Medical Engineering at Swansea University draws on the exciting medical research taking place within the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine. The research success in the two colleges led to the creation of the £22 million Centre for NanoHealth (CNH), a unique facility linking engineering and medicine.


The entry requirements for the BEng Medical Engineering degree are:

BBB at A level (including Mathematics).

Other recommended subjects include:
Further Mathematics
Design Technology

BBB is our standard offer for students who are studying 3 A levels, but we recognise the individual nature of each application and so the standard offer should be viewed only as a guide. In some circumstances we may make different offers or points offers where appropriate, e.g. ‘300 UCAS points including 100 in Mathematics’.

Or 32 at IB (preferably including good HL marks in Mathematics).

Students studying for BTEC qualifications require DDD - DDM plus B grade at A level Mathematics. Studying A level Mathematics alongside a BTEC qualification is our strongly recommended entry pathway for those studying BTEC qualifications. Students not studying A level Mathematics, alongside their BTEC qualification, require D*DD-DDD with D in ‘Mathematics for Technicians’ and D in ‘Further Mathematics for Technicians’, plus minimum GCSE grades of B in Mathematics and 2 x B grades in Science/Engineering/Manufacturing.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.

If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.

Salidas profesionales

As a student on the BEng Medical Engineering course, you will gain the skills of engineering, whilst also providing employers with the added experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the ability to communicate with clinicians.

Job opportunities in the field of medical engineering are good and cover a wide range of careers. These include established technologies such as the design and manufacture of medical instrumentation and devices. For example, dialysis machines and artificial hip joints.

Opportunities also exist for clinical engineers within the NHS. They provide a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic services in collaboration with medical professionals.

Funding for medical research is growing rapidly and is likely to continue to grow. There is an increasing need for researchers to work at the interface between the traditional disciplines of physical and biomedical sciences.


Our BEng Medical Engineering graduates gain the skills of engineering, whilst also providing employers with the added experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the ability to communicate with clinicians.

Our courses are designed so that graduates have sufficient strength in engineering to be able to function effectively as a mainstream engineer.
