Molecular Bioengineering

**As well as your main Imperial degree (MEng), you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute (ACGI) on completion of this course.** The focus of this degree course is developing a ‘bottom up’ understanding of the links between molecules, cells, tissues, organs and limbs generating function, health and disease within a bioengineering context. Alongside a breadth of core engineering and biomedical engineering knowledge, you will gain a specialist understanding of biochemical, physiological and biological processes. This knowledge is coupled with excellent advanced practical laboratory skills in chemical biology, molecular biology, synthetic biology, analytical sciences, microfluidics and device engineering. The skills you gain will ensure you are well placed to contribute to addressing the global challenges of today: the health and wellbeing agenda; personalised medicine; and new biomedical technology industries. You follow a pathway of core modules in years one and two, before studying specialised molecular bioengineering modules in the third and fourth year: - mathematics - thermodynamics - medical science - analytical science - programming - biomolecular engineering You will also gain extensive practical skills in the first two years, with over 60 per cent of first and second year modules including lab-based learning and teaching activities. In your third year you can choose more advanced optional modules in molecular bioengineering alongside core modules and a group project. Your study reaches Master's level in the fourth year, including a substantial research project that gives you the chance to undertake research and write a thesis. It is extended to six months full-time in the final year (as opposed to being interspersed with taught modules for a shorter period) and runs until approximately mid-June. The completed thesis will be the result of over significant, full-time individual study over six months, and make up over half of the assessed work in the fourth year.
