Biomedical Engineering allows a choice of study patterns with the option to include a year of practical professional training and/or to proceed straight through to MEng level.
A foundation year for those without science qualifications is available.
This course combines professional engineering knowledge and expertise with an appreciation of the functioning of the human body.
It covers everything from the development of new equipment for medical diagnosis and treatment to the implanting of biomaterials or artificial organs in the human body, and more recently cell/tissue engineering for replacing diseased body parts such as bone, cartilage and skin, as well as offering expertise in infection control and clinical signals.
It uses engineering principles to understand, modify and control biological systems, and requires a working knowledge of physiology, anatomy and biological science.
These courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and can lead to Chartered Engineer (CEng) accreditation. This course is recognised by ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education).
