Course Introduction

This course is a field of engineering that relies on highly inter' and multi'disciplinary approaches to research and development, in order to address biological and medical problems. Specialists in this area are trained to face scientific and technological challenges that significantly differ from those related to more traditional branches of engineering. Nevertheless, at the same time Biomedical Engineering makes use of more traditional engineering methodologies and techniques, which are adapted and further developed to meet specifications of biomedical applications.

Course Modules

Modules include: Fundamentals of human physiology; ethics and regulatory affairs in the biomedical field; advanced aspects of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and biomaterials; advanced techniques to synthesize and/or characterise materials for biomedical engineering; mechanics of tissues, cells and sub'cellular components; biocompatibility of implantable materials and devices; materials and techniques for nanotechnology and nanomedicine.
