This Biomedical Engineering programme offers you the opportunity to take up a placement year working in industry in your third year.
The placement year is an excellent way to develop your professional experience, build industry contacts, and gain insight into the day-to-day work of a professional biomedical engineer.
During the second year we’ll offer you all the support you need to find a placement that is aligned to your career aspirations and personal interests. These include sessions on CVs, interviews etc. from the Careers service at the University and presentations by both employers and previous year's students on their placements. Once on placement you’ll have support and guidance from a placements tutor, who will monitor your progress.
Our students have undertaken placements with organisations such as:
- DePuySynthes (Johnson & Johnson)
- Smith & Nephew
- Biomet Healthcare UK
- GE Healthcare
- Stanmore Orthopaedics
- Smiths Medical
- IMI Precision Manufacturing
- Siemens AG
After completing your placement you’ll return to complete the final year of the programme, and apply all you’ve learnt to your final project. Many students continue their relationship with their placement employers, working for them part-time or returning to work in graduate positions after finishing their studies.
