Medical Engineering applies engineering principles to the human body, in pursuit of an advanced and personalised style of future healthcare.
Combining engineering with the instrumentation used in modern medicine promises to generate important new technologies which touch and extend all our lifetimes. You can be at the heart of it.
The integrated Engineering Foundation Year programme can lead to any full engineering degree. It is not a qualification in its own right, but the first year of a four-year BEng degree.
This degree prepares you for a rewarding career across a range of sectors. You will gain core engineering skills while learning about anatomy, physiology and communication with clinicians.
As you progress, your developing analytical and problem-solving abilities will combine with hands-on experience of industrial medical devices and instruments, establishing skills that are vital to employment in the wider industry.
