Biomedical engineering, like the name suggests is a cross between biomedical science and engineering. You are essentially using your knowledge of mechanical engineering to apply core principles to biological structures and tissue.
You role once graduated will likely be in the field of developing medical devices for example prosthetics or regenerative medicine (grafts, stem cells, new organs etc).
This course will likely be accredited by the institute of mechanical engineers.
You will encounter modules that include fundamental of mechanical engineering, mathematics, thermodynamics, mechanical engineering practice, and much more core STEM subjects! Truly a universal degree with great job prospects wherever you go!
Should You study
If you have a passion for maths, physics and engineering, but you also want to help people recover from debilitating health conditions, this is basically the perfect role for you!
You will learn to apply your engineering training to real-life issues that may change someones life for the better, permanently!
People in need of new limbs, organs, or tissue grafts need biomedical engineers!
Don’t ever worry about not knowing enough maths or science to enrol on this degree! As long as you meet the minimum entry requirement, you should apply! Courses like this are often under-subscribed! If however you want a more solid engineering background you should consider mechanical engineering which can actually be more tough and more maths based!
