Technological innovation in the field of medicine and healthcare is accelerating at an enormous pace. The modern hospital is now the centre of a technologically sophisticated healthcare system, and this requires equally technologically sophisticated staff. Clinical technologists are intimately involved in many aspects of healthcare, and are instrumental in bridging the gap between clinicians and engineers. They don’t work directly with patients, but with the technology used to support patient care. This BSc degree aims to provide you with the educational background required to act as a clinical technologist in the health service, capable of applying your knowledge to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients. As undergraduates, you will specialise in three areas including Renal, Rehabilitation and Medical Engineering allowing you to work for such departments within the NHS and clinical practices as a clinical technologist. Professional Accreditation/Recognition Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
