Course summary

The course is run by the School of Medicine in collaboration with the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine.

The aim of the MSc in Medical Engineering Design is to turn you into a Medical Device Designer so that you can work in this highly regulated design discipline. Students are able to major in three distinct areas, medical devices design, sustainable devices design and formal, structured design per se. Core modules introduce you, and immerse you in design methodology, design control, international medical devices regulations, auditing, risk management and risk analysis, team working, and medical device specific technical documentation. This enables students to become distinctive through specialism choices whilst maintain academic rigour through the study of formal engineering design.

Assessment

Modules will be assessed by a mixture of assessment methods, including lab reports, essays, presentations, and final examinations. In addition to the technical and subject specific knowledge, the course develops a range of transferable employability skills such as team working, time management and planning, written and verbal communication, and numeracy. The project dissertation forms a major component of the student’s assessed work.
