Introduction

The master's degree in Biomedical Engineering provides advanced training in various aspects of the discipline. It provides the foundations for academic or professional specialization and an introduction to applied research. Essentially, the course is designed to complement and reinforce the training of graduates in biomedical engineering.

Biomedical Engineering is generally defined as the discipline addressing the application of electrical, mechanical, chemical or other principles to the understanding, modification and control of biological systems and to the design and manufacturing of products for monitoring biological functions in diagnostic and treatment applications. These essential aspects of health technologies and medical products are outlined in corresponding European guidelines and the legislation of all developed countries.

The significant medical developments of the second half of the twentieth century would not have been possible without new technologies and advanced techniques, which have been used to find solutions to social and medical problems related to diseases and disabilities, to examine the efficacy, effectiveness and safety of these solutions; to manage resources, and to improve communication and information systems in the field of healthcare.

The overall concept of socio-sanitary technology is broad-reaching and relates to any form of technological innovation applied to health services and to improving the quality of healthcare available to the general population.

The accurate selection and skilled application of health technologies, coupled with rigorous scientific research, technological development and innovation (R&D&I), is therefore a fundamental tool not only for improving the health, welfare and quality of life of the population but also for optimizing the social return on investment in this field.

The program is also available in Catalan.
