This is a structured distance-learning package for clinical and healthcare technologists who wish to develop their expertise at postgraduate level but who do not wish to disturb their career by taking time out. It is run jointly by staff at the Cathays and Heath Park campuses.
The aim of the course is to provide clinical and healthcare technologists with the engineering grounding and the specialised skills required to succeed in their profession. The taught material is delivered during Year 1 and Year 2 of the programme.
Topics covered on the course include:
- Clinical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Medical Aspects
- Mathematics and Statistics
- Electronics and Instrumentation
Assessment is carried out through coursework and examination.
Suitable for graduates in Engineering, Physics and related disciplines employed in the healthcare sector and mature students with suitable qualifications and experience.
An upper second class Honours UK degree (or equivalent) from a British or recognised overseas university is required. Applicants with relevant professional experience are also considered.
Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to pass either IELTS/TOEFL exams, for which the minimum requirement is IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 600 (250 for computer-based test).
NB: Although the degree programme is largely distance learning, applicants should note that the course requires students to attend lectures and practical sessions over 4 separate weekends in Cardiff for each year of the course. Students will also be expected to attend an examinations weekend each year in May.
