Course Summary

Why choose this course

The Centre for Biomedical Engineering at the University of Surrey provides world-class research into biomechanics, biomedical engineering and tissue engineering. We have links with globally leading companies such as Blatchfords, the Transport Research Laboratory, Smith and Nephew and with hospitals across the south of England, as well as extensive international research collaboration. Many of the UK’s senior biomedical engineers were trained by us.

Our graduates have since gone on to clinical engineering positions in the NHS, design consultancies, medicine, prosthesis manufacturers, car manufacturers as safety specialists, and others. A PhD course in Biomedical Engineering will allow you to test the cutting-edge of science and make new discoveries.

What you will study

Our PhD in Biomedical Engineering will give you the knowledge, skills and expertise needed for a career in engineering, research or academia. You’ll be intellectually challenged, develop research and management skills, and become an expert in your chosen field of study.

It normally takes around three years to complete a full-time PhD. You’ll be assigned a minimum of two supervisors, who will guide you through your PhD. You’ll learn how to conduct literature reviews, develop your ideas and verify them with experiments, and collaborate and perform interdisciplinary research. Over time, we’ll develop your skills and transform you into an independent researcher.
