I'm about to enter my final year of a BSc Biochemistry degree in the UK. I would really like to go on to become a biochemical engineer but i'm not sure exactly what further study (if any) or graduate program that I would need to complete in order to do so.

I would also be more than happy to go abroad (Iv been learning Japanese for about a year and know my way around Tokyo). #graduate #biochemistry #bioengineering #graduate-recruitment #working-abroad

Dear Sean,


Biochemical engineering is about applying principles of chemical engineering such as mass transfer, heat transfer, process design, reactor design, fluid properties , impeller design in biotechnology. The entry requirements for MSc Biochemical engineering at University College London are as follows:


Normal entry requirements are at least a second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or the equivalent from an approved overseas institution. As with any engineering discipline numeracy skills are important for the quantitative description of biological and physical phenomena. Evidence of numerical ability is requested as either an A level in Mathematics (or in exceptional cases, in Physics) or some mathematics studied at university. The department provides mathematics tutoring for Master's students throughout the year adjusted to a candidate's ability.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
