Bioengineering BEng (Hons)
Be inspired to help shape the future of healthcare technology on this flexible course. In your first year you'll get a broad-based introduction to bioengineering. You'll learn about biology, physiology and anatomy, and begin to understand how traditional engineering principles can be applied to the human body. At the end of year one, you'll select one of these four streams to specialise in for the rest of the course:

* Biomedical Engineering
How engineering principles can provide innovative solutions to safeguard and enhance human health.

* Medical Devices and Systems
The development of novel medical devices and the improvement of clinical engineering systems.

* Biomaterials Science and Tissue Engineering
The application of materials engineering and cell biology principles to achieve improved repair of injured and damaged body tissues and organs.

* Biomanufacturing
The application of chemical engineering and cell biology principles to improve the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and other biologically active substances.

In the third year you'll complete an individual project on a topic related to your chosen specialism.

All our students 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.
