Biomedical Engineering (L-8)

The Biomedical Engineer Degree Courseing (class L 8) it is offered entirely in lingua ingForest and was designed to train a professional who is able to fit into highly differentiated and rapidly evolving production realities, such as those in the biomedical sector. The professional profile that the degree course intends to train is that of a professional able to operate in the public and private sectors to cover roles at the level of junior designer and expert user of biomedical technologies. The educational path also allows students to continue their studies with access to Master's Degrees or University Masters in order to deepen their skills through highly qualified courses in specific fields.

The Degree Course uses the methodologies and technologies ofingengineering to describe, understand and solve problems of medical-biological interest through a close interdisciplinary collaboration between the Departmental Faculties of Ingengineering and Medicine and Surgery of the University. The interaction with the environment, theingengineering of new materials, prostheses and artificial organs, biomedical equipment and instrumentation, image and biomedical signal processing, ICT applications, represent an essential contribution to progress by stimulating important investments and creating job opportunities. The initial part of the training course (st and nd year) is strongly oriented towards basic preparation, in which the student acquires the essential elements of the scientific disciplines which constitute the indispensable foundations of graduate studies. Ingengineering. In the first year, the basics of mathematics, physics and chemistry are accompanied by the teaching of Physiology and anatomy (provided by teachers of the Departmental Faculty of Medicine and Surgery) which constitutes the foundation for the specific contents of the subsequent teachings of ingbiomedical engineering. In the final part of the course (III year), students are provided with updated tools and methods to solve analysis/design problems relevant to theIngBiomedical engineering. The methodological rigor of the basic teaching approach is aimed at developing the student's aptitude for logical-scientific reasoning.

Among the didactic activities, as for all the Degree and Master's Degree Courses of the University, there are teachings that aim to provide the conceptual tools, borrowed from ethical, deontological, epistemological and historical-philosophical principles and methods, which contribute to the formation of a critical spirit of the student. 

The presence of teaching laboratories and research laboratories allows the student to carry out experimental training activities that integrate the theoretical knowledge acquired through institutional teachings.

IngJunior Biomedical engineer

This is a highly demanding course which will open many career opportunities across numerous medical fields.

At the end of the Biomedical Engineer degree courseing, the graduate will be able to work in companies designing and producing biomedical devices and hospital information systems with project management functions, design with standardized methodologiesingos. organ oilsingoil components of machines, plants and systems, production management, operation of machines and plants, supervision of production activities, ensuring compliance with quality standards, and collaboration in the activities carried out by the ingmasterful engineers. The graduate in Biomedical Engineering will also be able to operate, with a junior profile, in the commercial sector both in the phase of defining the specifications of electro-medical devices and in the customer assistance, training and/or support phase. You will also be able to collaborate with professionals in the healthcare sector to carry out tasks relating to the management, testing and maintenance of electro-medical devices, the management of technical services and ICT services within hospitals and healthcare facilities. He/she will also be able to deal with regulatory and regulatory aspects of biomedical technologies and equipment.

The graduate in Biomedical EngineeringBy acquiring further skills through the continuation of their studies, they will be able to reach greater levels of responsibility.

Skills associated with the function:

To carry out the functions described above, specific skills in the technical-scientific fields are required ingengineering and specific transversal skills, which the student will acquire during the course of study. The course is delivered entirely in lingua inglese will allow the graduate to carry out his profession also internationally.

At the end of the training course, the student must be able to:

  • apply the methodologies and technologies ofingengineering to medical-biological problems;
  • apply the fundamentals of organicingengineering in the electronics, IT and automation sectors;
  • analytically describe, simulate, analyze and solve problems of medical-biological interest;
  • formalize a problem in terms of specifications, resources and constraints;
  • propose modifications to the components of a biomedical system in order to improve its performance and functionality;
  • evaluate the performance of biomedical devices and systems
  • manage biomedical data acquisition and processing systems
  • evaluate the costs/benefits associated with the use of a specific biomedical technology, in compliance with current legislation.

Whether he continues with continuous studies or enters the world of work, the Biomedical Engineer graduateing must be able to work in a multidisciplinary team and communicate and relate to colleagues and other professionals effectively, even in lingua ingreading.

The course prepares you for the profession Ingjunior biomedical engineer. Biomedical Engineer graduatesing they can operate in companies that operate in the production of medical devices, equipment and systems, biomaterials, devices for in vitro medical diagnostics and active implantable medical devices.

Biomedical Engineer graduatesing they will also be able to operate in healthcare facilities and/or in companies that provide global services in the testing of electro-medical devices and in the management of maintenance (preventive and corrective) of the aforementioned equipment, and in the commercial sector of electro-medical device companies. They may also be placed within hospitals and healthcare facilities with collaborative tasks with healthcare professionals.
