Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Programmes 2022-23

Discover where a undergraduate degree from UCL Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering could take you!

Join our in-person Undergraduate Open Days on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th July 2022!

Register to attend today!

When you study on a Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering degree, you’ll learn from world-leading practitioners and gain the experience and skills needed to address real-world healthcare challenges using the practical application of engineering principles, design concepts and technology.

By choosing to study with us, you will become part of a close-knit community; our undergraduate students are taught in small, intimate classes by the leading experts in their field, many of whom have active collaborations with clinicians and scientists in nearby teaching hospitals. But don't just take our word for it, chat directly with our current students and discover more about our fantastic department!

Instron Poster Exhibition

The Instron Poster Exhibition takes place in your first year and is a fantastic opportunity for you to gain valuable experience of presenting research to a panel of expert judges in a conference-style setting.

The expert judging panel comprises of industry practitioners, as well as academics and researchers for UCL Medical Physics and UCL Mechanical Engineering. They are joined by a second panel of more senior Biomedical Engineering undergraduate students who have participated in the same project in previous years and are able to give you their unique perspective and advice on the experience.

The winning project, as judged by Instron receives a prize fund and participates in the annual MPBE Student Award Celebration.

I thought it was really insightful to be able to talk to assessors and academics from different backgrounds as they all had different advice and information to provide. It was also really interesting to talk to them about their career and get an idea of what life is like as a biomedical engineer. The energy at the event was great and felt very casual while still being a formative part of our course. Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to events like it during the rest of my career.
