Course summary

Medical Engineering applies engineering principles to the human body and a broad range of instrumentation used in modern medicine. The subject combines engineering and medicine to produce the next generation of biomedical engineers. With strong industry links the department is developing new technologies and making advances for the future of personalised health care.**Our Medical Engineering degrees have three themes:** - Biomechanics and materials – the development and analysis of materials for strength and biocompatibility- Instrumentation – advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques- Bioprocesses – physical and chemical processes in the human bodyThis degree will train you for a rewarding career in a range of sectors, including the design and manufacture of medical instrumentation and devices. You will gain engineering skills while learning about anatomy and physiology and how to communicate with clinicians. You will use analytical skills and tools to solve engineering problems relevant to medical devices and instruments industry. The degree will also provide a foundation for you to aim for the prized Chartered Engineer status.**97% of our graduates are in employment or further study within 6 months of graduating (DLHE 16/17 Graduates) – the average salary for our Medical Engineering graduates is £25,000.****Medical Engineering Facilities include:** - Electrical engineering instruments to build and test medical devices- Biomechanical modelling to optimise implant technologies- Process engineering equipment for pharmaceutical productionOur Medical Engineering courses draw on the exciting medical research taking place within the College of Engineering and the Swansea University Medical School. This success led to the creation of the £22 million Centre for NanoHealth (CNH), a unique facility linking engineering and medicine.**Accreditation**The Medical Engineering course at Swansea University is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an incorporated Engineer and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). A programme of accredited Further Learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by many countries that are signatories to international accords.**Did you know all of our courses are available with a Year in Industry or Year Abroad?** These placement years increase our students confidence and communication skills as well as help them to gain valuable experiences that will ultimately enhance their employability.
