Medical Physics and Bioengineering


As the UK’s largest academic medical physics and bioengineering department, we represent a community of around 80 academic and research staff leading innovation and discovery across an extensive range of medical physics and engineering specialisms. Students have access to a range of laboratory, workshop, teaching and clinical facilities within the department, as well as at associated hospitals and industrial partners. There is a clear focus on the development of new techniques and technologies, as well as their translation into clinically effective tools, and subsequent downstream commercial exploitation. Our MSc offers a research-informed approach to teaching, delivered by internationally recognised leaders of the field. The MSc has been accredited for many years by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

Staff View

"UCL in itself, with its amazingly diversified biomedical research, is an endless source of ideal collaborators, most of which are world leading. There are by far more interesting projects than there is time to be able to carry them out."

Dr Alessandro Olivo

Professor of Applied Physics

Student View

"I am beginning a training placement at Addenbrooke’s Hospital as a Trainee Clinical Scientist in Medical Physics. I'm so excited and would not have got the job without having done the programme at UCL."
