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.
