  • Option to take a Year in Industry (UCAS: 05C3)

Course details

In the first year, you gain a broad foundation in biomedical engineering, including digital technologies, biochemistry, electronics, molecular and cellular biology, robotics and engineering mathematics. As you move through the course you will undertake laboratory-based practical work to help you develop a deep understanding of electronics and biology.

In the second and third year, you develop your skills and gain a strong understanding of biomechanics, human physiology, bioinformatics and genomics, medical physics, programming and product development. As your knowledge grows, you will complete a design or development-based engineering project.
