Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to both the human body and the machines and instrumentation used in modern healthcare.

Our Biomedical Engineering graduates acquire a broad and comprehensive skillset in engineering, gain vital experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the ability to communicate with clinicians.

Previous graduates have gone on to have interesting careers at companies such as Renishaw, Calon Cardio-Technology Ltd, Olympus Surgical Technologies, NHS, GE Healthcare and Royal Navy.

You will study around a thriving research community at Swansea University as our degrees draw on the exciting biomedical research taking place in our Biomedical Engineering Simulation and Testing (BEST) laboratory. This links student projects to the latest developments in the field and ensures they are relevant to today’s clinical challenges.
