Specialist tracks

To boost your training, the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Engineering is divided into four innovative specialist tracks:


You will study the engineering methods for designing medical devices, the description of transport phenomena in the biomedical field, the diagnosis of pathologies, the modelling of biological processes, the biomechanics of human movement, the mechanics and dynamics of cells and subcellular structures. You will also gain specialized skills for the selection of different classes of materials in the biomedical field.


You will learn about the methods for designing biocompatible materials, biomimetic scaffolds and drug delivery systems, static and dynamic cell culture techniques (bioreactors), methods for gene therapy and cell therapy strategies, methods for the design of biomimetic systems for regenerative medicine. You will also study in-depth polymer functionalization and transformation/processing techniques and the main technological processes for material transformation.

Biomedical instrumentation

You will study the techniques and methodologies used to develop biomedical instrumentation including design of electronic components, sensors, image analysis techniques, specific aspects such as applications involving electromagnetic fields, Bio- MEMS (biomedical microelectromechanical systems), neuroscience, rehabilitation.


You will learn about the methodologies for designing and running medical software, the main techniques of medical image processing, the tools and methodologies used for telemedicine applications. You will complete your training with knowledge of CAD (Computer Aided Diagnosis) systems and data mining.
