Medical engineers are competent classical engineers who apply engineering principles to the development of medical treatments, applications or diagnostic technologies that can enhance and save lives. They work in fields with medical applications, such as clinical instrumentation and devices, bioengineering, and clinical engineering, as well as engineering fields outside of medicine.

This accredited course provides the knowledge, skills and hands-on experience you need to become a work-ready medical engineer. You will choose from a range of authentic engineering problems and industry-focused scenarios, to work on both individually and with student engineers from other disciplines. Group work mirrors the relationships of an engineering team and will help you to build professional skills, such as teamwork and communication. Our dedicated labs and open-access maker spaces provide a place for you to design, create and collaborate.

You will have the opportunity to engage with professionals from healthcare providers such as the Cardiff and Vale Orthopaedic Centre and will benefit from links with companies like Biomet, Simpleware and Arthritis Research UK.
