About this program

MSc in Biomedical Engineering

The program provides the student with an Engineering education applied to the medical and biological environment, through deep basic and specialised training in biomedical topics. The educational program is intended to train students to design equipment, devices, materials, procedures and to develop and manage biomedical technologies in Companies and Health Structures. The peculiar multidisciplinary structure of the program allows developing a strong knowledge in electronics, informatics, mechanical, chemical, material engineering and it promotes the integration of technical studies with life science disciplines (biology, physiology and medicine).

The program has 5 suggested tracks (besides the possibility to develop a personal study plan):

  1. Biomechanics and Biomaterials
  2. Clinical Engineering
  3. Cells, Tissue and Biotechnology
  4. Information Bioengineering
  5. Technologies for Electronics
