What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The objective of the Bachelor Degree Course is to introduce students to:

  • mathematics, chemistry, thermodynamics, mechanics and electromagnetism fundamentals and their engineering applications;
  • the primary properties and characteristics of materials and biomaterials in interactions with biological tissues;
  • biochemistry, biology and medicine fundamentals;
  • designing and producing artificial systems for the functional recovery of tissues and organs to substitute, integrate or rehabilitate;
  • electronics, robotics and medical software development basics;
  • developing and analysing medical-biological signals, images and data.

What do you learn?

You learn to:

  • prepare and characterise biomaterial for applications such as prosthetics, diagnosis and cure, developing existing relationships between working, structure and properties;
  • design and evaluate the use of suitable materials for diagnostic medical devices for the prevention and treatment of diseases and handicaps, substitution or modification of anatomy or a physiological process;
  • design and produce biomechanical (passive prosthetics), electronic (sensors and diagnostics), mechatronic (active prosthetics) and robotic (robotic surgery) devices;
  • develop biosensors, new prosthetics and artificial organs, devices for biomedical use, pharmacological devices and devices for the support and assistance of the disabled;
  • develop technology for diagnostics;
  • analyse electrical and/or magnetic phenomena;
  • elaborate data and images;
  • model physiological systems;
  • design, create and test medical devices and implants designed for diagnosis, treatment and monitoring;
  • develop and manage the production and creation of electromedical biosensors and instruments;
  • develop clinical decision-making and health information system supports;
  • develop medical software.
