The MRes in Medical Device Design and Entrepreneurship will prepare you for an innovative research career in Bioengineering and aims to:

  • produce postgraduates with a sound understanding and knowledge of the intricate and unique field of medical device development, from concept to business planning and market emergence
  • provide management and communication skills training, including problem definition, project design, decision processes, teamwork, written and oral reports, proposals and publications
  • develop research and analytical skills related to bioengineering using a multidisciplinary approach develop oral and written scientific and business presentation skills
  • provide a solid foundation for those intending to go into industry or on to study for a PhD

The MRes is 12-months full-time, and involves only a small amount of formal teaching. In addition to a module providing specific training in medical device entrepreneurship, a selection of "short workshop" format modules is provided, primarily in the first term, to address key technical training requirements common to many areas of bioengineering.
