Course Description

Biological Systems Engineering is a new discipline which applies systems-oriented engineering analysis and design approaches to the study of molecular and cellular biology. This interdisciplinary programme is based in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and also incorporates modules from the College of Life and Environmental Sciences. Graduates from the physical sciences will gain a solid grounding in modern biology, including the latest high-throughput measurement techniques, together with advanced training in the computational and analytical techniques that are increasingly required to understand and design biological systems. You will gain a fundamental understanding of how biological systems operate as the programme seeks to develop effective technologies for application across a wide spectrum of societal needs. These include diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease design of novel materials, devices and energy sources and enhancing environmental health and food security. As one of the five key themes which feature as part of the University's ?80 million science strategy, systems biology research at Exeter combines the expertise of academics within the School of Biosciences and the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, to understand biological processes across scales, from sub-cellular phenomena up to the ecological level. As an MSc student on the programme, you will benefit from the teaching and research expertise available across this breadth of academic knowledge. The interdisciplinary programme will develop your computational skills and experimental knowledge through a combination of taught modules and project work. You will receive the training necessary to quantitatively model and design biological systems, both natural and synthetic. For the latest information please see our website.
