Biotechnology and Food Technology is the application of engineering practices and principles to analyse and design new processes, tools and techniques, in order to bridge gaps across biological and healthcare challenges. It applies fundamental engineering principles to the innovation and design of new products and processes, and plays an integral role in global issues where the challenge or solution is biological in origin.
Our Bioengineering degree draws from our expertise across several academic departments and will give you a thorough grounding in engineering systems and applications relevant to bioengineering. You will also gain a sound understanding of human anatomy, physiology and biological functions and the ability to apply your knowledge and skills to bioengineering problems.
The field is rapidly developing, and bioengineers work in a wide variety of sectors globally, developing products and creating technology to help people achieve a better quality of life and break barriers in medical and sporting achievements. Examples include prosthetics and biomaterial implants, software engineering for advanced and 3D medical imaging, image-guided and robot assisted surgery, regenerative medicine against incurable diseases, tissue engineering such as bioengineered skin for wounds, 3D bioprinting, medical device development and new assistive technologies (wearable technology, mobile and e-health).
At Lasustech, our course will take you from the fundamental science and engineering to the cutting-edge of the subject. During your time with us, you will have access to our state-of-the-art experimental labs to complement your lectures. In year three, students will complete a research project on a specific topic of interest supervised by a member of academic staff.
