Why choose Medical Engineering?

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

The course draws on the exciting medical research that is taking place within the College of Engineering and the Swansea University Medical School. The research success in the two colleges led to the creation of the £22 million Centre for NanoHealth (CNH), a unique facility linking engineering and medicine.

Our Medical Engineering graduates gain the skills of engineering alongside the added experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the ability to communicate with clinicians.

Our graduates go on to have interesting careers at companies such as Renishaw, Calon Cardio-Technology Ltd, Olympus Surgical Technologies, NHS, GE Healthcare and Royal Navy. Within 6 months of graduating, 97% of our graduates are in work or further study (16/17 DLHE).
