequent PhD studies, a career in industry, the health professions or academia. The MEng will provide you with practical, laboratory-based engineering experience in the design, construction, testing and characterisation of devices and systems for biomedical applications; and knowledge of state-of-the-art biomedical technology as applied in clinical practice. You will also develop your skills in mathematics, programming and relevant areas of science and technology. You will understand all aspects of medical ethics and health and safety issues associated with biomedical technology.

Along with the practical skills necessary for a career in the biomedical sector, you will also have the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills, including problem solving and the ability to work in an academic, industrial or research environment as an individual or as part of a team.
