BEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering

Vivek

Biomedical Engineering

Welcome to the BEng (Hons) / MEng Biomedical Engineering degree. Your exciting journey to higher education starts right here! Over the course of the next three to four years you will learn and grow as critical, independent, reflective, technical and innovative practitioners in the field of Biomedical Engineering. Through a range of learning and teaching styles, you will be challenged to work independently and as a team to develop your critical thinking, knowledge and understanding of various current issues surrounding; Science, Technology and Engineering

Engineering in general is meant to be technical, therefore this degree programme will be taught in more of a problem-based approach complimented by various theoretical concepts across two Faculties (Health, Education and Life Sciences (HELS) and Computing, Engineering and Built Environment (CEBE)). You will learn by ‘doing’ via a ‘hands-on’ approach. The application of theory into practice is a key ingredient in obtaining future employment. Consequently, you will be encouraged to demonstrate and apply taught theories in a range of practical settings. Support will always be on hand from the academic staff team to help you through your journey, and the ‘family feel’ ethos instilled across the University, means that you can confidently approach any member of staff within the programme team across both the Faculties.

The following three to four years will pass by the time you realise, and you will no doubt make some amazing friends who you share this experience with. Many of which, you will remember for life. I would actively encourage you to share and enjoy each moment together. Face challenges together, and celebrate successes together, but most importantly, learn together. Indeed, peer learning (learning from each other) can be a tool to help encourage higher ordered thinking, critical reflection and develops you as a mature, confident, knowledgeable and industry prepared practitioner.

‘There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education - Known is a drop and unknown is an ocean. The whole of life, is a process of learning’.

May I take this opportunity, on behalf of the programme team, to wish you all the very best with your studies on this integrated masters programme. We look forward to getting to know you personally as you begin your adventure with us here at Birmingham City University.
