Graduates will extend their engineering skills and technical knowledge to work in partnership with healthcare clinicians and other medical experts, acquiring grounding in the culture and ethics of the healthcare profession. This is a new programme with a novel cross-institutional approach, sharing modules in Dublin City University, the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland and Maynooth University.
Module themes include medical sciences, biomedical engineering, advanced control theory, computer vision, healthcare ethics, law, risk management and signal modelling and compression.
This programme will empower graduates to be the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs in the healthcare technologies sector. Within healthcare services, graduates will find work in software and engineering of healthcare systems and in developing new medical and clinical devices.
