Bioengineering is at the interface of engineering, medicine and the life sciences. It is a rapidly evolving inter-disciplinary field that applies engineering principles and technology to medical and biological problems.
Our Department is growing! Over the last 5 years the number of students studying Bioengineering has incresaed signficantly, reflecting the growing need in industry and academia for graduate Bioengineers. As a result, we now offer two four-year MEng undergraduate degrees - which means more students than ever before will have the opportunity to study with us. If your pre-university qualification includes the study of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry then you are eligible to apply for either or both of the MEng programmes.

The curriculums provide integrated training in engineering, mathematics, and biomedical science as a preparation for a variety of careers in engineering, science, healthcare or business. Since 2013 we have offered the option of doing a year in industry. Imperial College works closely with employers and industry, including Industrial Advisory Panels, to design undergraduate courses which provide graduates with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills and to encourage students to take internships and placements. Find out more about placements and internships for students in the Department here.
Our admissions team is happy to meet with interested students to talk more about our department and the courses we offer. If you are able to get to South Kensington then a departmental tour can be included in your visit; if you are not able to get to South Kensington then a Skype/Facetime meeting can be arranged.
