This new cross-faculty degree aims to give students a strong foundation in the human body and disease along with an understanding of design and engineering principles. The purpose of this is to combine innovation and technology with patient care. Students following the MSci programme will be able to carry out an additional research project, and also have the flexibility of selecting a theme for their optional modules in year four.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
This degree is split equally between engineering and medical science and is composed of eight compulsory modules in year one and eight in year two.
In year three, students will have the opportunity to personalise their programme as four modules are compulsory and four are optional. In the final year all modules are optional.
Optional modules will be chosen from a range available throughout UCL and students will be encouraged to design their degree along an engineering, medical sciences or business/innovation theme.
MSci students will be able to carry out a bioengineering-system research project in their third year as well as a research project in their final year.
Physics or Mathematics, and Chemistry or Biology, plus one other subject, are required.
English Language and Mathematics at grade B. For UK-based students, a grade C or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. UCL provides opportunities to meet the foreign language requirement following enrolment, further details at: www.ucl.ac.uk/ug-reqs
