Overview

Biomedical engineering uses engineering methods and technologies to understand the issues related to life sciences. Biomedical engineers are able to develop new methodologies and devices to be used in diagnosis and treatment of disease. Therefore, the degree course in Biomedical Engineering aims to provide a solid background on basic sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science) together with basic knowledge in medicine and biology (biology, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology) but also including an education in various areas of engineering (electronics, automation, mechanical, chemical, electrical) and specific knowledge about their use in the biomedical field. In line with the Ministerial Decree of 26 July 2007, the degree course meets the requirements of both the Graduate Class of Information Engineering (class L-8) and the Industrial Engineering Degree class (class L-9). Thus, the course integrates the educational objectives of the two classes, allowing to outline a track that can provide a comprehensive overview of the skills typically required of biomedical engineers. The specific graduating class (L-8 or L-9) must be chosen at the first year of the degree course, but it can be changed until the start of the third year, when the student will have acquired the necessary background for a conscious and mature choice.
