BEng and MEng in Biomedical Engineering

The UCL Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering is one of the largest of its kind in the UK. They offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Engineering (Biomedical) BEng

This programme provides a grounding in the practical application of engineering principles to healthcare technologies.

Engineering (Biomedical) MEng

Building on the BEng, the additional year in this four-year MEng programme allows you to explore a broader spectrum of biomedical engineering and medical physics topics, and to further develop your transferable skills through project work.
