|The Integrated Master in Bioengineering has been awarded the international EUR-ACE quality label. This certifies MIB as a high-quality programme which meets the international standards for professional engineering education at the masters level. [+ info]|
This Integrated masters degree is based on a cooperation between the Faculty of Engineering (FEUP) and ICBAS (Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar). It is a degree which lasts 5 years,in accordance with Lei de Bases do Ensino Superior (Portuguese laws which regulate the education system) – Bologna process. The name given to this degree (BioEngineering) aims to encompass the different applications of Engineering, which are internationally recognized as Biological Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. Even though they are related to different markets, they share a common training.
It aims at preparing students with skills to approach, in a multidisciplinary way, biomedicine and industrial biotechnology problems in the perspective of the processes engineering and the molecular engineering.
This integrated masters offers three different branches or specializations (Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Molecular Biotechnology) after a common branch of two years. The first two branches take place at the Faculty of Engineering, whereas the third at ICBAS
Branch of Biomedical Engineering biomedical instrumentation, processing and analysis of signals and biomedical images, medical devices (external and internal prosthesis), tissue engineering (namely regenerative medicine), telemedicine, bioinformatics, medical robotics (minimally invasive surgery) and bionics.
Branch of Biological Engineering - industries of chemical-biological processes (pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, fragrance) highlighting the importance of natural materials (wood, leather, materials and marine origin products), environment and environmental health (treatment of contaminated waste, environmental quality in hospitals and health companies).
Branch of Molecular Biotechnologysectors where it is a priority to design and develop new products based on molecular biology, especially drugs and diagnostic systems.
Connection to the socio-economic tissue:
Besides the informal presentations given by guests of the business and health world, which will take place since the 1st year of this degree, the course plan also encompasses a short-time internship in the 3rd year, in order to familiarise students with the business environment. At the end of the 5th year it will also take place an internship, which will last one semester.
The MIBuddy program is a mentoring program that takes place in the first curricular year. It aims to guide the students of the first year of MIB, thus facilitating their integration and promoting a good academic path. For more information see https://www.fe.up.pt/~mibuddy
