Course summary

Bioengineering has contributed to revolutionary, sometimes life-saving, innovations – from artificial organs and replacement hips and knees, to pacemakers, dialysis machines, ultrasound and other medical imaging techniques. A fascinating, rapidly-evolving discipline, it is leading the development of stem cell therapies, regenerative medicine, and novel biopharmaceuticals, including engineered organisms for agricultural, chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturing. You will conduct in-depth research supervised by leading experts at the forefront of bio and medical engineering and develop strong skills in research design, experimentation and analysis, both wet and dry, to prepare you for research-orientated careers. Why study this course?

  • Leading expertise in molecular engineering, cell and tissue engineering, biomedical engineering, and medical design engineering
  • 80% of our research was classified as world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework, 2021.
  • Top 20 in the UK for Pharmacology and Pharmacy (The Complete University Guide 2022).
  • Outstanding facilities at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a European Centre for Excellence in tissue engineering
  • Flexible programme structure with pathways in Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Engineering (MCT) or Biomedical Engineering (BME)
There is an increasing demand for bioengineers whose knowledge of engineering, maths and the physical sciences serves society's desire to develop new technology, machinery, and the advanced treatment and therapies needed to combat rising health problems. Bioengineering – also referred to as biomedical engineering – applies traditional engineering techniques to primarily solve medical and biological problems, inventing new equipment, materials, methods and processes to safely and accurately diagnose patients, improve medical treatment and its outcomes. It is responsible for innovations ranging from prosthetic limbs and heart valves, to tissue, stem cell research and gene modification. This Master of Research (MRes) is a research-based programme of study, which enables you to develop advanced research skills and conduct in-depth research, under the supervision of one of our many leading experts in bio and medical engineering. From the outset, you will focus your studies by choosing one of two available pathways – Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Engineering (MCT) or Biomedical Engineering (BME). *About Keele
* Keele University was established in 1949 by the former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University. Founded to meet the needs of a changing world, Keele has always had a pioneering vision to be a different kind of university. We excel in both teaching and research, with some of the most satisfied students in England, and research that is changing lives for the better at a regional, national and global level. Our beautiful 600-acre campus is one of the biggest in Britain – but all the most important services and facilities are on your doorstep, with accommodation, teaching spaces, facilities including a medical centre, sports centre and pharmacy, and a range of shops, eateries and entertainment venues – including the Students’ Union – clustered around the centre.
