Biomedical engineering is a scientific discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through multidisciplinary research that integrates the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Over the last few years there has been a major paradigm shift in both Europe and the United States, away from traditional schemes of health care towards health care systems which are much more dependent on technology. This is true in terms of diagnosis, treatment and health care system integration.

The skills and training you gain on this course will allow you to apply engineering principles and materials technology to healthcare, to understand the design and manufacture of medical equipment, and to consider ethical principles that underpin medical engineering, regulatory issues and governance.
