The focus of postgraduate research and teaching in the UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering is the study of the whole bioprocess and the interaction between new biological discoveries and the novel engineering required for the formation, recovery, purification and formulation of biomaterials. Targets include ‘small’ and macro-molecules. Both are progressing to greater complexity; for example, metabolically engineered antibiotics and chiral drug intermediates, antibody fragments, plasmid genes and engineered human tissue are the subject of current studies.
The Department offers taught postgraduate qualifications (MSc) alongside a choice of research degree options (PhD and EngD). If you are interested in finding out more then read our brochure Life at the Cutting Edge together with further information on the various programmes below.
