About Medical Engineering (International) with a Year in Industry at Cardiff University

Graduate privileges

Graduates take a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the BEng students.

Industrial placement

You will gain valuable experience working in a paid role at an organisation in the UK or abroad for one academic year.

Semester abroad

You will spend a semester studying abroad at one of our English-speaking partner institutions in Europe or further afield in Australia, the United States, China and more.

Guest lectures

You will have the opportunity to engage with professionals from healthcare providers such as the Cardiff and Vale Orthopaedic Centre, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, and the Medical Physics Department.

Professionally accredited course

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

This course 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.

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.

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.

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. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.

You will have 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.

Other medical engineering courses include a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of medical engineering if you choose a BEng course.

    Cardiff really is surrounded by some scenic gems. It’s in the middle of everything and is so well connected with transport links that you can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere you want.

    I chose Cardiff because it felt right. It was the first open day I attended and even on that first visit I just really liked the feel of the city, with it already feeling like home.
