Understand how advanced engineering and new materials are overcoming medical problems.

Our intercalated BSc in Biomedical Engineering and Clinical Materials gives students already taking a medical or dental degree the chance to achieve an additional degree in a specialist field in just one year.

Engineering technologies are becoming increasingly important across all areas of medicine, with state-of-the-art imaging, robotic surgery, tissue engineering, implantable medical devices and monitoring systems.

In this programme, you’ll study the exciting and fast-moving field of engineering and materials-based technologies within the medical environment. You’ll cover biomechanics, biomaterials, computational methods in medicine, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, medical imaging and rehabilitation technologies.

You’ll also undertake an original research project alongside leading teams at the Institute of Bioengineering, which will arm you with specialist knowledge and expertise and help you develop a host of practical and transferable skills. This research accounts for 50% of your final mark and may lead to opportunities to contribute to a conference abstract or publication.

The intercalated research project will provide:
⦁ An opportunity to pursue a research area in depth and disseminate the findings in peer-reviewed conference abstracts, scientific and medical journals.
⦁ An opportunity to pitch your research to the scientific, clinical and industry community at the Annual Intercalated Symposium and ILF events.
⦁ An opportunity to submit a patent application supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in Medical Healthcare Technology with the Queen Mary Innovation (QMI) team.
⦁ An opportunity to take part in the IMechE Healthcare Technology student and Early Career biomedical competitions and win summer research scholarships (eg. Rod Flower, Blair Bell, Barts Health, EJ Ball) and Awards (eg. Wolfson Award, Beryl Beadle, Royal College of Surgeons).
