Biomedical engineering is an emerging field in the UK that involves applying physical, chemical, mathematical, computer science and engineering principles to the analysis of biological, medical, behavioural and health-related problems. Biomedical engineers develop innovative devices and procedures to help prevent, diagnose and treat diseases. It relies on an in-depth understanding of science and engineering fundamentals, combined with a broad knowledge of physiological and anatomical systems.
You will acquire analytical tools and a broad physical knowledge of modern engineering and science. This Biomedical Engineering programme at the University of Bristol is combined with a fundamental understanding of anatomical and physiological systems, and familiarity with recent technological breakthroughs.
Employment opportunities in the sector are excellent and varied. Biomedical engineers can be employed by companies working in the design, development and manufacture of medical devices; within the NHS (for example, in hospitals to collaborate with clinicians in offering non-clinical services); in research institutes or academia; in governmental regulatory agencies; or as technical consultants within marketing departments.
