Education and training
The UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering provides a continuum of education and training from introductory courses for A-level students, through professionally accredited undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes as well as a series of modules for those already working in the international bioindustry right up to Senior Executive levels. It is the leading UK provider of graduates and postgraduates skilled at working at the biology-engineering interface. All of the teaching space in the Department has been refurbished in recent years and there is an ongoing programme of investment. The strong link between research and teaching ensures students have access to the best equipment for practical training and that lectures are illustrated with examples of the latest developments.
The range of education and training activities available is summarised below:
- Headstart science and engineering experience course for school students interested in learning about the role of bioprocessing in delivering the next generation of medicines.
- From 2012 we will be running a Smallpeice Trust course as part of our widening participation agenda in higher education.
- Undergraduate degree programmes (BSc, BEng, MEng) for those wishing to apply their science skills to practical problems and enter a range of careers.
- Postgraduate taught programmes (MSc) for those from bioscience or chemcial engineering backgrounds who want to establish biology-engineering interface skills ahead of a career in the international bioindustry.
- Postgraduate research programmes (PhD, EngD) for those wishing to pursue cutting edge research related to the bioprocessing of new medicines or the generation of cells for use in Human cell therapries.
- MBI® Training modules for those already working in the international bioindustry wishing to keep up to date with the latest developments and learn new skills.
- Vision courses and briefings for senior staff in the life science sector who would benefit from access to mentoring and specialist insights.
