In order to enrol in our bachelor in Bioengineering and to thrive in your studies, we think you need to have some basic knowledge of mathematics and English language.
• With your high-school final grade from an Italian school upper of equal to 95 out 100 or
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 Bioingeneering 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

Choosing an engineering degree course means being willing to play an important part in our growing and fast developing society. Engineering is the right choice for prospective student
with a strong interest not only in scientific subjects but also in their application and with a “problem solving” attitude. The Faculty of Engineering at University of Pavia also offers an highly effective teaching by professors with a strong scientific background and a direct connection
with the economic environment: this two characteristics make the scientific research and teaching at the Faculty of Engineering constantly linked to a growing industry.
Bioengineering, or Biomedical Engineering, has its roots in the knowledge and expertise of a number applied sciences (electronic, automation, informatics, medicine, economics) and it has been evolving in a fast growing market sector. The sector of biomedical equipment has also been growing fast in last decades and its growth is still going on. Even more impressive has been the growth of biomedical equipment developed on ICT technologies. A Bioengineer needs many different skills: the ability to contribute to the biomedical research and to the clinical practice; the technological knowledge necessary to develop innovative solutions for the health care industry.
This bachelor’ degree course aims to train professionals able to work in management, design, production or research and development in a variety of industries and health care sectors.
Study plan and further information are available at this link .
Bioengineering graduates are well placed to work in private and public healthcare industry, a variety of biomedical industries on medical devices, diagnostics, genetics, healthcare industry support, pharmaceutical manufacture, drug discovery, environmental remediation, or agricultural advancement. There is also a growing demands for engineers in the management of biomedical equipment and ICT supports for medical and healthcare activities so that in the last
decades job offers for biomedical engineers have grown of 60 %.
