Type: First cycle Degree (3 years)
The Bachelor’s degree programme in Biomedical Engineering (class L-8) is held at the Department of Information Engineering, Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona. The aim of the course is to provide students with a solid interdisciplinary background based on the integration of both technical and biological knowledge and skills. Thanks to this interdisciplinary approach, graduates in Biomedical Engineering will have the necessary competencies to be able to find technological engineering solutions to problems of medical and biological nature. The training starts with basic subjects in the area of mathematics, physics, computer science and chemistry, in addition to anatomy or physiology, and the study of a foreign language (typically English). It then focuses on technological subjects specific to the degree class and belonging to the areas of bioengineering, automation, telecommunications, electronics, information and mechanics, as well as on related subjects in the areas of materials, measurements, medicine and biology, some of which are chosen directly by students. The programme totals 180 ECTS and is concluded with an internship and the writing of a thesis.
Role in a work context
Graduates in Biomedical Engineering are versatile professional figures able to fit into the varied world of work and professions in both advanced technologies and medical-biological problems. Thanks to the good technical and scientific grounding acquired during the study path, graduates in Biomedical Engineering will be able to work in companies, public or private clinical/healthcare facilities as well as in the commercial sector of devices and services.
Graduates wishing to acquire further competencies will be able to continue their studies with the Master’s degree programme in Biomedical Engineering.
Skills associated with the role
Graduates in Biomedical Engineering will be able to apply the multidisciplinary knowledge acquired to various sectors in order to contribute to the solution of problems related to human health and wellbeing.
Graduates in Biomedical Engineering will be able to find employment opportunities in a wide range of rapidly changing professional fields. It is expected they will be addressed by interlocutors from the healthcare, industry and services sectors needing to analyse, quantify, control, optimise the impact of technologies on biological phenomena and on man. In particular, they will be able to work in companies, public or private clinical/healthcare facilities and in the commercial sector of devices and services.
