Program description

Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering

Join the next generation of digital health technology engineers and design the health and wellbeing devices of the future on this biomedical electronic engineering degree. You’ll study key aspects of electronic engineering such as digital systems, solid state devices and computer engineering, and combine this with life sciences.

Life sciences modules introduce you to cell biology, the body’s essential systems, and neuroscience. The 2 disciplines come together in specialist biomedical electronic engineering modules.

On this course you’ll learn to design, build and test new health and wellbeing devices and systems. This includes wearable monitors to intelligent medical diagnostic tools.

Our biomedical electronics engineering programme will equip you for a career in a thriving sector, where your innovations could, one day, change the world.

As part of your degree course you can:

  • combine electronic engineering training biomedicine studies, giving you the skills to create sensors, apps and digital systems
  • use our outstanding research facilities including a modern electronics lab, a specialist biodevice lab and clean room
  • develop your enterprise skills with support from our on-campus startup platform
  • benefit from our strong relationships with ground-breaking organisations in this emerging industry
