"Hull's one of the few universities that offers mechanical and medical engineering in one course."

Alice Clough
MEng Mechanical and Medical Engineering


Through an innovative combination of virtual learning and traditional teaching, you'll develop the advanced knowledge and industry-standard techniques to solve complex problems. You can also opt to boost your employability by spending a year applying what you’ve learned to real-life projects on an industrial placement.


All Mechanical and Medical and Biomedical Engineering programmes are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and are a recognised qualification towards Chartered Engineer status.


Successfully completing your studies provides a direct pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer – a benchmark in the profession.


Our degrees are focused around our modern laboratories and taught by experienced engineers and NHS clinicians.


Due to a national shortfall of skilled engineers, our graduates enjoy excellent job prospects. There are many career opportunities for medical engineers, for example, in companies that develop new medical devices, in hospitals working alongside clinical colleagues and in academic or government research facilities.
