University of Bradford Clinical Technology BSc (Hons)

Develop the skills you need for a career as a clinical technologist, capable of applying your knowledge to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients. You will learn: *to design and manufacture medical equipment *tissue engineering and wound repair for making artificial organs *application, repair and maintenance of medical devices *to carry out physiological measurements, such as ECG, EMG, BMI, spirometry and skin analysis You will specialise in three areas – renal technology (dialysis), rehabilitation engineering (prosthetics / orthotics), and medical technology/engineering. Technological innovation in the field of medicine and healthcare is accelerating at an enormous pace. The modern hospital is now the centre of a technologically sophisticated healthcare system, and this requires equally technologically sophisticated staff. This mean you’ll be highly employable as a graduate. Professional accreditation Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Assessment method

Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented throughout all years of the course across all modules.
