Program Overview

There is an increasing demand for bioengineers whose knowledge of engineering, maths and the physical sciences serves society's desire to develop new technology, machinery, and the advanced treatment and therapies needed to combat rising health problems.

Bioengineering – also referred to as biomedical engineering – applies traditional engineering techniques to primarily solve medical and biological problems, inventing new equipment, materials, methods and processes to safely and accurately diagnose patients, improve medical treatment and its outcomes. It is responsible for innovations ranging from prosthetic limbs and heart valves, to tissue, stem cell research and gene modification.

This Master of Research (MRes) is a research-based programme of study, which enables you to develop advanced research skills and conduct in-depth research, under the supervision of one of our many leading experts in bio and medical engineering. From the outset, you will focus your studies by choosing one of two available pathways – Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Engineering (MCT) or Biomedical Engineering (BME).

By way of example, research by one previous MCT pathway student, under the supervision of Professor Nick Forsyth, involved mucous profiling of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) patient-derived small-airway models. Another BME pathway student, under the supervision of Professor Peter Ogrodnik, assisted the development of an experimental model of flexible walled blood vessels.
