Course summary

This course combines the development of medical devices and biomedical engineering knowledge alongside entrepreneurship skills. The focus is on the intricate and unique field of medical device development and the key entrepreneurship and management skills required to get the device to market, from concept to business planning and market emergence. In addition to specific training in medical device entrepreneurship, you will develop research and analytical skills related to bioengineering. This provides a solid foundation for those intending to go into industry or to continue on to undertake a PhD.

This is a hands-on course, with much of the training and assessment based around a year-long project aimed at developing an engineering developmental and start-up business plan around a medical device concept. The programme is supplemented by a small amount of formal teaching. A variety of seminars and workshops are also provided to deepen and broaden your skill base.

The first of its kind in the UK, this course aims to ensure the development of advanced medical devices. Our course prepares you for an innovative research career in bioengineering. The practical nature of the course, along with the key training in business skills, sees you well-placed to seek a career in this area. With the research project element of this course accounting for three-quarters of the assessment, you will be equally well-prepared to pursue further study and research at PhD-level.
