Master in Biomedical Engineering


Master in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is a scientific-technological area in which innovative technologies are developed for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, thus contributing to an improvement in health care and in understanding the functioning of the human body.


The Master in Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary course, with a very comprehensive training, covering the main themes of this scientific area, such as: Medical Imaging, Medical Instrumentation, Biosignal Processing, Radiation and Radiotherapy, Nanomedicine and Applications of Photonics to Medicine.
Students are encouraged to develop projects, undertake internships in a clinical environment and find solutions to existing gaps in the healthcare sector.

About the Department of Physics

The Physics Department (DF), formally created in 1986, was a pioneer in Portugal in teaching Physics Engineering. Presently, the DF carries out its teaching activities (1st, 2nd and 3rd cycles), fundamental and applied research and technological development in the fields of Physics, Physical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. It is also dedicated to providing services and to scientific dissemination in these fields.

The department's scientific activity is essentially carried out in two research units, LIBPhys-UNL and CEFITEC. Research covers several areas, such as atomic and molecular physics, nuclear and plasma physics, surface and interface physics, laser and vacuum physics, instrumentation, analytical techniques applied to health and cultural heritage, medical instrumentation, medical imaging, machine learning, biosignals and tissue engineering.
