Major in biomedical engineering

map2m  2018-2019  Louvain-la-Neuve

As with most of the civil engineering programmes, the goal of this major is to train engineers who are capable of meeting the future technological challenges in the scientific and technical areas of biomedical engineering. This major provides students with basic knowledge of several areas of biomedical engineering such as bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, medical imaging, mathematical modelling, artificial organs and rehabilitation, and biomechanics. Through the collaboration between the Louvain School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, students benefit from an interdisciplinary programme where the art of engineering is applied to the complex and varied biomedical field.
