The understanding of the biomechanical behavior of the musculoskeletal system and the design of medical devices require diversified knowledge in various fields such as medical sciences (anatomy, cell and tissue biology, medical imaging, etc.), mechanics of materials, finite element simulation, motion analysis of the human body. This Master’s degree will provide students all the necessary fundamentals of these domains to allow them to understand a clinical issue and propose realistic and reliable therapeutic solutions. These approaches will be completed by an introduction to biomimetics to show how to get inspiration from nature to design new technical applications.
Academic partners and studying abroad
The enrolled students will have the possibility to spend the summer semester abroad (in or outside the framework of Erasmus exchanges).
Winter semester: composed of 6 compulsory modules including lectures combined with tutorials, practical work, and projects. All classes will be given in English (minimum required level: B1).
- Basic medical knowledge
- Mechanical behavior of biological tissues
- Patient-specific FE modeling
- Transverse project
- Human movement analysis
Summer semester: Master’s Thesis.
After this course, the students will have the opportunity to start a career in public or private sectors as upon graduation they will be able to:
- work in the Research and Development department of biomedical companies
- work in Biomechanics Research laboratories
- carry out a Ph.D. thesis in Biomechanics
