University of Sheffield Bioengineering
You’ll learn how to use engineering expertise to analyse and solve problems in biology and medicine. Your study will explore how engineering and bioengineering combine in the application of engineering principles to human health.
Our flexible course gives you the opportunity to study the full breadth of bioengineering subjects in your first year. From the second year onwards, you’ll specialise in one of these four streams: biomedical engineering; medical devices and systems; biomaterials science and tissue engineering; biomanufacturing.
Project work, sometimes in groups, could see you tackling industrial problems and developing your management skills. In the third year you’ll work on a group project, and in the final year you’ll complete a major piece of individual research related to your chosen specialism.
All our students take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses you’ll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It’s designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
Financial help from the University – bursaries
If you’re a UK student, you could be entitled to a University bursary. A bursary is the same as a grant – you don’t have to pay it back.
