About

Why study BEng Biomedical Engineering at Middlesex University?

This Biomedical Engineering BEng course is an degree is exciting multi-disciplinary study in engineering covering anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, implants and prosthetics, medical instrumentation and rehabilitation. It has been designed to meet the current needs of healthcare providers by training biomedical engineers who can design and improve both existing and emergent systems, devices and treatments.

Building upon previous experiences in applied mathematics and physics or other applied sciences, this degree will develop a wide range of engineering knowledge and skills to contribute to improving quality of or saving lives in the healthcare industry or healthcare delivery. You will be armed with the skills, knowledge and experience to innovate the future of healthcare by entering a career in the expanding field of biomedical engineering or by progressing to postgraduate study in a related field.

You will have access to fully equipped state-of-the-art laboratories for medical device design and human performance measurement and will benefit from the facilities in our human-computer interaction research department where we are making developments in vital areas of healthcare, such as the rehabilitation of stroke victims and amputees.

Course highlights

  • The teaching team is made up from professional engineers and fully qualified healthcare practitioners drawn from a range of departments within the Faculty
  • Teaching is influenced by and incorporates front-line research in medical engineering, rehabilitation engineering and related topics
  • You can choose to complete an optional placement between Year 2 and 3 with NHS or industrial partners, where you will gain vital professional experience and also receive a Diploma of Industrial Studies
  • Designed to meet the standards set by the collaboration between UK Quality Assurance Agency and the Engineering Council
  • If you apply for our four year MEng Biomedical Engineering course, you can gain a masters qualification by completing the fourth year of the degree. You can also receive student loan funding to cover your postgraduate course fees.
  • As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

Careers

A degree in biomedical engineering is a stepping-stone to an increasing number of global career opportunities. The larger equipment developers (Phillips, Siemens, Draeger) focus their activities in mainland Europe, though opportunities for careers in sales and technical support exist in the UK. The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) has a large membership of small and medium sized companies that take graduates for design and development work.

You will possess knowledge and skills useful in a range of career opportunities but you could also choose to undertake further training to provide support roles in the NHS or private health sector.
