Features and aims of the course

This course is part of the Department of Information Engineering, and aims to provide the student with a solid interdisciplinary education based on the integration of technical-biological knowledge and skills. Interdisciplinarity is required for the biomedical engineer to be able to find technological solutions, typical of engineering, to problems of medical/biological nature. The course focuses mainly, but not exclusively, on the study of motor, cardiac, metabolic and respiratory physiological systems. The student acquires knowledge through frontal lectures and guided exercises, accompanied also by laboratory activities.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The first part of the course is focused on fundamental subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, and Chemistry. The second part of the course is focused on more specific subjects such as:

  • Bioengineering
  • Automatics
  • Telecommunications
  • Electronics

Moreover, the student can choose from related subjects such as Materials, Measures, Medicine, and Biology.

YOUR FUTURE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

The Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering is preparatory to the Master’s degree, and the majority of students continue their studies. However, the main occupational fields available to those who interrupt their studies are:

  • biomedical engineering services (or clinical engineering/biomedical technologies) in public or private health facilities;
  • medical IT software house;
  • industrial enterprise for the production and marketing of biomedical equipment;
  • pharmaceutical industry.

STRENGTHS OF THE COURSE

Bioengineering puts individuals are at the centre of its interests.  Therefore, the relationship between professors and students, even if quite numerous, is considered of high importance. Tutors give their absolute availability to students.

In this young and dynamic context, the maximum effort is made to raise awareness and develop passion among students for the social problems to which bioengineering provides technical solutions. The solid multidisciplinary education in basic bioengineering subjects will allow students to specialize, throughout the Master’s degree, in any field of bioengineering.
