This MSc analyses how advances in the life sciences can effectively be translated into real outcomes of benefit to all. Close links with the research activities of the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering ensure that lecture and case study examples are built around the latest biological discoveries and bioprocessing technologies. What and how will I learn? Students develop an advanced knowledge of core biochemical engineering principles and applications, design techniques for the creation of products and process plants to meet a defined need, commercial and economic aspects, health, safety, environmental and other professional issues, management and business practices, and techniques applicable to research and advanced scholarship. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme offers two pathways: Engineering and Science. The programme consists of five core courses (75 credits) three pathway courses (45 credits) and a dissertation or design project (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered. Core Modules Advanced Bioreactor Engineering Integrated Downstream Processing Commercialisation of Bioprocess Research Mammalian Cell Culture and Stem Cell Processing Bioprocess Entrepreneurial Business Plan Dissertationreport All MSc students submit a 10,000 word dissertation in either Bioprocess Design (Science pathway and Engineering pathway) or Bioprocess Research (Science pathway only). Options SELECT EITHER THE SCIENCE OR ENGINEERING PATHWAY: EITHER: Science: Metabolic Processes and Regulation Science: Structural Biology and Functional Protein Engineering Science: Cellular Functioning from Genome to Proteome OR: Engineering: Bioprocess Synthesis and Process Mapping Engineering: Heat and Mass Transfer in Bioprocesses Engineering: Fluid Flow and Mixing in Bioprocesses Further details available on subject website: http:www.ucl.ac.ukbiochemengstudentspgcourses The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and individual and group activities. Invited lectures delivered by industrialists provide a professional and social context. Assessment is through unseen written examinations, coursework, individual and group project reports, individual and group oral presentations, and the research or design project. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Biochemical Engineering Department at UCL is the largest of its kind in the UK. Our graduate programmes are internationally recognised and draw on advances in life sciences and the core discipline of biochemical engineering. We maintain close teaching and research links with other highly-rated UCL departments and with experts from other departments throughout the UK and overseas, and are also involved in exceptionally close collaborations with industry. Studying in London affords an enormous range of academic, cultural and leisure activities. UCL is located in the Bloomsbury area of central London, famous for its intellectual and academic traditions. Your future career The first destinations of those who graduate from the Master's programme in Biochemical Engineering reflect the highly relevant nature of the training delivered. UCL biochemical engineers are in demand, due to their breadth of expertise, numerical ability and problem solving skills. Approximately three-quarters of candidates elect to take up employment in the relevant biotechnology industries while the remainder follow careers in the management, financial or engineering design sectors. Approximately half of those who choose the bioindustry sector will undertake PhD or EngD programmes in biochemical engineering either at UCL or other universities before commencing their industrial careers. Entry Requirements Normal entry requirements are at least a second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or the equivalent from an approved overseas institution. Candidates offering recent industrial experience are also
