Biomedical Engineering is one of the fastest growing industry sectors and is part of an industry worth £150 billion globally. It is also fast becoming one of the best rewarded. As 95% of medical device companies are small and medium-sized enterprises, there is huge potential for those with an entrepreneurial spirit wishing to research and develop ideas.
Your training and experience may also offer you the opportunity to undertake further research, either within an existing organisation, or you may wish to consider setting up your own business.
Major companies, locally and internationally, such as Smith & Nephew and Johnson and Johnson, employ our graduates in the design and delivery of biomedical engineering projects. Your problem solving and mathematical skills, together with your ability to create and understand innovative concepts, plus your ability to be a team player, are reflected in a range of attractive starting salaries.
Mechanical and Medical Engineering graduates are highly sought after as Clinical Scientists and Clinical Engineers. The experience you gain while working at the University of Hull, and with our partners within the NHS, will make you an attractive prospect for a future employer.
Medicine is a highly regulated area, and this applies equally to the design and manufacture of medical devices. There is a range of opportunities available within regulatory bodies which will allow you to utilise your skills and knowledge to ensure the highest industry standards are maintained.
