Subject

Biomedical engineering

The emphasis at Hull is on providing you with the skills you need to succeed in this revolutionary and fast-growing industry. You will be taught in our state-of-the-art laboratories by experienced engineering professionals and by NHS clinicians and clinical engineers from local hospitals. Through an innovative combination of virtual learning systems and traditional teaching, you will develop the techniques needed to solve complex problems. You will also learn practical dissection skills in the laboratory in order to gain a complete understanding of human anatomy and the medical engineering issues which may arise for operating surgeons. Combine this with the opportunity to boost your employability by spending your penultimate year either applying the theory learned in previous years to real life projects on industrial placement, or by studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Asia, North America or Australia. The option of a Masters year allows you to take your studies to the highest level as an undergraduate. Visit our website to find out more.
