Sophisticated engineering is at the heart of healthcare systems around the world.
As part of this innovative course, you'll study the electrical, electronic and mechanical aspects of healthcare in the context of a wider education in engineering.
You'll develop a specialist knowledge of medical engineering concepts and learn how to create technology that could have a huge impact on clinical systems, diagnosis and care.
We build employability into every aspect of our courses, meaning that alongside developing an in-depth understanding of your subject, you'll gain a range of transferable skills that will allow you to take on a career in a number of sectors and thrive in management roles.
We're first among surveyed Russell Group universities for 'The Teaching on my Course' and "Academic Support" (National Student Survey 2019).
The skills you'll learn are directly relevant to the latest developments in engineering such as robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and immersive technology.
Extensive project work throughout your course allows you to experience the management, coordination and decision-making processes required by engineers. You'll develop key transferable and managerial skills.
At the beginning of your course, you'll develop a solid foundation in mechanical, electrical and electronic principles and programming.
You'll take part in extensive laboratory sessions and hands-on project work, during which you'll have the chance to build an innovative medical device, an environmental monitoring station and a robotic water collection and analysis device.
In the final two years of your course, you'll begin to specialise in medical engineering. You'll study topics in clinical and biomedical engineering and consider the role of electronics in medicine. You'll also be able to choose a number of option modules, meaning you can learn more about other aspects of the discipline.
There are opportunities for you to spend time abroad during your course:
You'll study five core modules and build an innovative medical device in groups as part of a hands-on practical project.
In addition to the above you will also need to complete our online Academic Integrity module.
This module covers some of the essential skills and knowledge which will help you to study independently and produce work of a high academic standard which is vital for success at York.
This module will:
You'll study five core modules. As part of your stage 2 project, you'll work together with other students to design and implement an environmental monitoring station.
In your third year, you'll study five core modules. As part of your group project, you'll create a robot designed to collect water and assess it for the presence of the diseases. You'll also choose three option modules.
In your final year, you'll complete a major individual project and study two core modules. You'll also choose two option modules.
Please note, modules may change to reflect the latest academic thinking and expertise of our staff.
Every course at York has been designed to provide clear and ambitious learning outcomes. These learning outcomes give you an understanding of what you will be able to do at the end of the course. We develop each course by designing modules that grow your abilities towards the learning outcomes and help you to explain what you can offer to employers.

“Students from all backgrounds achieve consistently outstanding outcomes”
The TEF Panel, Office for Students, June 2018
Our Gold Teaching Excellence Framework award demonstrates our commitment to the delivery of consistently outstanding teaching and learning for our students.
You’ll work with world‐leading academics who’ll challenge you to think independently and excel in all that you do. Our approach to teaching will provide you with the knowledge, opportunities, and support you need to grow and succeed in a global workplace. Find out more about our approach to teaching and learning.
Our courses are highly intensive. Your timetabled activities each week will include:
Throughout your degree, you'll work together with other students to create usable devices. This extensive project work is a key component of your degree and will give you the opportunity to not only develop a solid knowledge of engineering design and construction principles, but also key project management, teamwork and leadership skills that are indispensable to employers.
In your final year, you'll complete a major individual project supervised by an academic member of staff.
You'll also be expected to spend time studying independently. As you progress through your course you'll take on more independent study, guiding your own learning and developing your project management skills.
Everyone learns at a different rate, so the number of hours will vary from person to person. In UK higher education the expectation is that full-time students will spend 1,200 hours a year learning.
We have a range of facilities available including laboratory space, recording studios, digital media suite and computing classrooms.
You will be based in the Department of Electronic Engineering, on Campus West.
Most of your contact hours will be in the Department of Electronic Engineering, with some additional teaching on Campus West.
Our beautiful green campus offers a student-friendly setting in which to live and study, within easy reach of the action in the city centre. It's easy to get around campus - everything is within walking or pedalling distance, or you can always use the fast and frequent bus service.
Your assignments will be designed not just to test your knowledge but also to challenge you to creatively apply what you've learned. We use a variety of assessment styles, including a practical portfolio. You'll encounter all of them during your course, but the exact balance will depend on the modules you choose:
You'll receive written feedback on work you hand in to help you understand your grade and develop your skills. For your individual project you'll produce a written report, have a viva (a presentation and question/answer session) and also show your project on our demo day, which our external advisory board attend.
