MA Biodesign explores the intersection of design and biological sciences as a catalyst for sustainable innovation.

This research-led two year Masters degree integrates biomimicry and principles of biology into design practice, to grow a new breed of designers that can lead the way developing better sustainable futures. Our biodesigners will work in the context of the emerging bio-circular economy to articulate alternative and innovative new design propositions that can redefine what and how we design and make in the future.

The course will introduce designers from multidisciplinary backgrounds to biomimicry principles, biofabrication techniques, biological systems, and to synthetic biology protocols that can be applied to designing new sustainable materials, products, services or systems.
