About

Our MSc Biochemical Engineering programme at University College London focuses on the core biochemical engineering principles that enable the translation of advances in the life sciences into real processes or products. 

Visit the Visit programme website for more information

Overview

In the Biochemical Engineering programme at University College London students will develop advanced engineering skills (such as bioprocess design, bioreactor engineering, downstream processing), state of the art life science techniques (such as molecular biology, vaccine development, microfluidics) and essential business and regulatory knowledge (such as management, quality control, commercialisation). 

Employability

The rapid advancements in biology and the life sciences create a need for highly trained, multidisciplinary graduates possessing technical skills and a fundamental understanding of both the biological and engineering aspects relevant to modern industrial bioprocesses. Consequently, UCL biochemical engineers are in high demand due to their breadth of expertise, numerical ability and problem-solving skills. The first destinations of those who graduate from the Master's programme in biochemical engineering reflect the highly relevant nature of the training delivered.

Approximately three-quarters of our graduates elect either to take up employment in the relevant biotechnology industries or study for a PhD or an EngD, while the remainder follow careers in the management, financial or engineering design sectors.

Accreditation

Our MSc is accredited by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
