Undergraduate Degree in Biomedical Engineering

The Course aims at establishing an interface between the different types of Engineering and the Health Sciences, integrating the typical Engineering applications into therapy and diagnosis, contributing to their development, giving them applicability in an area of growing interest, and also providing them with the modelling and predictability which are characteristic of exact sciences.

Thus, students are expected acquire the following skills:

To be able to process bioelectric data through the use of biosensors and adequate instruments allowing for the detection and monitoring of physiological signals;

To model and simulate biological systems control processes through system analysis;

To obtain a graphic representation or an image of physiological functions or of anatomic details through the use of medical imaging;

To promote the usage and development of new materials and equipment with biological uses, both in the area of interfaces and in micro-machinery;

To support the automation in decision making processes, through the use of medical information systems and artificial intelligence.
