What will I learn?

This combined degree is designed to provide opportunities for students interested in medical science, the scientific basis of engineering and technology, and the technology itself.

There is a strong interrelation between the progress of engineering and developments in science, and a demonstrated need for professionals with a strong understanding and experience in both areas.

A strong professional focus ensures graduates of this course learn the skills employers want with a solid link between theory and practice and the benefits of hands-on experience.

This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.
