I’m a Biomedical Engineer – Interim report

In 2014, we received a People Award to run 8 I’m an Engineer zones featuring biomedical engineers between 1st April 2014 and 1st April 2017.

Read the interim report on the zones here

We have run 4 zones so far: 2 in June 2014 and 2 in June 2015. We plan to run another 4 zones in March and June 2016. We ran a Food Zone and a Health Zone in June 2014 and a Hospitals Zone and an Artificial Body (Prosthetics) Zone in June 2015.

  • 1,543 students have taken part in the WT funded biomedical engineering zones.
  • A total of 1,896 (474 per zone) questions have been asked
  • Average of 16 live chats per zone.
  • 82% of the students have actively engaged by asking questions, taking part in live chats or voting for their favourite engineer.
  • The percentage of students who thought engineering jobs were “very interesting” went from 37% pre-event to 54% post event.
  • All the engineers who filled our post-event survey say they have enjoyed the event and would recommend it to colleagues.
