This specialty considers health technologies from the system point of view and based on multi-scales and multi-physical problems resolution approaches. The future health devices will link miniature electronic components with mechanical elements of the micro-, or even nano-scale, and with biological elements. This multidisciplinary, multi-scale, and multi-physical approach, at odds with the health technological tools of today, is the core of this specialization course.
The Major in Interacting Complex Systems is an integral part of the Labex "System of Systems Control" education program. It benefits from the Government label as a “laboratory of excellence” (Spring 2011), with 3 joint UTC/CNRS research units: BMBI (UMR 7338), Heudiasyc (UMR 7253) and Roberval (UMR 7337).
The program relies on the strong research and education tradition in biomechanics and biomedical engineering of UTC. The classical disciplinary approaches (engineering sciences, health sciences, human sciences) will be transcended for grouping all their components into a multi-disciplinary education program.
The specialty has the following main subjects of study :
- living systems modeling,
- weakly structured data processing and knowledge extraction,
- physical reality and complexity management,
- fluid mechanics and turbulence,
- multi-scale and multi-physical analysis and inverse problems,
- biomechanics, biomaterials and human tissue engineering.
Students who successfully complete the BMI Master’s degree can apply for professional positions in the following areas:
- biomedical and bioengineering industries (sports and medical equipment, prosthesis, etc.)
- legal medical entities, medical devices/processes certification
- research, teaching, higher education
