Bioelectronics and Biosensors

This course aims to provide the next generation of researchers and innovators with the skills and knowledge to succeed in this challenging field. Students have access to academics and researchers with suitable knowledge; much of this research is of an interdisciplinary nature and so there is a need for researchers and technologists who are able to bridge the gaps between these different disciplines and communicate across boundaries.
