Program Description:

Biomedical engineering is an emerging field in the UK that involves applying physical, chemical, mathematical, computer science and engineering principles to the analysis of biological, medical, behavioural and health-related problems. Biomedical engineers develop innovative devices and procedures to help prevent, diagnose and treat diseases. It relies on an in-depth understanding of science and engineering fundamentals, combined with a broad knowledge of physiological and anatomical systems.

This programme allows you to gain expertise in this exciting field and covers both theory and practical applications. You will acquire the analytical tools and broad physical knowledge of modern engineering and science, as well as a fundamental understanding of the anatomical and physiological systems, and familiarity with recent technological breakthroughs.
