Apply professional engineering knowledge to understand, modify and control biological systems on this 4-year BEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering degree, including a sandwich placement year in industry.
You’ll study disciplines such as:
rehabilitation engineering – prosthetic / orthotic devices
biomaterials and implant design
tissue engineering and wound repair for artificial organs
genomic coding and genetic engineering
medical technology – design and manufacturing
All teaching is informed by the latest research, and is delivered by experienced medical engineers and clinical scientists. You’ll also gain professional insight from leading industry partners, and hands-on practical experience in our state-of-the-art engineering laboratories.
A placement year in industry enables you to build contacts whilst developing your skills and professional confidence.
Depending on your level of progress, transfer to our integrated Master's degree is possible at the end of either your first or second year. The MEng programme comprises an extra fourth academic year of more in-depth study, and can be taken with or without a placement year in industry.
These courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and can lead to Chartered Engineer (CEng) accreditation. This course is recognised by ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education).
Health authorities in the UK are among the largest employers in Europe and are supported by a large and diverse industrial sector supplying diagnostic and monitoring equipment, orthopaedic devices and artificial organs. The mix of professional engineering and health related skills acquired will enable you to pursue a wide choice of careers in this dynamic and growing sector.
90% of our 2017 graduates in Medical Engineering found employment or went on to further study within six months of graduating.
1st year- Design, Build and Test, Mathematical Methods and Applications, Electronics and Mechanics, Engineering Materials, Thermofluids 1, Computer Aided Engineering.
2nd year- Further Engineering Mathematics and Statistics, Clinical Movement Analysis, Electronics for Bio-Sensing, Healthcare Technology Project, Functional Anatomy and Human Physiological Measurement, Cell and Tissue Biology.
3rd year- Individual Research Project, Biomaterials with Implant Design and Technology, Rehabilitation and Prosthetics, Medical Ethics and Quality Management, Project Management and Six Sigma.
This Biomedical Engineering programme offers you the opportunity to take up a placement year working in industry in your third year.
The placement year is an excellent way to develop your professional experience, build industry contacts, and gain insight into the day-to-day work of a professional biomedical engineer. In the sandwich year you will only pay £1,824.
During the second year we’ll offer you all the support you need to find a placement that is aligned to your career aspirations and personal interests. These include sessions on CVs, interviews etc. from the Careers service at the University and presentations by both employers and previous year's students on their placements. Once on placement you’ll have support and guidance from a placements tutor, who will monitor your progress.
After completing your placement you’ll return to complete the final year of the programme, and apply all you’ve learnt to your final project. Many students continue their relationship with their placement employers, working for them part-time or returning to work in graduate positions after finishing their studies.

A successor to the Bradford Mechanics Institute, Bradford Technical College, and the Bradford Institute of Technology, the University of Bradford became the UK’s fortieth University in 1966 and has continued to grow ever since.
Student population is now almost 10,000, bringing students from 150 nations together in one place of learning excellence.
After Bradford Institute of Technology was granted a Royal Charter and the University of Bradford was established, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson was installed as the first Chancellor. Today, that role belongs to Kate Swann, a respected leader in the UK business world.
The University's Business School is one of the oldest in the UK, continues to be a world leader in business and management education, research and knowledge transfer. It is one of only a small number of business schools across the world with the coveted triple-crown of Accreditations.
In 2018 It became the first British University of Sanctuary. This builds on our history and culture of welcome and inclusion, which was established through the creation of the first British University Peace Studies department in 1973.
