Biomaterials Engineering

Biomaterials Engineering is an exciting new course delivered within the family of Materials courses here at Loughborough. It builds on our strengths in Materials and Bio-related disciplines across campus and offers students with a leaning towards bioscience and biotechnology a route into the important and growing area of materials that are bio-compatible and/or bio-derived and those that are designed for use in the biomedical sector. Particular application areas are in the health, sport and lifestyle sectors, in regenerative medicine, and in the context of a world-wide ageing population, biomaterials and medical device technology are developing fields that are set to continue to grow for many years. By its nature this course is very interdisciplinary and also benefits from the expertise of our School of Sports, Exercise and Health Sciences and Chemical Engineering department (Regenerative Medicine). The course is a comprehensive programme of modules that deliver both the theory and the essential industrial relevance employers seek from graduates. The course content encompasses all aspects of materials and biomaterials; their selection, manufacture, testing, assembly and environmental impact both during production and at the end of life.
