About the course

Biomedical Engineering is at the forefront of medical research, applying biotechnology and engineering to solve a wide range of medical problems. The overall aim is to create new products and medicines that advance our understanding of biology and improve healthcare.

When you join this course, you will start by learning about cell and molecular biology before focusing on genomic and systems’ data, cell visualisation and protein localisation in cells and tissues.

You will also study methods to create three-dimensional cultures and tissues.


  • Study with tutors who possess wide ranging research experience in each subject area, and with specialists from external academic institutions, industry or government agencies
  • Explore those areas of biological science that offer clear commercial applications in future healthcare developments, and learn how technology and engineering can be used to treat human disease
  • Develop the ability to synthesise and use information from relevant sources, and independently and critically evaluate current research and advanced scholarship
  • Gain the practical, hands-on knowledge and expertise that will equip you with the skills necessary for employment within emerging areas of the Biotech and Pharmaceutical industries
  • Benefit from a wide choice of laboratory based research projects using state-of-the-art technologies and instruments, working under the supervision of dedicated research-active staff.

Units

  • Biomaterials And Tissue Engineering (BHS011-6) Compulsory
  • Cell And Molecular Biology (BHS001-6) Compulsory
  • Computational Biology (BHS008-6) Compulsory
  • Laboratory Based Research Project (Biomedical Engineering) (BHS021-6) Compulsory
  • Medical Imaging And Cryobiology (BHS009-6) Compulsory

Assessment is undertaken in all units of the course to check that you have met (or are working towards meeting) the threshold standards expected of all students. Each unit of study has three summative assessment points and when each is marked you will be provided with feedback that is designed to show you where you are meeting/exceeding the standards and where/how you can/should make further improvement. The final assessment in each of the taught units is a formal written examination. Elsewhere, a range of assessment methods are used. Some you may be familiar with (e.g. laboratory reports) while others may be less familiar (e.g. research proposals, poster/oral presentations) but each is designed to build upon and extend what is expected of students with a lower degree. The research project is assessed in three parts: first, the use and maintenance of a project notebook; second, production of a formal project dissertation; and finally, an oral presentation with an associated question and answering session.
