What will I learn?

We all naturally have the desire for ourselves, family and friends to lead a long and healthy life. Medical Engineers play a vital role in healthcare sector from designing, developing, maintaining, and improving components in medical instruments, rehabilitation, prostheses or joint replacements. So if you’re looking for a rewarding career that really makes a difference to people’s lives this course could be for you. The course begins by covering the fundamentals of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, such as electronics, mechatronics, mechanics and robotics so you’re confident in the basics. Then in your second year we’ll introduce you to anatomy, specifically gait analysis, which is the study of joint biomechanics and the movement of the legs and feet during walking and running. You’ll look at material properties, learning how materials are selected to operate in the challenging environment of the human body. You’ll also learn how medical imaging technologies work, with hands on experience of X-Ray machines, CT scans and Ultrasonic technologies, which are used in daily clinical practice. Human disease and injury will be covered in your third year, we’ll get you thinking about the consequences and potential diagnosis options. You’ll also look at the range of individualised medical devices, and their mechanical design techniques, which includes 3D printing solutions. We want to help you go on to become a leader, so during the final year of your integrated Master’s you’ll study modules relating to management. We take a broader view of the commercial aspects of the industry, and you’ll study project management, as well as delving deeper into the range of technologies at the cutting edge of healthcare, for example, Virtual Reality (VR), robotics, the Internet of Things (IOT) and big data mining and analysis. Additional costs: You’ll need to cover the cost of your safety boots, which are a compulsory requirement. The cost will be dependent on where you purchase your boots, but typically you can purchase them online from between £8.99 and £19.99.
