The Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES), on the 22nd of November, 2016, and in agreement with the recomendation and fundamentation produced by the respective External Review Team, decided to accredit MEB, without conditions, for a period of 6 (six) years. More information can be found in the reports made available by A3ES.
The MEB master programme (2nd-cycle, 120 ECTS), created in 1996/97, comprises a training component, lasting an academic year, and a period focused on the development, presentation and discussion of the dissertation.
This programme covers a vast range of subjects in the domain of Biomedical Engineering. It is designed to fulfil the needs of those who are looking for a specialized training (graduates in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry mainly), and who are interested in performing scientific and technical activities in health institutions or companies. The scientific committee of the programme may accept candidates who hold diplomas in other subjects, whose training is appropriate to this programme.
The admission prerequisites demand high level knowledge on the domains of Mathematics and Physics.
The MEB programme is accredited by the Agência de Avaliação e Acreditação do Ensino Superior (Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education - A3ES). This accreditation recognizes the high quality standards of the programme, as well as the fulfilling of the education requirements for higher education.
This is not a post working hours programme. Several curricular units of the plan are shared with other programmes, namely the Integrated Master In Bioengineering, and therefore will run in normal timetable schedules.
The numerus clausus is 30 students. The minimum number of students required for the programme to be offered is 10.
This training provides access to exerting a career in areas of activity related to: bioinformatics, biomaterials, biomechanics, biotechnology, medical robotics, biological signals processing, medical image processing, development and application of sensors, bioelectromechanical systems, diagnosis and therapeutic systems, biochemical systems, information systems, telemedicine, rehabilitation engineering, clinical engineering, and management of technology in health and sanitary surveillance.
