Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering



Medical physicists apply fundamental physical principles to improve human health. They are behind many of the life-saving procedures carried out by modern medics, informing diagnosis, treatment, and the maintenance of health. Bioengineers work to produce man-made substitutes to help a failing body. They exploit the latest technology to design and build medical devices for monitoring, therapy and rehabilitation.


Some reasons to study Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics at UCL…

UCL Hospital is located next door to UCL, providing opportunities to see how medical physics is applied in real situations. The biomedical engineering and medical physics degrees draw upon the research strengths of UCL at the interface between engineering, physics and medicine; you’ll be taught by researchers at the cutting edge. “Biomedical engineering and medical physics students take many courses jointly and together with intercalating medical students. This interdisciplinary environment is an excellent preparation for team work in future employment.
