I attended a taster day on Medical Engineering at QMUL in 2012. It was very interesting and useful – we first had a lecture on what Medical Engineers do and the structure of the course at QMUL, followed by several workshops, including one on redesigning mobility aids and another more hands-on session on building an exoskeleton-based arm support.
I really enjoyed the day, and learnt more about what the course is about and what kind of careers it would lead into. We also had the opportunity to talk to current students about the course and university, which was helpful. Although I decided not to apply for a degree in Medical Engineering, realising that I was more interested in Medical Physics, it was still worth mentioning on my UCAS form and I felt that I learnt a lot.
