Rapid prototype technology, like 3D printers, has enabled biomedical engineers to make a valuable contribution to designing and developing engineering solutions for healthcare organisations, professionals and patients.
The BEng with foundation year provides creative and talented students, career changers, or those with experience and passion for the subject, with a direct route to an engineering degree. You’ll develop the theory and practical science knowledge needed to study at BEng level where you’ll combine biological knowledge with engineering principles to solve medical problems. On this innovative course, you’ll use the pioneering CDIO approach (see p xx) to design and develop biomedical engineering solutions for the healthcare sector and test products to evaluate their application to new settings.
You will explore areas including: \ natural and synthetic materials \ biomechanics \ medical biology \ chemistry and rapid prototype manufacture.
YOUR CAREER This course equips you to be a practising professional graduate biomedical engineer. Biomedical engineering is a key area for growth in south-east England which presents exciting opportunities for graduates. You’ll be able to apply and develop technology to provide biomedical engineering solutions for the healthcare industry. DID YOU KNOW? The average salary of a Biomedical Engineer is £26,268 a year (Payscale).
