About

The additional year in this four-year MEng Biomedical Engineering programme at University College London (UCL) allows you to explore a broader spectrum of biomedical engineering and medical physics topics, and to further develop your transferable skills through project work. It prepares graduates to work in a wide range of technology areas from imaging and diagnosis to monitoring and treatment.

Overview

Degree benefits

  • Academic lectures are supported by practical problem-solving tasks which develop understanding of teamwork, the design process and communication.
  • We have close links to several major teaching hospitals and our staff work side-by-side with doctors and health professionals. Their expert knowledge will directly benefit your lectures and teaching sessions.
  • Students in their final year have the opportunity to carry out an individual, innovative project within a world leading research group in the department, putting their knowledge into practice. 
  • The Biomedical Engineering programme is highly interdisciplinary, drawing not only from the highly-rated UCL Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering, but also from a range of engineering and science subjects across University College London (UCL) Engineering.

Careers

Engineers tend to be logical, numerate problem solvers who are good at working in interdisciplinary teams. There is a demand for people who have developed such skills in a wide range of careers within academia, hospitals or industry.

Engineers specialised in medicine work alongside clinicians, therapists and researchers to develop systems, equipment and devices in order to diagnose and treat illnesses. Biomedical engineers are responsible for such life-saving and life-enhancing tehnologies as prosthetics, dentures, artificial hearts, dialysis machines, robotic and laser eye surgery, pacemakers, and wearable technology.
