Bachelor in Engenharia Biomédica - Bioeletrónica

Course Objectives

The propose of the course is to train professionals with practical skills in healthcare instrumentation for diagnosis, monitoring and therapeutic, without disregarding a solid theoretical training, supplying students with the tools needed to properly address practical problems that may arise in their professional lives, ability to innovate, and also to provide them with the knowledge needed to allow the pursuit of a lifelong learning, including the prosecution of the 2nd and 3rd cycles.
It has a careful curricular structure in which the knowledge previously acquired in Base Sciences Engineering Sciences,in Informatics but mainly in Electronics and Instrumentation are applied in solving specific problems, particularly in the field of Health, in the curricular units that comprise the area of Specialty Sciences in Biomedical Engineering, culminating with the development of a laboratory,corporate and/or of scientific research work, in the curricular unit of Project/Internship.

Access Conditions

The application to the course is conditioned upon obtaining 95 in 200 points, with rankings computed by weighting 65% of the average obtained in the Secondary Education, with a minimum of 95 in 200 points, and 35% of the marks obtained in the tests of the specific tests, also with a minimum of 95 in 200 points, with the latter being the tests of Mathematics (code 16) and Physics and Chemistry (code 07).

Professional Outlets

The aim is to address the demand and expectations of companies devoted to commercialization, maintenance and servicing of healthcare equipment, institutions under the supervision of the Ministry of Health, such as hospital installation and maintenance departments of healthcare equipment, companies strongly oriented to technological innovation and development of equipment and embedded healthcare solutions, as well as institutions devoted to teaching and research in the field of Biomedical Engineering.

Learning Objectives

The course aims to train professionals with expertise in the field of Instrumentation, with emphasis on (Bio)medical Equipment, without neglecting the Basic Sciences, fundamental for a better understanding of the principles on which the (Bio)medical Equipment/Instrumentation rely. For this purpose, generic and specific skills were defined,in order to endow the students for a good performance in their future professional activity.
The most relevant generic skills, implemented through the working methods and demanding instilled in students in all curricular units, are the ability of oral and written communication, lifelong autonomous learning,capability to work individually and embedded in multidisciplinary groups, competence for decision making and entrepreneurship, as well as the concern for quality, including compliance with professional and ethical responsibilities.
With regard to specific skills, it is noteworthy to emphasize a basic knowledge in Health Sciences, allowing the students a better understanding of the overall functioning of the human body as well as the ability to communicate with the medical community, good knowledge of Base Sciences, namely in mathematics, vital in the acquisition and processing of medical signals and imaging, as well as in data analysis and interpretation of results, as well as in Physics, which contributes to a better comprehension of many physiological processes as well as a good understanding of the working principles of (Bio)medical Equipment/Instrumentation, knowledge in the area of Engineering Sciences, as in Informatcs, including Databases and Programming, but mainly solid knowledge and mastery in solving problems of Electronics and Instrumentation namely related with Specialty Sciences inBiomedical Engineering, basic knowledge in Biomaterials and Biomechanics, needed in the field of artificial organs and prosthesics, ability to conceive and manage projects of installation and maintenance of (Bio)medical Equipment, supported by knowledge of Economics and Business Administration.

Access to Superior Studies

The BSc in Biomedical Eengineering – Bioelectronics allows access to courses of the 2nd cycle (Master’s degree) in the field of Biomedical Engineering where graduates will be able to deepen their knowledge (namely the MSc in Biomedical Instrumentation of ISEC), or related areas, such as Electrotechnical, Informatics or Mechanics Engineering.
