About this program

Medical Engineering (BEng)

The Cardiff Medical Engineering program is one of the best established in the UK, and is perfectly suited to anyone wishing to combine classical engineering training with a medical application.

You’ll be taught by a dedicated team of research-active academic staff, and the course includes a number of lectures by colleagues from our School of Biosciences, School of Medicine and Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust.

The aim of the course is to produce a highly competent engineer who can pursue a career in clinical engineering, bioengineering or engineering fields outside medicine.

Note that if Chartered status is important to you, a four-year Cardiff MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than the BEng course.

Other Cardiff University Medical Engineering courses available include:

  • The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option
  • The opportunity to study abroad at a partner institution for one semester if you choose the relevant MEng (International) degree option

Admission requirements

Typical A level offer

AAB-ABB. Must include Maths. You will need to pass the science practical element of the A-level if this is part of your programme of study.

Extended/International Project Qualification: Applicants with grade A in the EPQ/IPQ will typically receive an offer one grade lower than the standard A level offer. Please note that any subject specific requirements must still be met.
