Teaching in the Medical Engineering Design course from Keele University takes place at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a dedicated research facility located on the Royal Stoke University Hospital site, and also at the main University Campus. The School of Medicine is one of the top-ranked in the UK, and the research institute has an international reputation for world-leading research in medical engineering and healthcare technologies.
The School embraces specialists working in Royal Stoke University Hospital, County Hospital in Stafford and specialist Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry. You therefore have the opportunity to specialise in any of the varied clinical disciplines offered at these hospitals.
The School also runs MSc courses in Biomedical Engineering and in Cell and Tissue Engineering, and an EPSRC and MRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training, ensuring a stimulating academic environment for students and many opportunities for engaging with further study and research.
The aim of the MSc in Medical Engineering Design is to convert you into a Medical Engineering Designer so that you can work in this highly regulated design discipline. Students are able to major in three distinct areas, medical devices design, sustainable devices design and formal, structured design per se, because the course develops your creative engineering design skills you will be able to transfer the skills and knowledge you develop into a range of industries.
Career areas include, engineering design or Intellectual Property protection (a patent lawyer for example), technical sales, consultancy or corporate finance, as well as progressing into research and development within an industry or in academia environment.
