About Medical Engineering with a Year in Industry at Cardiff University

Professional award consideration

Our formal partnership with the City and Guilds of London Institute enables you to achieve the Senior Award of Licentiateship after successfully completing your placement.

Guest lectures

Interdisciplinary content

We have links with other University departments such as Biosciences, Psychology, the Business School and Dentistry, as well as clinicians in Orthopaedics and Radiography to ensure learning material is as up to date as possible.

Industrial placement

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

Professional accreditation

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 an Incorporated Engineer and partly 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.

You will 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.

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.

If Chartered status is important to you, an MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than this BEng course.
