Focus on applying engineering and technology knowledge to develop medical devices and systems with clinical needs to monitor health and wellbeing at an individual and a population level. Train in our advanced labs to design and develop medical technologies, devices and systems for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of human diseases.
Our course is at the forefront in the UK. Students taking the course will gain an understanding of medical conditions as well as concentrate on electronics, physiological measurement and signal processing, data analysis and medical technology implementation and assessment, and gain an understanding of a range of healthcare issues and the skills associated with technologies used to produce technology for the current market and healthcare system.
From day one, you’ll question and challenge the unmet clinical needs. You’ll adapt current procedures and solve clinical problems by applying engineering and technology knowledge in discovering new solutions in disease monitoring, diagnosis and treatment.
You’ll gain understanding in a range of healthcare issues and develop your scientific skills and enhance your ingenuity as you apply your skills across the field from analysis to evaluation.
There’s plenty of opportunity for practical work, as you carry out training and technique development in our brand new MedTech Laboratory, Clinical Skill Lab, Simulation Suite and multifunctional SuperLab.
We’ve worked with medical engineers, NHS consultants, clinicians and industry specialists to ensure you’ll constantly be gaining skills the industry requires, and you’ll experience this in the real life solutions you design and build.
We’re always looking out for what’s new in the industry, to stay ahead of the game and future-proof your career. You’ll study key issues in both an industry and clinical settings that impact on the health of modern society, including emerging and evolving issues. You’ll also consider simpler and more effective processes to shape a sustainable future.
The course is designed to prepare students for employment in a wide variety of professional careers, and help them to develop key transferable skills valued by employers. Science graduates are in demand as they offer strong analytical and problem solving skills which are highly valued across all sectors. You’ll gain valuable transferable skill such as efficient communication, leadership and management and key vocational skills, such as advanced laboratory training.
You could seek employment in knowledge industries, such as medical technology companies. Since you’ll gain the knowledge and skill to progress in both academic and clinical research, you could even undertake further training in the NHS, including the Clinical Technologist Training Scheme through an Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) accredited centre.
If you’d like to continue your studies with Anglia Ruskin we offer a Postgraduate Medical Technology programme.
We'll make sure you're progressing correctly in a number of ways, including multiple choice tests, essays, practical exams, short-answer tests, reflective essays, oral and poster presentations, scientific report writing and independent project work. In the early stages of your degree we'll use the best methods to make sure you gain a solid understanding of all the relevant subject matter. Later on, we'll focus on developing your critical appraisal skills, depth of understanding, and ability to work independently.
The Faculty of Medical Science, opened in 2014, is founded on the strong international reputation of our flagship Postgraduate Medical Institute. Based on our riverside campus in Chelmsford and Young Street campus in Cambridge, we deliver innovative and clinically relevant teaching and research across two departments:
Thanks to our close relationships with the major clinical-care providers in the east of England, there are significant opportunities for collaboration and student placements across a variety of clinical sites.
We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics. We have a flourishing community of PhD and MD(Res) students across all of our research fields.
Our advanced learning facilities include state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories and simulation suites, which mirror real-life clinical situations. We also have a fantastic, modern library and a wide range of science labs and ICT suites.
