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.
Our MRes will prepare you for a research career in neurotechnology and give you the knowledge and the skills to make your mark in this exciting field. The programme aims to:
- Produce postgraduates equipped to pursue careers at the interface of neuroscience and engineering, in academia, industry, the public sector and non-governmental organisations
- Develop research and analytical skills related to neurotechnology
- Develop oral and written scientific presentation skills
- Create researchers for whom multidisciplinary thinking is the norm
- Provide an experience which is intellectually stimulating, enjoyable, and meets students’ needs
- Provide a solid foundation for those intending to go on to study for a PhD
Imperial College London works closely with employers and industry, including Industrial Advisory Panels to design Master’s courses which provide graduates with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills and to encourage students to take internships and placements. All Master’s courses are designed with employer needs in mind. Most Master’s courses offer an opportunity to carry out research projects in industry.
