Subject

Bioengineering

Bioengineering at Sheffield is geared towards students who want a career in the field. The way we teach reflects how the industry works. Spending a year on placement as part of your course gives you an added advantage in the jobs market – as well as being paid a salary, you will make contacts and gain invaluable experience.

Bioengineers don’t work in isolation. You will study in various departments, learning from experts in related branches of engineering as well as computer scientists and biologists. There are group projects and you’ll take part in the faculty’s Global Engineering Challenge, a team exercise designed to make you a better engineer.

All our bioengineering courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). The MEng also meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Graduates use their engineering skills to design medical instruments, repair body tissue and develop new processes in drug production. They work industry and the public sector alongside scientists, medical professionals, therapists and technicians.

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?
