What’s it like to study a PhD in Bioengineering?
As a PhD student in Bioengineering, you’ll divide most of your time between lab-based research, writing your thesis and attending supervisory meetings. If your research is focused on the development of biomedical technology, you may collaborate with local hospitals whose patients are participants in your research.
Possible research areas include:
- Biological imaging
- Bioinspired design and biomimetics
- Cell and tissue engineering
- Computational biology
- Genome and protein engineering
You may also be required to complete departmental training on topics such as research methodologies and presentation skills. You will likely have the opportunity to connect with the wider academic community through attending conferences, publishing papers and undergraduate teaching.
