We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Study in bioengineering employs fundamental methods primarily developed by natural scientists, physical scientists and engineers in order to advance understanding in biology, physiology and medicine.
The major research activities of the Department are concerned with the functioning of body systems, devising means of examining them, and providing support during therapy or surgery, as well as other technical applications.
Detailed analysis of these systems is a key factor in understanding and treating the most disabling medical conditions in a large and increasing proportion of the world’s population, such as atherosclerosis, thrombosis, osteoarthritis, bronchitis, arthritis, cancer, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease, and strokes.
Imperial leads the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge in the discipline. In the REF 2014, 95 per cent of the Department’s returned research was judged either ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
Our staff come from diverse academic disciplines including all main branches of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences and medicine. The rich collaborative environment ensures our research benefits from both engineering rigour and clinical relevance.
