Because of increasing demands on the health care sector resulting from an ageing population and increasing quality of life expectations, the health care sector in general is growing and the requirement for trained engineers to work in this sector is likely to increase. Medical engineering is a relatively new area of university study, in which engineering principles are applied to medical systems, devices, and products. This paper outlines the initial design and development of a specialized degree course in Medical Engineering at the University of Bath and reports the subsequent experience with this as the degree has evolved.
