Course content

The one-year MRes Medical Device Design and Entrepreneurship is a unique programme which combines development of medical devices and biomedical engineering knowledge, alongside entrepreneurship skills.

The focus is on the intricate and unique field of medical device development and the key entrepreneurship and management skills required to get the device to market, from concept to business planning and market emergence.

In addition to specific training in medical device entrepreneurship, you will also develop research and analytical skills related to bioengineering. This provides a solid foundation for those intending to go into industry or on to study for a PhD.

This is a very hands-on course, with much of the training and assessment based around a year-long project aimed at developing an engineering developmental and start-up business plan around a medical device concept.

The programme is supplemented by a small amount of formal teaching, and a requirement to attend at least one seminar per week throughout the first two terms in the Department of Bioengineering.
