Course Summary

Course description

Our MSc Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine course gives students from biological, engineering and/or medical-related backgrounds the specialist knowledge and research skills to pursue a career in this field.

You will focus on strategies to repair, replace and regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems, gaining insights into topical issues including stem cells, polymer technology, biomaterial fabrication/characterisation and gene delivery. You will learn how to identify major clinical needs and formulate novel therapeutic solutions.

This course has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience. You will learn practical skills through both taught modules and a 25-week laboratory-based research project.

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine as a discipline shows enormous potential for future health and, economically, there is a national demand for specific interdisciplinary training in this area.

We have a vast research network in this field comprising international experts from multiple disciplines and, as such, this course is a collaborative degree from the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health and the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

Coursework and assessment

You will be assessed continually during the year through:

  • oral presentations;
  • group participation;
  • multiple choice questionnaires;
  • written reports;
  • a final dissertation.

Career opportunities

After the course, many students continue their studies and register for a PhD.

However, the course is also of value to students wishing to progress in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or regenerative medicine sectors, or go into specialist clinical training.

It is also ideal for MBChB intercalating students who wish to undertake directly channelled research training in the tissue engineering/regenerative medicine field.

Modules

The Research Methods Course is a 15 credit, interactive blended learning course which provides students with an introduction to key material required for the design, execution and interpretation of medical, scientific and clinically-related research and the production of a high quality dissertation.

Entry requirements

We require an honours degree (minimum Upper Second) or overseas equivalent : biological sciences; medical sciences; biomedical materials; dentistry; veterinary medicine; pharmacology. This course is also available for intercalating medical students, both from the University of Manchester and other UK universities. For intercalating MBChB students, we require satisfactory achievement in Years 1 to 4. You can fail, but you must pass the resit and progress through the course. There should be no failure in the year before intercalation.
