MEngSc in Biopharmaceutical Engineering
The Master of Engineering Science (M.Eng.Sc.) in Biopharmaceutical Engineering is offered by the UCD School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. This course provides an understanding of the principal scientific and engineering challenges involved in the design, operation and management of biopharmaceutical production facilities.
Who is the Master’s in Biopharmaceutical Engineering for?
How will I benefit?
The Programme's teaching methods are highly interactive and varied. Students participate in lectures, workshops, tutorials and practical exercises. The course content addresses the principal scientific and engineering challenges involved in the design, operation and management of biopharmaceutical production facilities. Case-studies of US and UK biotech firms, described by senior company executives, are used to illustrate the possibilities and limitations of commercial exploitation of scientific discoveries.
The programme consists of 12 modules with core modules in Biopharmaceutical Engineering, option engineering modules for Science graduates and option biology modules for Engineering graduates and a research project. Overall, 90 ‘credits’ must be achieved to complete the programme: each of the 12 modules account for 5 ‘credits’ each, and the project accounts for 30 ‘credits’.
For further information on course content / modules see: www.ucd.ie/programmes/t015
It is anticipated that the graduates from this programme will continue to play an important role in the development, design and operation of biopharmaceutical processes throughout the industry in the coming years.
If English is not your native language (unless you have done your primary degree through English), an English language qualification is required, e.g. IELTS International English Language Testing System (IELTS). An average score of 6.5 over all components and a minimum of 6.0 in each band on the Academic Version is required. For more information please click here.
