M.Res. Medical Device Design and Entrepreneurship
The MRes is 12-months full-time, and involves only a small amount of formal teaching. In addition to a module providing specific training in medical device entrepreneurship, a selection of “short workshop” format modules is provided, primarily in the first term, to address key technical training requirements common to many areas of bioengineering. Students will also follow two elective courses from the MBA and MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management programmes in the Imperial Business School. The bulk of the training will take place in year-long group projects aimed at developing an engineering developmental and startup business plan around a medical device concept. Students are required to attend departmental seminars, as well as a selection of other seminars throughout College, and may also attend lectures from the MSc Biomedical Engineering programme.
