About Medical Engineering with a year in industry at Swansea University

Medical Engineering at Swansea

Key features

Cutting-edge research informs our medical engineering courses

Medical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to both the human body and to a broad range of instrumentation used in modern medicine.

Why study Medical Engineering at Swansea University?

As a student on the BEng Medical Engineering (with a Year in Industry) course, you will learn about the design of prosthetic devices, new biocompatible materials, and the behaviour of complex bio-molecules and fluids with the body.

Our Medical Engineering degrees have three engineering themes:

  • Biomechanics and materials: the development and analysis of materials in terms of strength and biocompatibility
  • Instrumentation: advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques
  • Bioprocesses: physical and chemical processes occurring in the human body

A strong clinical theme runs throughout the course, including case studies within engineering modules. This includes design of electrocardiograph circuitry in Level one Electrical Engineering module. Also, biological and clinical modules taught within the College of Medicine, which are specifically designed for the medical engineers.
