Course content

Tissue engineering is an ever-emerging interdisciplinary field of biomedical research, which combines life, engineering and materials sciences, to progress the maintenance, repair and replacement of diseased and damaged tissues. The Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering & Repair (CITER) MSc in Tissue Engineering aims to provide graduates from life sciences and clinical backgrounds with an advanced knowledge, understanding and skills in the science and practice of tissue engineering; from theoretical science, through to research translation and clinical application. The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering. The MSc offers a balanced combination of theory and practice; and can serve either as preparation for a PhD or as a self-contained advanced qualification in its own right. The MSc in Tissue Engineering is both lecture- and laboratory-based, and includes a number of opportunities to visit relevant clinical settings and local industrial partners. Graduates from this Programme will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and a variety of skills, making them highly attractive both to potential employers and research establishments.
