Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
Bachelor’s degree, postgraduate Master’s degree or a three-year diploma or other officially recognised study titles awarded abroad in Engineering. More information about specific academic requirements and our Teaching Committee on the “Requirement” section of this website
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: Italian.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
If you are a non European student residing abroad, you need to do a pre-enrollment via Italian Consulate and start the visa procedures. The official admission at the University of Pavia will be possible only after you will have done this pre-enrollment. Please get in contact with the Italian authority in your country as soon as possible (deadline 24 July).
Non-eu students residing abroad who would like to enroll in a study course completely taught in Italian, such as Laurea Magistrale in Bioingegneria at our University, have to prove their knowledge of Italian through a test as explained here
You do not have to take the test if you enrol in a study course completely taught in English or if you have a certificate proving your knowledge of Italian of level B2 (such as CILS, CELI, Roma3 or CLIDA) – QCER (Common European Framework). More information on our linguistic centre website.
Students also need to have a basic knowledge of English – Level 2 (Common European Framework). You can prove this knowledge with an English certification listed here
If you have been awarded a certificate of knowledge of English language not included in this list you can anyway submit it with your enrolment document and ask for a recognition. Our Dean with the collaboration of the English Language Coordinator will consider your application.
If you do not have any certification you can take the English section of the TOLC-I
Please remember to attach with your application the following documents:
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The main focus is to give student a general and comprehensive view of the main theories not become outdated.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 two tracks based their choice on their own cultural interests:
• Health Technologies
• Bionengineering of cells and tissues
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.
Study plan and further information are available at this link
Graduates from the Laurea Magistrale in Bioingegneria can work in: health care structures, biomedical equipment industry, medical informatics and biotechnologies industry, pharmaceuticals. The need for clinical engineers is constanly growing in the healthcare facilities and biomedical services company. There is also a strong demand for medical database experts and professionals with the skills to use IT tools supporting medical activities.
Bioengineering are also requested in the sector of medical devices.
