Course content

Do you want to change the world? Our innovation programmes will set you on your way.

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players, with a breadth of skills enabling them to work across specialisms and cultures. They will be designers and entrepreneurs, and have a passion for style, efficiency and sustainability. Bristol’s innovation programmes are for people who want to pursue their subject specialism in a way that enables them to apply it: to become innovators who can change the world.

Our aim is to educate a new generation to create and grow innovative companies and social enterprises. The MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme aims to develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful innovation and entrepreneurship, through a practice-orientated approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures. It teaches students how to apply their subject-specific knowledge to real-world challenges through a range of transdisciplinary units focusing on innovation-led entrepreneurial skills, design and systems thinking, making and testing.

Students will be equipped to apply their knowledge and skills to address key issues such as health, education and the environment. Their final project will be their launchpad, when they will create an enterprise, put together a detailed plan and work out how take it forward and raise investment.
