Bioengineering’s potential to improve tomorrow’s world has made it one of the fastest growing fields in science and engineering, and number one for job growth prospects. The Department of Bioengineering offers opportunities to study at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Teaching and Learning Excellence

We are committed to the highest quality teaching and learning, and to our students’ Imperial experience both inside and outside of the lecture theatre. In the 2015 National Student Survey the Department received 97% overall student satisfaction for the MEng Biomedical Engineering undergraduate course, which is accredited by four Professional Engineering Institutions.

Visiting placements

Students interested in doing a visiting placement in the Department should first find a proposed supervisor to agree to host them by viewing the list of academic staff members and contacting the most relevant person to their research area or project. Once the supervisor agrees to host, prospective visitors must apply for the placement online. More information on placement types, how to apply and further guidance can be found at the College's visiting webpages.

The visiting student application process can take up to six weeks. Submitted applications go to Engineering Admissions for initial review before being sent to the Department. Once we receive your application, we will send it to your proposed supervisor for review. The decision on the application must then be approved by the Visiting Student Coordinator before the Department's Student Office sends it to Engineering Admissions for final processing.

Please contact the Student Office if you have any further queries about visiting the Department as a student.

Staff can view further departmental guidance on hosting visitors at the internal Policies webpage.
