Medical Engineering (Year in Industry)

The Cardiff Medical Engineering programme is one of the best established in the UK, and is perfectly suited to anyone wishing to combine classical engineering training with a medical application. You’ll be taught by a dedicated team of research-active academic staff, and the course includes a number of lectures by colleagues from our School of Biosciences, School of Medicine and Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust. 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. 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.
