Train new experts who can help both industry and hospitals

The new MA in Medical Engineering
Medical engineering

Graduates in Medical Engineering will have the skills required for a wide range of tasks related to supporting physicians and healthcare personnel in a strong technological environment. They will be able to define and implement technological solutions for clinical and rehabilitation activities using diagnostic and medical devices, and the data generated by them.

The deep knowledge of technical aspects of these solutions allows the medical engineer to optimally integrating patient care with diagnostic devices, their implementation, the analysis of the clinical data and their critical review. At the same time, the personalization of care requires innovative technological tools, theoretical models for advanced diagnoses and therapies, and data analysis and artificial intelligence approaches.

The goal is to train a new professional figure, in the field of biomedical engineering, able to work more closely with healthcare professionals, in hospitals and healthcare facilities for the treatment of chronic diseases as well as in companies that supply goods and services in the clinical sector.

Why choose this course?
  • The Medical Engineering degree program combines biomedical engineering with medical needs. To this aim students are trained in the area of industrial and electronic biomedical engineering, alongside the knowledge in medical area, with specific focus on health technologies.
  • The use of medical technologies is nowadays mandatory for disease prevention and care. Physicians need to work in close contact with experts of biomedical technologies. The hospital will become soon high-tech centers for high complexity care, while new technologies will also allow to reduce hospitalization by increasing home- and self-monitoring and telemedicine.
  • The Medical Engineering degree program deals with new trends and guidelines for health care services, promoting a new professional profile based on advanced biomechanics, bioimaging, clinical data processing, hardware and software solutions for medicine, and their interconnection with clinical practice as well clinical investigations.
  • The main objective of the course is to train a new professional able to operate in a national and international context to help industry and hospitals to develop and use efficient technologies into health care facilities, based on innovation but evaluating at the same time technology effectiveness and sustainability.
