Course summary

This course equips you with skills to address tomorrow’s challenges in cancer using state-of-the-art technologies and physical sciences/mathematical approaches. The course involves lectures and practical work in the first term, followed by full-time work on a research project. A variety of seminars and workshops are also provided to deepen and broaden your skill base.

The course embodies a multi-disciplinary approach that:

  • Provides a critical understanding of the fundamentals of cancer progression and current challenges in cancer management
  • Enables students to apply their knowledge of engineering, physics and mathematics to solving challenges in cancer through a nine-month cross-disciplinary research project
  • Develops research and analytical skills related to bioengineering in cancer and to effectively communicate results through oral and written scientific formats
  • Trains students to effectively communicate with oncologists, cancer biologists, clinicians and researchers
  • Prepare students for demanding careers or PhD programmes at the interface of cancer and bioengineering

The course builds on the Department of Bioengineering’s diverse strengths in this area in addition to our collaborations with our world-leading partner, the Institute of Cancer Research.

Careers

The first of its kind in the UK, this MRes will prepare you for on-demand research careers within the growing field of engineering in cancer. Through enhancing skills in research, analysis and scientific presentation as well as the ability to work in a team, students will be well-equipped for multi-disciplinary PhD programmes or jobs in drug discovery, biotechnology and medical devices, among others. Moreover, the Department of Bioengineering, where this programme is based, works closely with industry to ensure that our graduates gain the technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills that are so valued in the workplace.
