Mission and goals
The programme 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 programme 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 programme 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 programme has 4 suggested tracks (besides the possibility to develop a personal study plan): Clinical Engineering; Electronic Technologies; Biomechanics and Biomaterials; Cell, Tissue and Biotechnology Engineering.
Biomedical Engineering graduated can be employed in the field of design, development and commercialization of biomedical devices, as well as in the pharmaceutical sector. Career opportunities can be found in: 1) manufacturing companies which are active on health-care market; 2) public and private hospitals for the management of health technologies; 3) medical equipment and service companies; 4) biomedical laboratories; 5) biomedical research.
