Course Description

The integrated MEng (Hons) degree in Biomedical Engineering covers a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry and draws on City's long-standing expertise in technology and healthcare.

Biomedical Engineering applies the principles of science, engineering and medicine directly to the complex medical technologies used in the prognosis, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the sick and injured. Biomedical engineers also require managerial and communication skills and an awareness of the economic, environmental and social implications of their activity. Our courses are designed to provide excellent training in all these areas.

As a student on the MEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering course you will:

  • Prepare for an exciting highly-skilled career in a rapidly growing field.
  • Learn from leading academics and experts in the medical industry.
  • Have the opportunity to complete a placement after your third year.
  • Work with teams from prominent clinical institutions including St Bartholomew's Hospital, The Royal London Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
  • Undertake a major individual research project.

Course Content

On the Biomedical Engineering course, you will cover a range of engineering applications that are relevant to the needs of the healthcare industry. Subjects covered include measurement, data analysis, mechatronics, biosignal and image processing, medical physics, biomedical instrumentation and biomedical optics.

The MEng (Hons) course covers further modules on biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical sensors, bioinformatics and telemedicine.

In Part 4 MEng students will be involved in design project, which is a key part of the integrated Master's degree action as a transition from formal education to professional life. Project work embraces not only the technical aspects of design using advanced engineering tools but develops professional skills such as management, team building and business. The focus of all the projects is the delivery of a substantial machine or device in an international context, incorporating the latest thinking in technology as supported by our engineering research activities. Motivation levels in such projects are extremely high and the experience offers graduates opportunities to excel in job interviews with project achievements as exemplars of what they have delivered.

Year 1

Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs.

Year 2

Students begin to specialise in Biomedical Engineering in year two while also studying measurement, data analysis and mechatronics.

Year 3

The third year includes biosignal and image processing, medical physics and biomedical instrumentation, together with biomedical optics.

Year 4

can select one of the following options: European Global Product Design (EGPR), Formula Student, Aircraft Design Project or Gas Turbine project. Please note that project availability may vary year to year dependent on student cohort size, demand and resource constraints.

Entry Requirements

We may demonstrate some flexibility of entry requirements in Clearing. This will depend on the results we receive and the number of spaces we have available.

Applications through Clearing are likely to be considered on a case by case basis, but an indication of the level at which offers may be considered for International Baccalaureatestudents is as follows:

  • 30 points and above, including Higher Level Mathematics at grade 5

If you are an applicant who has completed qualifications outside of the UK then we encourage you to visit our country pages ahead of calling our Clearing hotline. On these pages you will find information on equivalent grades City will be applying during the Clearing process for students applying from Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain and the USA.

Entry requirements in Clearing for A-Level students will be published on 15th August. Details of the standard entry requirements for 2019 are shown below.

Standard requirements

  • 'A' Level: ABB (including Mathematics).
  • Tariff: 128 UCAS tariff points, including 'A' Level Mathematics. Read more about the new UCAS tariff from September 2017.

The following is also required:

  • GCSE: A minimum of grade 4 (C) in GCSE English.

Other suitable qualifications

  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ): We welcome applications that include the EPQ. Where relevant, this may be included in our offer, resulting in an 'A' Level offer reduced by one grade.

If you do not qualify for direct entry, you may wish to take a foundation programme first. These programmes are designed to prepare students for entry to City's undergraduate courses.

English requirements

If your first language is not English, we will require evidence of English language proficiency. Minimum requirements are:

  • IELTS: 6.0 overall with a minimum of 6.0 in each component.
  • PTE Academic: 58 overall with a minimum of 51 in each component.

English language programmes

Don't meet the English language requirements? INTO City, University of London offers English language programmes to help prepare you for study at university. These intensive and flexible courses are designed to improve your English ability for entry to degree courses.

  • Academic English
  • Pre-sessional English
