The MedMakers

The MedMakers are a student club at the University of Newcastle for those interested in the medical engineering field. Our club hosts events and activities like:

  • Skill-building sessions such as introductory CAD workshops and interview coaching,
  • Networking nights with our local med-tech industry partners, and
  • Medical device projects for our members to work on, either with our industry partners or as part of a student team.

While we are oriented around medical engineering, our membership is not limited to medical engineers nor students studying an engineering degree! Our workshop events are relevant to anyone looking to broaden or enhance their skillset. Industrial placement, work experience and scholarships are encouraged and promoted for club members. Our club is a great way to meet like-minded people, get started on any idea you had in mind, or to connect with the professional world.
