This MSc will equip you with state-of-the-art knowledge of biomaterials, bioengineering, tissue engineering, medical engineering and related management topics. Delivered by experts from across UCL and eminent visiting lecturers from industry and medical charities, this interdisciplinary programme attracts physical sciences, engineering and life sciences graduates, including those with qualifications in medicine.

About this degree

You will develop an advanced knowledge of topics in biomaterials and tissue engineering alongside an awareness of the context in which healthcare engineering operates, in terms of safety, environmental, social and economic aspects. You will also gain a wide range of intellectual, practical and transferable skills necessary for a career in this field.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of eight core modules (120 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits).

Core modules

  • Biomaterials
  • Tissue Engineering
  • Biofluids and Medical Devices
  • Biomechanics and Biostructures
  • Applications of Biomedical Engineering
  • Bioengineering
  • Medical Imaging (ionising and non-ionising)
  • Evaluation and Planning of Business Opportunities

Optional modules

There are no optional modules for this programme.

Dissertation/report

Culminating in a substantial dissertation and oral presentation, the research project focuses your research interests and develops high-level presentation, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The project can be based in any relevant UCL department.

Teaching and learning

This dynamic programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials, individual and group projects, and practical laboratory work. Assessment is through written, oral and viva voce examinations, the dissertation and coursework (including the evaluation of laboratory reports, technical and project reports, problem-solving exercises, assessment of computational and modelling skills, and oral presentations).

Please note that the list of modules given here is indicative. This information is published a long time in advance of enrolment and module content and availability is subject to change.

Funding

Careers

There are many career opportunities and the programme is suitable for students wishing to become academics, researchers or professionals and for those pursuing senior management careers, in manufacturing or healthcare engineering

Employability

Delivered by leading researchers from across UCL, as well as industrial experts, you will have plenty of opportunities to network and keep abreast of emerging ideas in biomaterials and tissue engineering. Collaborating with companies and bodies such as the NHS, JRI Orthopaedics and Orthopaedics Research (UK) is key to our success and you will be encouraged to develop networks through the programme itself and through the department’s careers programme which includes employer-led events and individual coaching. We equip our graduates with the skills and confidence needed to play a creative and leading role in the professional and research community.

Why study this degree at UCL?

There are internationally renowned research groups in biomaterials and bioengineering in UCL Engineering and you will have access to a state-of-the-art research portfolio.

In recent years, UCL Mechanical Engineering has seen unprecedented activity in refurbishing and re-equipping our laboratories. For example, six new biomaterials and bioengineering laboratories have been set up with funding from the Royal Society and Wolfson Foundation. A new biomaterials processing and forming laboratory is also available in the Materials Hub in the Engineering Building.

The programme is also delivered by leading researchers across UCL's Division of Medicine, Eastman Dental Institute, the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and visiting experts from other UK organisations.
