Ulster University has been researching medical technologies since 1990 and has been growing its capability and capacity in this area and others and since then it has been involved in many large-scale multi-disciplinary projects.

We are uniquely placed to effectively carry research and development in the exciting and rapidly changing world of connected devices and medical engineering.

The Centre leverages expertise in artificial intelligence, the design of connected devices, advanced materials and advanced prototyping to keep it at the forefront of the forthcoming medical engineering revolution.

Much of the focus is on connected health and the opportunities created by the measurement and utilisation of health data to improve patient outcomes.
