Entrepreneurship and enterprise go hand in hand with the development of Medical Technologies. At the UCL IBME we believe it is essential that modern graduates develop both traditional rigourous research skills and enterprise skills, giving them the tools to succeed in a vibrant and growing industry sector.
The Enterprise Academy is the teaching and training arm of the IBME. Postgraduate students are taught an appreciation of the value and place of enterprise and entrepreneurship alongside academic and clinical research and development rigour and excellence.
Enterprise Academy students are motivated individuals with a drive to see their research make an impact. They are keen researchers with strong entrepreneurial aspirations. Our research areas are highly interdisciplinary and cover the full range of non-pharmaceutical medical devices for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment.
The Enterprise Academy offers an MRes as the first year of a four year PhD programme or a Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Technology Entrepreneurship. Both programmes cover a mix of research relevant technical modules and entrepreneurship and enterprise teaching. Our integrated enterprise and postgraduate research training is a new concept and will create graduates with knowledge and skills relevant to the research and business environment they aim to become a part of.
