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 5 suggested tracks (besides the possibility to develop a personal study plan): Biomechanics and Biomaterials; Clinical Engineering; Cells, Tissue and Biotechnology; Information Bioengineering, Technologies for Electronics.


Five tracks are available

Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Cell, Tissue and Biotechnology Engineering, Clinical Engineering, Electronic Technologies, Information Bioengineering.

Selection of courses from all tracks

Mathematical and digital methods for engineering, Bioengineering of the motor system, Mechanics of biological structures, Bioengineering of autonomic control and respiratory systems, Biofluid dynamics, Biomechanical design, Biomachines (with laboratory), Biomaterials, Endoprostheses, Biomimetics and tissue Engineering, Biotechnological applications and bioreactors, Life support systems, Laboratory of tissue characterization, Laboratory of biomaterials, Laboratory of instrumental analysis, Laboratory of biofluid dynamics, Laboratory of biomechanical design, Computational biomechanics laboratory.


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.
