Retour en début de pageStudy objectives

The Master’s degree in biomedical engineering aims to train engineers who will be able to meet future technological  challenges in the scientific and technical fields relating to biomedical engineering, within an ever-changing European and global context.
Upon graduating, students will have acquired the basics of all the main fields of biomedical engineering :  bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, medical imaging, mathematical modelling, artificial organs and rehabilitation, biocomputing and biomechanics. They will have been given advanced training one or two of the proposed options.
Thanks to the important amount of time given over to elective courses, students can choose to become anything between « general practitioner » or « specialist » in any given field.
Thanks also to the collaboration between the Engineering school and the Medical school, students are assured of an interdisciplinary training, where the art of engineering is applied to the complex and varied biomedical field.

Retour en début de pageGeneral presentation of the programme

The Master’s curriculum in biomedical engineering will consist of at least 120 credits covering two years, with a minimum of 60 credits per year, and comprising :
- a core curriculum (30 credits)
- a specialization curriculum (30 credits)
- one or more options chosen amongst the 10 suggested options
- elective courses.
The final thesis is generally written during the last year. However, depending on their specific training objectives, students may choose to take any given course in the first or second year, subject to possible prerequisites. This will be the case in particular for students pursuing part of their education abroad.
If, in the course of his (her) former curriculum, a student has already been credited with a subject included in the compulsory core curriculum, or any training deemed equivalent, this subject will be replaced by elective courses, while conforming to imposed constraints. The student is responsible for checking whether the minimum total number of credits has been reached, as well as those of the specialized field, which will appear on the final diploma.
The student’s curriculum will be submitted for acceptance by the relevant diploma committee.
