Course Summary

This course equips you to analyse and solve problems using an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. The course involves lectures and practical work in the first term, followed by full-time work on a research project. Graduates therefore gain substantial research experience. A variety of seminars and workshops are also provided to deepen and broaden your skill base. The course welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds, including life or medical sciences graduates who wish to develop their engineering skills and students with MEng or similar degrees who would like to build their research experience. Developed to prepare students for a bioengineering research career, this course equips you to analyse and solve problems using an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. Given the substantial research component, applicants are expected to identify and ideally make contact with potential research supervisors prior to application. See the ‘How to Apply’ for more. You can also take this course as the first year of a four-year PhD programme. The MRes course provides particularly solid foundation for progression to a PhD. The Department of Bioengineering also works closely with industry to ensure courses equip graduates with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills valued in the workplace, for example in medical start-ups or pharmaceutical companies. Assessment involves the following: Coursework; Oral presentations; Research thesis; written examinations and written reports
