We combine engineering, medicine and biology. You’ll get hands-on with medical tech, including endoscopy and ultrasound. You’ll test biomaterials and medical devices, such as prosthetics and orthotics. You’ll practise taking physiological measurements through EMG and ECG. And you’ll work in our specialist teaching and research labs. These include the FabLab, and the Health and Human Performance Lab.
You'll learn from experts. People who teach advanced ideas on the application of mechanical engineering for a range of medical purposes. Encompassing industry-standard computer-based methods and experimental techniques. And you’ll also spend time in local hospitals gaining CV-boosting experience. We have close links with medical device companies and the NHS. Which ensures our course is relevant and responsive to current demands and future trends in medical technology.
As well as our three-year course, we offer four- and five-year options. Choose from a built-in placement year or an integrated Masters (MEng) – or both. And Mechanical and Medical Engineering shares a common first year. So you can switch degrees in the second year if you want to choose a different pathway.
