Why Surrey?
Running for over 50 years, our MSc is one of the longest-established biomedical engineering degree programmes in the world and has been highlighted for an ‘excellent’ grade in the UK Teaching Quality Assessment scheme as well as being highly commended by external examiners for the breadth and depth of material taught.

Programme overview
Biomedical engineering is one of the most important growth areas in the engineering sector in the first half of the twenty-first century. Internationally, the rise in demand for biomedical engineers is, and will remain, greater than in any other engineering discipline.

Our course will suit you if you want to gain the skill-set and experience required to embark on a future career within clinical engineering, the medical industry or healthcare science and research. You will benefit from a thorough taught knowledge base, covering areas such as biomaterials, biomechanics, movement analysis, human biology, instrumentation, micro-engineering, physiological measurement, medical implants, rehabilitation engineering and safety.
