BEng Biomedical Engineering at King's
Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the field of medicine. Biomedical engineers use engineering, mathematics and computational tools to simulate and understand real world medical engineering problems.
The new BEng Biomedical Engineering programme at King's is designed to train the next generation of biomedical engineers working in healthcare research and development.
King's College London is recognised as one of the international leaders in medical engineering and physics education. The programme provides a foundation in mathematics, engineering and science within a focused biomedical engineering curriculum. Graduates can specialise in medical engineering and medical physics and many have gone on to further study in medicine.
Throughout these pages you will read about practical applications for the biomedical engineering degree, the opportunity to arrange for our lecturers to visit your school and further information about biomedical engineering as a career.
To see what Biomedical Engineers can produce:
Andy King talks about research that combines medical imaging with techniques from virtual reality to improve the safety and reliability of surgery:

Rapid advances in computing now provide a new and powerful tool for understanding the triggers and progression of heart disease. In this video Professor Nicolas Smith, Head of Department, discusses how medical imaging is linking to mathematics order to understand exactly how the heart's function is impaired in disease. This approach is currently an important component of the way in which Biomedical Engineering is transforming the delivery of personalised medicine in the 21st century hospital.
