About the course

Medical engineering combines the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to contribute to medical device solutions and interventions for a range of diseases and trauma. This exciting and challenging course will give you a broad knowledge base in this rapidly expanding field, as well as allowing you to specialise through your choice of optional modules.

We emphasise the multidisciplinary nature of medical engineering and the current shift towards the interface between engineering and the life sciences. You could focus on tissue engineering, biomaterials or joint replacement technology among a host of other topics.

Whether you’re an engineer or surgeon, or you work in sales, marketing or regulation, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills to launch

Student Profile(s)

Shyama Ramjagsingh

There are so many great aspects of studying at Leeds, which makes it difficult to choose just one. The school genuinely cares about the success of the students so your personal tutor and module leaders are usually quite willing to assist in whatever way they can. One of the advantages of studying here is that the professors are also actively doing research so as a student, you gain this insight and you are constantly learning about the newest medical developments in the modules. Leeds is a global hub for the medical device industry, mainly in the field of orthopaedics, so there are many opportunities to visit local companies and hospitals which may not be available elsewhere.

My favourite project is definitely my thesis project, although it is still in progress. It deals with assessing the tissue damage caused by laparoscopic graspers during Minimally Invasive Surgery. The project is very hands on so I have to go into the lab and carry out some experiments. It is a very exciting opportunity to actually be involved, rather than to just analyse other people’s work and develop your thesis from it.

At Leeds, you learn many skills. With very little contact time during the MSc. programme, you naturally become a self-starter and work independently, which are qualities many jobs require. Another experience is being able to interact and work with people from multiple backgrounds and at different levels. From working with faculty members and other students from multiple backgrounds, I have learnt to communicate effectively and maintain a certain level of professionalism, which will certainly be useful in my future career.
