This Biomedical Engineering BSc course offered at the University of Southampton is ideal if you're an engineering, mathematics or physical science graduate who wants to specialise in Biomedical Engineering or support your continued professional development.
Biomedical engineers work in the fields of engineering, biology and medicine to solve medical and healthcare challenges facing society. This work helps to create medical procedures, imaging systems, and devices for observing and controlling body functions.
A range of optional modules are available, from materials engineering to biological-inspired robotics. We also offer 5 pathways for those who wish to specialise:
- diagnostic systems
You'll study with teams of physicians, scientists, engineers, business people and other professionals. In this environment you’ll learn to monitor, restore and enhance normal body function, abilities and outcomes. You’ll also develop and evaluate products such as artificial organs, prostheses and instruments.
Throughout your studies you’ll improve your understanding of the ethical, safety and societal implications of developing medical technologies.
This course draws on expertise from leading departments within the University of Southampton, brought together through the:
- Institute for Life Sciences
- Engineering and the Environment
- Health Sciences
- Natural and Environmental Sciences
- Electronics and Computer Science
This master's programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement for Further Learning, for Chartered Engineer registration. Candidates must hold a BEng/BSc undergraduate first degree that is accredited for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
Many biomedical engineers work in research, either in academia or industry, along with medical scientists, to develop and evaluate systems and products such as artificial organs, prostheses, instrumentation, and diagnostic, health management and care delivery systems.
Biomedical engineers may design devices used in various medical procedures and develop imaging systems and devices for observing and controlling body functions.
Biomedical engineers therefore make careers in academia, industry, healthcare and clinical medicine, as well as government.
