Our MRes will prepare you for a research career in Bioengineering. The programme aims to:

  • Produce postgraduates equipped to pursue careers at the interface between the physical, biological and medical sciences in academia, industry, the public sector and non-governmental organisations
  • Develop the ability to undertake research in multidisciplinary teams at this interface
  • Develop research and analytical skills related to bioengineering
  • Develop oral and written scientific presentation skills
  • 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.

Study Details:

MRes 12-months full-time

Module Details:

As part of your studies you will undertake a number of modules and workshops to provide you with skills useful for your research project. These modules are largely in Term 1 but may extend into Term 2 (depending on the options chosen).

You will take the following core modules:

  • Computational Methods for Bioengineering
  • Statistics and Data Analysis
  • MRes Journal Club
  • Seminars

Plus two or more optional modules from a selection including:

  • Optical Imaging Techniques
  • Techniques in Molecular Bioengineering
  • Courses from the MSc in Biomedical Engineering

Examples of modules from the MSc course include:

  • Advanced medical imaging
  • Biomechanics
  • Brain machine interface
  • Cellular biomechanics
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Human neuromechanical control and learning
  • Image processing
  • Biomaterials
  • Machine learning and neural computation
  • Orthopaedic biomechanics

Programme Funding

We aim to attract the brightest and best students to Imperial. That’s why we offer a wide range of scholarships for postgraduates to support them through their studies.

Student Destinations

Bioengineering brings a broad range of engineering and scientific skills, including some of the newest areas of science in genomics, imaging, and computing, to meet those challenges.

Our graduates develop excellent skills and knowledge which can be applied to a range of biomedical engineering careers. Additionally these skills are highly transferable to graduate roles across a diverse number of industries and jobs outside of the bioengineering sector


Entry Requirements

The minimum entry criteria for admission is normally at least an upper second class honours degree in a Physical, Engineering, Mathematical, or Life/Biomedical Sciences-based subject from an UK academic institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification.
