About Biological and Bioprocess Engineering at University of Sheffield

The emerging multi-discipline of bioscience is central to providing affordable and sustainable sources of energy, food and medicine. This course provides you with the essential skills for a career in bioindustry or for further advanced research. 

You'll learn from world-class researchers, including staff from Biomedical Science and Materials Science and Engineering. Our graduates work in biotechnology, biopharmaceutical and bioprocess organisations.

Bioscience-based industries represent a new frontier for chemical engineering, where diverse skill sets are in increasing demand. This emerging multidisciplinary field will be central to addressing the grand challenges facing today's society in areas such as medicine, food and energy.

This course will train you to operate effectively at the core of Biological Engineering and Bioprocessing, enabling you to contribute to the development of next generation biomanufacturing technologies and processes.

The course is suitable for both bioscience and chemical engineering graduates. It enables science and engineering graduates to broaden their skill sets with complementary skills and build multidisciplinarity required in the industrial biotechnology sector of today and tomorrow.

Throughout your study here, you'll be involved with the Chemical Engineering at the Life Science Interface (ChELSI) Institute and the Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre. These are centres with excellent capabilities, staffed by experts in bio-systems engineering and bioprocessing. You'll have access to the best minds with the best facilities in the UK.


We are currently working towards re-accreditation of Biological and Bioprocess Engineering by the Institution of Chemical Engineers for 2023-24 entry
