Biomaterials Science and Engineering BEng (Hons)
This course combines study of materials engineering with human anatomy, physiology and cell biology. You'll learn about the healthcare applications of materials.

Our biomaterials modules are developed to meet the needs of industry. Topics include: understanding living systems; the structure and function of tissue; cell and molecular biology; physiology; bioimaging; and materials for biological applications.

Modules look at repairing the body from disease and injury using medical devices, compatible materials and tissue biology approaches. You'll learn how to choose the best material for uses within the body, in the context of applications in both research and industry.

In the first year, you'll take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you'll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It's designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
