|Degree:||Master of Science (MSc)|
Bioengineering & Biotechnology
A flexible programme that allows you to pursue diverse interests at the interface of modern biology and business
Gain an in-depth understanding of translating laboratory findings from a modern bioscience laboratory to the clinic / commercial utility. Learning is based around practicals, lectures, interactive workshops and an extended, milestoned research project.
The programme content and specification ensures that your exposure to modern biosciences (i.e. drawing from the existing advanced optional modules in Cancer Biology, Infectious Diseases, Biotechnology & Bioengineering and Reproductive Medicine) coupled with your exposure to existing Business Modules (Marketing, Financial & Management Accounting and Strategy) and a new innovation module that focuses on Translating Bioscience to Business.
Kent is moving forward with the Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS), due to take the first cohort of students in September 2020.
KMMS will be a significant addition to the University, with exciting opportunities for education and research in the School of Biosciences.
The University of Kent’s School of Biosciences ranks among the most active in biological sciences in the UK. We have recently extended our facilities and completed a major refurbishment of our research laboratories, which now house over 100 academic, research, technical and support staff, of whom more than 120 are postgraduate students.
Research in the School of Biosciences revolves around understanding systems and processes in the living cell. It has a strong molecular focus with leading-edge activities that are synergistic with one another and complementary to the teaching provision. Our expertise in disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology and biomedical science allows us to exploit technology and develop groundbreaking ideas in the fields of genetics, molecular biology, protein science and biophysics. Fields of enquiry encompass a range of molecular processes from cell division, transcription and translation through to molecular motors, molecular diagnostics and the production of biotherapeutics and bioenergy.
In addition to research degrees, our key research strengths underpin a range of career-focused taught Master’s programmes that address key issues and challenges within the biosciences and pharmaceutical industries and prepare graduates for future employment.
