Careers Prospects

“I have had no problem finding work in the field after graduating and I truly love what I do every day. So far, I have worked as a part-time freelance artist, Jr. Medical Visualization Artist, Mid-Level CG Artist, and currently I am employed as a Senior Lead Artist where my responsibility is to guide a team of artists and our project to completion.”

Allison Sugden, Senior Lead Artist at, MSc Graduate, 2016

“I’m now working as a biomedical engineer in the field of medical 3D printing and I use the skills I acquired from the MSc on a daily basis. It is essential for my job to have broad and deep anatomical knowledge, something I initially gained from the very comprehensive and in-depth anatomy teaching provided on the course. The technical skills I learned allow me to take that anatomical knowledge and apply to the creation of patient specific medical devices. If I hadn’t made the decision to apply for this unique course, I wouldn’t be doing a job I love in a truly exciting and developing field.”
