Medical Engineering (International) Year in Industry

The Cardiff Medical Engineering programme is one of the most established in the UK, and is perfectly suited to anyone wishing to combine classical engineering training with a medical application. The aim of the course is to produce a highly competent engineer who can pursue a career in clinical engineering, bioengineering or engineering fields outside medicine. An added advantage of this MEng Medical Engineering (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. There are currently more than 65 destination universities on four continents. This course includes the opportunity to take a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of academic study. With this option we will support you in finding a placement that will allow you to experience at first- hand, a professional working environment. If you are successful in securing a placement you will be paid a salary and will enhance your employability skills through direct experience of working in business, industry or the public sector. The MEng allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in medical engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project. Teaching is by a dedicated team of research-active academic staff, and there are also some lectures by colleagues from Cardiff School of Biosciences, School of Medicine and Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust.
