BEng/MEng in Biomedical Engineering

Aston University, Birmingham, UK

Program Description

The curriculum is designed to provide a sound academic and practical knowledge of engineering systems and applications in the medical field. You will develop a deep understanding of the human physiology and the biological functions of the body. Specific emphasis is put on engineering knowledge and practical skills including: mathematics, electronics, software engineering, biomechanics, biomaterials, simulation and modelling of biological systems, clinical practice and research methodologies. You will experience hands on development of real-world devices from the very first year of the course to emphasise the “learning by doing” ethos we embrace. By the final year of the BEng course, you will be able to undertake significant independent work as evidenced by a large project. This will become a key part of a portfolio of projects that you will develop across the course as a whole, which will become a showcase for potential employers of your newly acquired skills as a biomedical engineer. The BEng and MEng courses are taught together for years one to three. You can opt to take the 4 year MEng course at any point during the course (subject to satisfactory performance). The fourth year will take a form of placement, different to most other courses as typically students undertake a placement between their second and third year and then return for an additional year to finish their studies. Students take final year MEng modules via online delivered learning. This allows you to take up employment at an earlier stage (or to undertake an internship) while gaining a master’s degree in 4 years.
