Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering Vera (València) Campus, Universitat Politècnica de València

MD in Biomedical Engineering

60 credits ECTS

Introduction

Biomedical Engineering is the discipline which make use of the principles and methods of engineering for the comprehension, definition and solution of problems in biology and medicine.

The demand of engineers to develop, design and install medical instrumentation, as well as to train professional on the use of such instrumentation, has experienced a sharply growth according to the advances in medical technology. These essential aspects on medical technologies are nowadays considered in European directives and in the legislation of all developed countries.

The contents of this Inter-University Master's degree have been developed by professors from the Universitat Politéncia de Valencia and with the support of Industrial and telecommunications engineering superior technical schools with the purpose of offering a qualified and mixed training in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
