This course provides a grounding in neurotechnology research, and enables you to develop the technical skills required to carry out successful PhD work.

Neurotechnology is the use of insights and tools from mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering to investigate neural function and treat dysfunction. Brain-related illnesses affect more than two billion people worldwide, and the numbers are growing. Reducing this burden is a major challenge for society.

The MRes Neurotechnology is a one year full-time programme which will provide you with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills in this exciting area. Our MRes will prepare you for an innovative research career at the interface between neuroscience and engineering, in academia, industry, or elsewhere.

The programme comprises lectures, practical work and workshops in the first term, followed by full-time work on a research project. In addition, you will attend regular symposia and a neurotechnology journal club throughout the year. Your research project will be supervised by a multidisciplinary team of at least two Imperial College London supervisors who will bring technical and neuroscience expertise to the project. 

The MRes Neurotechnology also forms the first year of the four-year CDT Neurotechnology programme. Students on the one-year course benefit from interaction with CDT cohorts throughout the programme.


The MRes Neurotechnology provides unique training at the interface between neuroscience and engineering, enhancing your skills in research, analysis and scientific presentation and developing your ability to work in a multidisciplinary team.

Our programme provides a solid foundation in research for those continuing with a neurotechnology career, whether within the CDT Neurotechnology programme or a separate PhD, or working in industry.
