The Irish Medical Devices Association (IMDA), the Ibec association that represents the medical technology sector and IMDA Skillnet, today launched a pilot Higher Certificate in Medtech Engineering (NFQ Level 6) programme at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT).

The programme was developed in response to an industry wide consultation which found that manufacturing will play a crucial role in our economic recovery. As the Medtech manufacturing environment becomes more complex, there is a requirement for new skill sets.

The programme will include metrology, industrial automation, metal forming processes and electrical technologies, and will run over 16 weeks at GMIT.
