The ever-expanding field of biomedical engineering combines scientific and engineering principles to create and improve medical technology. As a Biomedical Engineering with Foundation undergraduate, you’ll have the opportunity to join the next generation of engineers and contribute to the advancement of this important industry. If you’re skilled in science and want to make a difference in the healthcare industry, our Biomedical Engineering with Foundation degree course could give you the opportunity to fulfil your goals and reach your full potential. Incorporating elements of engineering, health, biology and sport, biomedical engineering is concerned with the design, development and technical support of medical equipment used by the healthcare industry. The foundation year is the first year of this degree, offering an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, biology and mathematics. It’s designed to prepare you for degree level study. This course aims to provide you with a good grounding in biomedical engineering principles and related subjects like biomechanics, application of engineering materials and product design. Run in collaboration with the University’s specialists in human movement science, the course also presents opportunities to learn more about how biomedical engineering supports rehabilitation for a diverse population, from general public patients, to professional athletes. We offer access to the latest technology, high-specification laboratory equipment and the chance to work with internationally recognised research teams. You’ll also benefit from varied teaching and interactive learning opportunities designed to help you develop and apply problem solving, modelling and analytical skills, based on theory and practice.
