What Does a Biomedical Engineering Degree Involve?

There has never been a better time to study a Biomedical Engineering degree than now. With every advance in science, aerospace technology, and electronics, there are also ground-breaking discoveries and innovative new solutions being introduced to the healthcare and medical industry.

Electronics are constantly evolving, becoming smaller and more powerful, while researchers continue to create intriguing new ways of studying the human body. All of this leads to a more complete understanding, a greater chance of rehabilitation and recovery.

And if 2020 has shown us anything, it’s that we, as a society, depend on the people that devote their lives to the healthcare industry.

When you study a Biomedical Engineering degree at the University of Bolton in Greater Manchester, you can become one of the experts working to improve the lives of everyone. You’ll use engineering principles to improve medical equipment and study analytical models in our specialist facilities.

We're proud to be one of the UK’s Top 5 Universities for Teaching Quality*, and our career-focused course has been carefully designed to equip you with all the skills and experience you need to thrive in industry.

What Is Biomedical Engineering? 

Before we go any further, a quick checkpoint. Do we all know what Biomedical Engineering actually is?

You’ve probably already figured out that a Biomedical Engineering degree explores the ways that biology meets engineering. To elaborate on that point, it’s where engineering principles and materials can be used to improve healthcare and medical solutions.

That means it’s a broad field. Biomedical Engineering technology covers biomechanics, medical imaging, and biomaterials. It also includes genetic engineering and even computational biology.

You may go on to design, build, and programme surgical robots. Or perhaps you’ll be involved in artificial organs, advanced prosthetics, and maybe even life-changing pharmaceutical drugs. It’s varied and challenging but, ultimately, it’s a hugely rewarding career.

And we make sure you’re prepared for it.
