Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering

Course summary

Build your understanding of materials science and specialise in biomaterials and tissue engineering on this professionally accredited Master’s degree. Technological advances in materials science and engineering (MSE) are transforming our lives in a range of areas, from targeted drug delivery and disease detection, to tissue engineered scaffolds. During your studies, you'll analyse how materials innovations solve real problems in fields such as healthcare and medical devices. You’ll also assess how technological advances are creating new opportunities in biomedical engineering, 3D printing, robotics and quantum computing. This course will see you engage in the scientific and engineering aspects of the discipline, and learn about the processing, structure, and performance of materials. As it progresses, you'll design your own experiments to test a hypothesis and investigate materials using characterisation techniques such as electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The third year will see you start to specialise in biomaterials. This includes the flexibility to choose modules that fit with your career interests. Your fourth year sees your studies reach Master's level, where you’ll advance your understanding of tissue engineering and apply your skills to an extensive research project. Professional accreditation

  • Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3)
With a professionally accredited degree, you’ll be able to demonstrate to employers that you have achieved an industry-recognised standard of competency. Professional accreditation also provides international recognition of your qualifications, which you can use to launch a career abroad. With this integrated Master’s degree, you’ll fully meet the educational requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Becoming a Chartered Engineer can further enhance your career prospects and earning potential. It demonstrates your competencies and commitment to lifelong learning – providing you with recognition in your field and greater influence and opportunities. In addition to your degree, you’ll receive the Associateship of the Royal School of Mines (ARSM) upon completion of this course. This associateship is awarded by one of our historic constituent Colleges.

Additional entry requirements

Interview

If your UCAS application indicates that you are likely to satisfy our requirements, you will be invited to an applicant day. Applicant days are typically held on Wednesdays between November and March and run from 10.30 to 15.30. You will be expected to attend the whole day. During an applicant day, you will hear from our Director of Undergraduate Studies and then our Admission Tutor. Activities include: A 30 minute one-to-one interview with one of our lecturers. We aim for the interview to be more of a conversation. The main purpose of the interview is for us to see whether you are suitable for the course, as much as for you to decide if Imperial is the place for you. A 45 minute group task. The task will be an engineering-based problem-solving challenge to see your team working skills, as we deem this to be an important part of life at Imperial. A 60 minute Q&A with current student ambassadors where you will be able to ask them questions about the course and studying in London. We hope our applicant days will be held in-person at our South Kensington campus, however this will be subject to restrictions at the time. We will notify applicants who are invited about the arrangements. For those unable to travel, the applicant days will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams.
