The following list below is an overview of all available MRes Bioengineering research projects for the 2022-23 academic year. Each project is hyperlinked which will download a PDF file of the project description.

Due to the amount of projects supervised from non-Bioengineering departments, they have have categorised into two tabs.

Alternatively, you may refer back to the home page to access the same projects below but categorised by their themes accordingly that may suit your area of interest.
