TCBE TRANSITION YEAR PROGRAMME

Please note applications for 2018 will open on 30th September 2017 no applications will be accepted before this date.

As part of the TCBE Outreach, a one week transition year programme takes place each year. This one week programme programme gives 10 students a fantastic insight into biomedical engineering covering themes from neural engineering to tissue engineering to cardiovascular to medical devices. With demonstrations, talks from leading academics and hands-on experiments, students will learn about what it is like to study, research and work in bioengineering. Students spend time exploring bioengineering in the labs in TCBE's state of the art facilities. To see how medical devices are designed which make a real impact on human wellbeing, students are assigned a design project which they do in groups, building their creative thinking, teamwork and communication skills.

Entry requirements:

  • We will be only accepting 10 students for the TY  programme for  17/18
  • All students should have honours Maths
  • Questionnaire will be sent out to interested and eligible students
