Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering

Engineering, physics, mathematics and computer science are all continuing to transform medicine, from the design of ground-breaking artificial organs to the development of stem cell research and keyhole surgery.

A relatively new engineering discipline, biomedical engineering degrees combine the study of mathematics, biology and medicine to discover the techniques in which engineering can be used to solve medical problems. If you’re interested in exploring the combination of engineering and medicine to design and create innovative healthcare equipment to change people’s lives, this course could suit you.
