University of Leeds
The programme integrates biological sciences with biochemical engineering focusing on the applications of biotechnology in medicine and agriculture; the course begins with the technology underpinning the manufacture of pharmaceutical proteins, the structure of the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector and the way drugs interact with the body; biosensors and molecular diagnostics also form a core part of the programme; students then study 2 from the following 3 topic areas: tissue engineering with a focus on the 'functional' engineering of connective tissues, cardiac valves and epithelia; bionanotechnology including nanoscale manipulation of bio-molecules, single molecule imaging and fabrication of sensor devices and motors; plant biotechnology including the engineering of plants for the production of novel products, and development of stress tolerant crop varieties.
A 2.1 honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, but relevant experience may be taken into account. Chemistry to at least A-level standard or equivalent is also required. If English is not your first language, you must have evidence of an English qualification or other proficiency in English, equivalent to GCSE grade C or above.
Core modules: research planning and scientific communication; advanced biomolecular technologies; protein engineering laboratory project; practical bioinformatics; research project proposal and research project; drugs, processes, products and people; molecular diagnostics, drug delivery and therapies. optional modules (choose 1 or 2): human toxicology; tissue engineering; plant biotechnology.
