The aim of the Biomedical Genetics and Tissue Engineering course offered by Brunel University London is to create qualified biomedical engineers who can help in the design, development, operation and research of complex medical devices for the modern biomedical and healthcare industry.

About

The Biomedical Genetics and Tissue Engineering course is offered by Brunel University London.

Gaining a deeper insight into genetics and tissue engineering, you will also cover biomechanics and biomaterials, and will learn about genomic technologies and molecular mechanisms.

You’ll be in demand in the area of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the characterisation of tissue.Teaching is delivered by enthusiastic world-leading biomedical research experts, and enhanced by clinical professionals who are part of our extensive network of industry and hospital collaborative partners. With our strong industry links, some projects are provided by hospital consultants and are based on solving practical biomedical problems and challenges.Researchers at Brunel are working in a range of research areas, including tissue engineering, cell culture, microfluidics, and electrospinning techniques for developing novel materials. Their up-to-date knowledge will feed directly into your learning.

You will have access to fully equipped laboratories, with excellent biomedical engineering research facilities. In the computer lab, you’ll have the opportunity to develop hands-on skills using modern computer software to solve problems relevant to biomedical issues.

Careers and your future

Your biomedical engineering postgraduate degree from Brunel will provide you with the acquired skills that are essential to the modern biomedical and healthcare industry. You’ll also have the expertise required to enter into product innovation, development and research.

Some of our graduates have taken on roles such as R&D engineer, biomedical specialist in intensive care monitoring and ventilation, product safety associate and engineer laboratory technician. Others have used the accumulated knowledge and skills taught in the courses to join other industries, and indeed some have gone on to carry out PhD research.
