Overview

You will also develop a knowledge of how the medical device industry is regulated and how new products are introduced to the market, drawing from experience within UCD which includes pioneering companies. 

The Biomedical Engineering programme from University College Dublin prepares students to become leaders in applying advanced engineering skills to solve problems related to human health. This interdisciplinary programme employs the principles of mechanical and electronic engineering to understand human performance, analyse physiological systems and design innovative medical devices and technologies. Students learn through a combination of lectures, laboratories, group discussion and research and applied clinical projects, delivered by internationally recognised faculty with active research programmes in Biomedical Engineering. 

Students complete a professional work-placement in either the medical technologies and devices industry, in a clinical environment or with a research group in the first year of the programme, followed by a major Biomedical Engineering research project in the final year. Assessment is carried out through a mix of examination, continuous assessment of laboratory and project work, student presentations and the final year research project.

Career & Graduate Study Opportunity

The Irish Medtech Sector is robust and career opportunities upon graduation from this programme are exemplary. Exports of medical devices and diagnostics products now represent 8% of Ireland’s total merchandise exports and growth prospects for the industry globally remain good. Many of the world’s top medical technology companies have invested significantly in Ireland and a number of exciting, research-based, indigenous companies are emerging and competing internationally.

The Irish Government has identified the medical technology sector as one of the key drivers of industrial growth for the future and provides a wide range of supports to encourage and foster this growth. The medical technology industry in Ireland is changing from being predominantly manufacturing to being more complex and driven by R&D. Prospective employers include Abbott, Bio-Medical Research (BMR), Boston Scientific, De Puy, ResMed, Shimmer and Stryker.
