Program Overview

The MRes in Medical Device Design and Entrepreneurship will prepare you for an innovative research career in Bioengineering and aims to:

produce postgraduates with a sound understanding and knowledge of the intricate and unique field of medical device development, from concept to business planning and market emergence

provide management and communication skills training, including problem definition, project design, decision processes, teamwork, written and oral reports, proposals and publications

develop research and analytical skills related to bioengineering using a multidisciplinary approach develop oral and written scientific and business presentation skills

provide a solid foundation for those intending to go into industry or on to study for a PhD

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.

The MRes in Medical Device Design and Entrepreneurship (MDDE) will prepare you for an innovative research career in Bioengineering. The programmes capitalise on the strength of the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial alongside access to a number of local hospitals through the Imperial NHS Trust, London's reputation as a financial hub and the growing medical device and broader health innovation sector. 

This was the first medical device entrepreneurship programme in the UK and was developed from the need for more medical device activity. There is also a need to enhance the opportunities for technologies developed as a result of research to emerge successfully into a patient application.

The programme takes a project-based approach in a specific area of bioengineering research with the bulk of the training taking 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. They will also attend lectures from the MSc Biomedical Engineering programme.

Imperial College London works closely with employers and industry, including Industrial Advisory Panels to design Master’s courses, providing graduates with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills and students with opportunities to undertake internships and placements.

All Master's courses are designed with employer needs in mind with some being accredited by Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies. Most Master’s courses offer an opportunity to carry out research projects in the industry.
