Trosolwg y cwrs

The Cardiff Medical Engineering programme is one of the best established in the UK, and 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.

This four-year Cardiff MEng Medical Engineering programme offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. It 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.

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.

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. There are currently more than 65 destination universities on four continents.

Other Cardiff University Medical Engineering courses include:

  • A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of medical engineering if you choose a BEng course
  • The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option

Year three is structured around giving you the opportunity to integrate your medical and engineering knowledge as you tackle a number of realistic clinical challenges through a variety of applied modules.

The autumn semester is spent studying at a partner institution overseas for the equivalent of 50 credits. There are currently more than 65 destination universities on four continents.

The year also includes a major project, with a value of a quarter of the overall year. For this you will study individually, alongside a supervising staff member. Some preparation takes place in the autumn semester but the module is completed in the spring semester.

Recent projects have included: Linking Brain Imaging with Motion Analysis, Computational Modelling of Blood Flow in Cerebral Aneurysm, Football Injuries from Collision with the Ground, and Biomechanical Analysis of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

Teaching is through lectures, examples classes and extensive laboratory, IT and practical work. The taught modules in the first two years are largely compulsory, but options are usually available in years three and four. All students must complete a 30-credit individual project in year three, for which they are allocated a supervisor from among the teaching staff. There are opportunities for interactions with potential employers.

The international module will be delivered through the medium of English, using the delivery methods of the overseas institutions, including lectures, seminars, workshops, group work and laboratories.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be assigned a personal tutor who is a member of the academic staff associated with your degree course. Your tutor will be there to advise you on academic, non-academic and personal matters in a confidential and informal manner when you need some guidance. We aim to help you overcome any problem, however big or small, as smoothly and quickly as possible.

For the 30-credit project in year three, you will be allocated a supervisor in the broad area of research specialism and meet regularly.

You will have access through the Learning Central website to relevant multimedia material, presentations, lecture handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles. Opportunities for you to reflect on your abilities and performance are available through the Learning Central ‘Personal Development Planning’ module.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Feedback

We’ll provide you with frequent feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback in classes like design and project work and via return of marked coursework.

The opportunity to test your knowledge and understanding will be provided throughout the semester via class tests in Years 1 and 2, plus feedback on written assessments. Occasionally, peer assessment of an individual’s contribution to a group may be used, and you may also receive oral feedback on presentations and contributions to group activities.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Your progress in each module is usually assessed at various stages through each semester (through a short test) to give you feedback on your progress, then finally at the end of the appropriate semester. Assessment is undertaken using methods including formal written examinations, case studies, assignments and project work.

Examinations count for 60% to 70% of all assessment throughout the course, depending on the options chosen. The remainder is mainly project work and larger pieces of coursework, plus performance in laboratories.

The opportunity to test knowledge and understanding is given through class tests throughout years one and two, plus feedback on written assessments. Occasionally, peer assessment of an individual’s contribution to a group may be used, and students may also receive oral feedback on presentations and contributions to group activities.

Pa sgiliau bydda i’n eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

This course is accredited via the Engineering Council, meaning the core competencies of UK-SPEC (UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence) are integrated throughout the taught years of the course. 

Through lab work you will develop practical skills focused on the application of a range of engineering principles to real-life technological, regulatory and ethical problems.

You will also:

  • Develop an appreciation of how to bridge the disciplines of engineering and medicine/clinical sciences
  • Enhance your communication skills, both orally and in writing through a series of reports and assignments
  • Develop your knowledge, skills and confidence to solve multidisciplinary problems in a engineering context
  • Enhance your team-working skills, ability to exercise original thought and good professional judgement

Gyrfaoedd

Rhagolygon gyrfa

In 2015/16, 95% of the School’s graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduation.

Graduate medical engineers benefit from employment opportunities in both the medical engineering and broader mechanical engineering sector.

Recent Cardiff graduates are now employed in medical engineering companies including Finsbury Orthopaedics, DePuy Synthes and Huntleigh Medical.

Medical engineers can also carve out a career in the healthcare sector. Cardiff graduates regularly earn positions in the highly competitive clinical engineer/scientist training scheme of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (see www.ipem.ac.uk for further details), while others have used their degree as a stepping stone to other vocations.
