The Medical devices industry is undergoing major changes globally as many new products enter the FDA approval pipeline. The move is for more high cost products to come to be manufactured in Ireland and there is also a move towards more combined products where medical devices are now being classified not just as medical devices but also as medicines.
The Students will study techniques in Medical Device Manufacture and best practices in the industry.
Ireland, because of its favourable tax regime for the manufacturing industry, the availability of a highly trained workforce, and its long track record in successfully supporting healthcare manufacturing has gained great economic benefits by continuing to attract many of the top manufacturers to her shores. The requirement for skilled staff is essential and opportunities are arising now.
