Biomedical & Robotic Engineering
Biomedical engineers develop innovative technologies for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of illness. This degree equips you with a diverse portfolio of engineering, scientific and medical skills needed for a career in this sector. The course lays a good foundation for the core concepts and principles of robotics in biomedical and healthcare engineering with modules including mechatronics, biomedical instrumentation and programming; medical physics and imaging, and biomedical optics. Information is delivered in lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory classes. Learning involves a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational study. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. Group learning and communication skills are emphasised through design studies and student presentations. This is a growing field at the forefront of innovation, making career prospects particularly strong. Graduates work in a range of industries, from hospitals and healthcare, to pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of medical devices.
