Biomedical Engineering focuses on the development of new innovative technological solutions to solve problems in sectors such as healthcare, fundamental medicine and clinical medicine. A biomedical engineer is capable of: designing new equipment for medical imagiology, biomedical devices; producing biomaterials; developing management health systems support tools; or even developing new applications by using cell and tissue engineering for diagnosis, follow-up and medical treatment.
The Biomedical Engineering undergraduate programme is a joint initiative of Instituto Superior Técnico and the Faculty of Medicine of University of Lisbon.
This study cycle (SC) has two major objectives:
• Providing the students with a solid background in Mathematics and fundamental sciences, namely in Physics,
Chemistry, Biology and Medicine, which are the main pillars of the course. This widerange scientific background is essential due to the interdisciplinary nature of the course, the versatility of its students and the characteristics of the labor market.
• Providing the students with the basics and fundamental knowledge of the main themes that will be core in the 2nd SC. Thus, 6 UCs (designated pre-profile) are included in the curricular plan that will address the basics in some of these topics, such as computing, biomechanics, biosignals, tissue engineering and clinical engineering/management.
The curriculum also includes a set of restricted choices, which gives students freedom (and responsibility) to deepen topics of interest, namely in the areas of specialization that they intend to attend in the 2nd SC.
