Bachelor's Degree in Bioengineering
According to the Spanish National Institute of Statistics, life expectancy increased by 1.1 years between 2007 and 2013. Sociodemographic change and long life expectancy in Europe have meant that healthcare is focusing on new horizons. The electrical and communications industry have facilitated the creation of batteries, microcomputers, new polymers and plastics, which mean that prosthetics and orthoprosthetics have become lighter, more resistant and look more real. In the area of robotics and electronics, it has been possible to develop improved prosthetics through control and adaptation systems until the point where they can create prosthetics controlled through muscular stimulation.
This degree will allow you to specialize as an engineer in the field of dental prosthetics and/or orthoprosthetics. Depending on the specialization you choose, from second year onwards you will use knowledge of dentistry or medicine and physiotherapy in combination with engineering-specific technical and scientific skills, in order to fit dental prosthetics or orthotics in patients and offer them full or almost full integration into society or guarantee them a better physical or aesthetic look.
If you have a desire to help society in the field of health sciences, this could be the profession for you. Becoming an engineer via this degree and learning about the latest technology will ensure you can manage to design and manufacture prosthetics and orthotics (depending on the specialization you choose) for patients who need it. This will allow them to become more integrated into society and ensure they can obtain a physical or aesthetic improvement.
Anyone who fulfils the admission criteria and general prerequisites for access to the degree program is eligible to apply. You must be able to prove that you have a vocational attitude towards science, techniques and healthcare in which the following skills stand out:
