MEng Biomedical Engineering
City, University of London
On the Biomedical Engineering course, students will cover a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry. Subjects covered include measurement, data analysis, mechatronics, biosignal and image processing, medical physics, biomedical instrumentation and biomedical optics.
The MEng (Hons) course covers further modules on biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical sensors, bioinformatics and telemedicine.
In Part 4 MEng students will be involved in design project, which is a key part of the integrated Master's degree action as a transition from formal education to professional life. Project work embraces not only the technical aspects of design using advanced engineering tools but develops professional skills such as management, team building and business. The focus of all the projects is the delivery of a substantial machine or device in an international context, incorporating the latest thinking in technology as supported by our engineering research activities. Motivation levels in such projects are extremely high and the experience offers graduates opportunities to excel in job interviews with project achievements as exemplars of what they have delivered.
The School has its own dedicated placements team that provides on-hand placement and internship support and guidance for students throughout their studies.
Our team of placement specialists, the Professional Liaison Unit, has extensive experience in helping students to secure professional experience across a range of industries. The team also has longstanding relationships with an impressive and diverse range of companies spanning both large and small organisations
You can undertake a summer internship at the end of each academic year or opt to spend a year on an industry placement at the end of your third year - if you are on the MEng (Hons) route. Placements are paid, and are a fantastic way to gain professional experience in a relevant field as part of your degree. Undertaking a placement year could also count towards the experience requirement for a professional engineering qualification.
In recent years Biomedical Engineering students have been able to obtain placements at leading companies within their chosen field such as Urban Science, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Department for Work and Pensions, UCAS and Genetic Microdevices.
Placements are highly encouraged at City; students that complete a placement year benefit from gaining professional experience working on real-life projects and are also more likely to; achieve higher grades, secure a graduate-level job and earn a higher salary.
