The Master’s Degree Course in Bioengineering aims to train professionals with a strong background in basic engineering subjects, both on a theorical and practical level. Graduate are able to identifiy, analize, describe and solve the main issues of biomedical engineering even the more complex and using an innovative approach.
The main focus is to give student a general and comprehensive view of the main theories not become outdated. Graduates are ready to deal with new issues and they have the necessary skills to keep up with the necessary professional updates both in technological than scientific fields.

Students can choose to focus their study plan between three tracks based their choice on their own cultural interests:
Cells, tissues and devices
Digital Welfare
Biomedical sensors and instrumentation

These main tracks may be personalized by each students with subjects form all fields of engineering studies: from hardware engineering to biomedical engineering, from biomechanics to tissue engineering.

Main study subjecs are: Life sciences (biology, physiology, genetics); Technologies and methodologies to support the biomedical disciplines (instrumentation, date mining, telemedicine, biomachinery, numerical simulations). Each track focus also in specific engineering and scientific research field.

Many courses involved projects and lab works as a way to immediately apply the knowledge gained during classroom studies. This kind of research activities get the students ready for the master thesis research work. The master thesis is a research project developed with the supervision of a professor and it should be innovative both in research methods and in developing theories. Students can choose to work in one of the engineering research labs or with one of the many partner firms.

Application process

Candidate’s application will be send to an evaluation committee that may take up to 45 days to provide an answer. The committee’s answer may be:

an unconditional offer: the candidate has been admitted to the study course and he/she will be enrolled directly if the process at the assigned Italian Representative checks out

a conditional offer : the candidate is conditionally admitted to the study course;

failed : the candidate application does not comply with the academic and personal requirements of the study course.

Types of conditions with the conditional offer:

to pass the test that is held at the University of Pavia, twice a year. If the condition is not fullfill and the candidate does not sit for the test or does not pass the test, he/she will not be enrolled


to complete the academic background with additional subjects before enrolling
