UCL (University College London)
Physics and Engineering in Medicine (Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging)
This programme pathway is designed for students with a developing interest in the engineering aspects of technology that are applied in modern medicine. Students gain an understanding of bioengineering principles and practices that are used in hospitals, industries and research laboratories through lectures, problem-solving sessions, a research project and collaborative work.
A minimum of a 2nd class UK Honours degree in physics, engineering, computer science, mathematics, or another closely related discipline, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Workplace knowledge and expertise are also considered. Applicants with a lower than 2nd Class degree may be invited for a short online interview with programme tutors as part of their application process.
Core modules: imaging with ionising radiation; clinical practice; magnetic resonance imaging and optics; medical electronics and control; viva module. Options: aspects of biomedical engineering; optics in medicine; computing in medicine; medical devices and applications.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, practicals, assignments and a research project. Lecturers are drawn from UCL and from London teaching hospitals including UCLH, St. Bartholomew's, and the Royal Free Hospital. Assessment is through supervised examination, coursework, the dissertation and an oral examination.
