Course content

The medical technologies sector is seeing unprecedented growth, with an increasing need for trained professionals with a skill set combining scientific proficiency with entrepreneurial and business flair. This innovative programme, in partnership with the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering, offers a unique graduate pathway into this flourishing sector.

The UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering provides a unique source of coherent entrepreneurship training for medical technology graduate students in the UK, alongside a vibrant multidisciplinary biomedical engineering research community engaged in developing new medical devices to transform medicine.

Our entrepreneurial training is delivered by the UCL School of Management, and is complemented by seminars and networking events bringing together researchers, clinicians and industrialists.

Where students are sponsored by an industrial partner, they will spend time with that partner. Links are also being built with Yale University and students may have the opportunity to spend short periods of time there.
