We bring together engineering, medicine and the life and physical sciences to enable the development of relevant clinical and industrial research.
The Biomedical Engineering course at The University of Strathclyde explores advances in technology and engineering to generate applications and solutions to clinically relevant problems.
As part of the course you’ll go on visits to local clinical centres and attend lectures from industrialists and visiting experts from the UK and overseas. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our many industrial and clinical partners to help advise and further your career.
How much will I earn?
