The core science, engineering, business and leadership skills that you acquire on the programme will provide you with excellent and diverse career prospects. In addition to your core subject knowledge, the programme will provide you with skills such as innovative thinking, team working and computing.
The excitement of advances towards new medicines and greener sustainable processes is creating an ever-growing need for biochemical engineering graduates to work in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, biofuels, chemical, environment and food industries.
You may be based in a university, or work in company research and development activity involved in the design of facilities and issues of creating safe materials. The programme teaches skills such as systematic thinking and precise calculation, which leads some graduates to enter the financial sector and particularly those companies which invest in healthcare.
The first cohort of students admitted to the Bioprocessing of New Medicines (Business and Management) BSc programme are due to graduate after 2015. Therefore, no information about career destinations for students on this programme is currently available.
