MEng’s “Science track” and “Engineering track” core courses for students coming to the program with an engineering or life science degree.
Core courses within the MEng program contain workshops and laboratory courses designed to develop technical knowledge and skills in biopharmaceutical process engineering. The curriculum also includes management and regulatory courses so that graduates will have sufficient knowledge in these areas to operate as professionals in the widest variety of corporate settings, and be productive member of teams under all circumstances.
In addition to core coursework, students are assigned to either the engineering or science track, depending on their undergraduate training. Each track contains prerequisite courses that are intended to provide skills in areas that have not been covered by the students in their undergraduate degree courses.
Most semester courses are 1.5 credits. A typical 1.5 credit course consists of approximately 24 contact hours plus 60-70 hours for tutorials, small team assignments, course work, seminars, tests, revisions, and private study. The schematic below shows the breakdown of the major components within the program.
