    Course Summary

    The University of Reading’s Biomedical Engineering BEng degree lets you learn about and take part in the development of new advances in medical technology, prosthetics, rehabilitation and neural engineering. You’ll even have the opportunity to contribute directly to this field with your final year research project, conducted at reading’s world class facilities and with the guidance of some of the top researchers in this field.

    This program is ideal for students with technical aptitude and a drive to learn more about human physiology. Those who want to learn not just how the brain works, but how it can be modified, rehabilitated or even improved upon.

    Students will learn exciting new ways to treat, prevent and diagnose diseases and injuries with advanced engineering principles. You’ll also prepare yourself to take a place in a rapidly growing industry with a very rewarding pay scale.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a 3 year program for most students

    Year 1:

    In your first year, you’ll focus on gaining a solid background in mathematics and biology, as well as the first steps towards your mastery of biological engineering. Your core curriculum will consist of:

    • Programming
    • Physics for biomedical engineering
    • Mathematics
    • Key skills in biomedical engineering
    • Human physiology
    • Electronics
    • Building blocks of life

    Year 2:

    In your second year, you will look at more complex biomedical sciences and electronic engineering, with courses like:

    • Signal processing
    • Sensors and transducers for biomedical engineering
    • Introduction to bioinformatics and computational biology
    • Fundamentals of neuroscience
    • Digital and embedded technologies
    • Biomedical systems design and project management
    • Biocybernetics

    You’ll also have access to electives such as:

    • Summer placement
    • Natural and artificial robotics
    • Clinical biomedicine
    • Biologically inspired computing

    Year 3:

    Year 3 has only one ‘core’ module, your Individual Project. Most of your class time will be taken up by electives, such as:

    • Systems biology
    • Synthetic biology
    • Medical imaging
    • Brain-computer interfaces
    • Biomechanics
    • Biomaterials and tissue engineering
    • Bioinstrumentation
    • Assistive technology and rehabilitation engineering

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Reading’s teaching strategy has 2 main points:

    • Increasing student engagement with an ever evolving new Curriculum Framework and more robust assessment practices focusing on feedback and student-led improvements
    • Supporting its extremely diverse student population in many ways, both academically and personally, using curricular and co-curricular development programs

    Career Possibilities

    Of course, this degree program prepares students to take up careers in the biomedical sciences or an engineering position in the industry that has arisen around them. The skills you’ll learn in experimental design, teamwork, and the gathering and interpretation of quantitative data could lead to a career in nearly any industry, though.
