Subject

Biomedical engineering

Technological innovation in the field of medicine and healthcare is accelerating at an enormous pace. The modern hospital is now the centre of a technologically sophisticated healthcare system, and this requires equally technologically sophisticated staff.Clinical technologists are intimately involved in many aspects of healthcare, and are instrumental in bridging the gap between clinicians and engineers. They dont work directly with patients, but with the technology used to support patient care.This BSc degree aims to provide you with the educational background required to act as a clinical technologist in the health service, capable of applying your knowledge to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients.As undergraduates, you will specialise in three areas including Renal, Rehabilitation and Medical Engineering allowing you to work for such departments within the NHS and clinical practices as a clinical technologist. Professional Accreditation/RecognitionAccredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Assessment methods

Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented throughout all years of the course across all modules.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
