I chose this course because I have always wanted to work in the healthcare sector. When I came across the course in LIT, I was really impressed and thought that it was the perfect combination of science, engineering and medical technology. Because of the nature of the Medical Technology industry, the coursework can change from year to year to stay up to date with this constantly evolving area.
The balance of theory and practical work is ideal as you can get hands-on experience with the medical devices and programmes used within industry and hospitals which makes it easier to understand the theory and concepts of what’s learned in class.
In 3rd year, we went on a few site visits and had Work Placement and case projects. From seeing the fast-paced environment that is MedTech, it was easy to see why this course is so important.
Doing this course in LIT, with the small class sizes, and extremely dedicated lecturers has made the whole college experience extremely enjoyable. A big part of the appeal of studying in LIT are the small campuses and that you are treated as a person and you are not known just your student number.
