Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering at UCL is one of the largest such departments in Europe. In 2014, we launched innovative new BEng and MEng degrees in Biomedical Engineering. These programmes include a range of new departmental and cross-faculty modules, incorporating problem and scenario-based learning at all stages. This creates a highly engaging learning environment where students put their theoretical knowledge to practical application. In addition, all programmes have major projects in the final year or years where students work on a major design or research topic.

In addition, we run a range of other undergraduate and graduate degree programmes and are also proud to host internationally-leading research groups covering a broad range of activities and spread over several sites. Our staff and students have a diverse range of interests and expertise, covering many areas of physics, engineering, medicine, physiology, computer science, and mathematics.
