Biomedical engineering is a discipline that applies engineering principles to understand, solve, and create solutions to human and animal health problems through the use of technology.

Our Biomedical Engineering program is based on practices, rotations, experiential activities with the environment and teamwork, through strategies of innovation, design, co-creation, and entrepreneurship.

We refine the vocation of our students through immersion in professional environments to deepen and apply their knowledge acquired during their educational process.

We start from our three training stages (exploration, decision and specialization) to promote a development consistent with world trends and University projects.

In the exploration we present learning in basic engineering and health sciences. In the decision, our students receive a training offer that will allow them to refine their professional vocation. And in the specialization we put knowledge into action through deepening and experimentation, to discover new interests in the disciplines of the area.

We design a competency-based approach with emphasis on communication processes, ethical balance, teamwork and the development of the person and the citizen.

We developed this seedbed so that those who do it can learn about the new lines of performance in the health area from engineering, applying creativity and design to improve the quality of life of people and animals.

Our goal is for the new generation to know us and to be able to:

  • Explore different health activities that allow interaction with engineering.
  • Promote a space for young leaders to meet, and learn to work as a team to solve health problems.

• Introduction to health and engineering.

• What can an engineer who likes health work on?
• Bioengineering, nanotechnology.
• Tissue engineering: stem cells, organ and tissue regeneration.
• Personalized medicine: genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.
• Human factors and rehabilitation engineering.
• Assistive technologies for disability.
• Technology management: how technology can help me improve my health.
Design thinking: innovation applied to health.
• Visit to the Veterinary and Animal Husbandry Center - CVZ- for practice in animal rehabilitation.
