The Centre for Medical Engineering and Technology
Advancing societal needs and human health through the University’s strength in creative design, technological innovation and translating research into real impact on a local, national, and international scale.
The Centre for Medical Engineering and Technology brings Engineers, Physicists, and Life Scientists together with Clinicians and merges research at the interface of physics, mathematics, computing, and mechanical engineering.
The Centre is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure across both the City and Ninewells Campus, with the Tay Cities deal contributing to the refurbishment of Wilson House, which will provide high tech facilities for medical technology and create an innovation space for further interactions with industry and NHS Tayside.
The engineering research will be problem-orientated, developing solutions to clinical challenges while maintaining the link to the science and engineering developments that will provide the solutions of the future.
Healthcare of the future faces many challenges that include changing population dynamics, public expectations, need for improved delivery of care, early diagnostics and non- or minimally invasive investigations, and economic austerity.
By bridging the gap between engineering and medicine, Biomedical Engineers and Medical Technologists are best equipped to combine a diverse set of skills to create solutions to continuing worldwide health issues, helping to change how patients are treated and lowering the cost of care, and transforming people’s lives for the better.
