One semester starting in September
This is a one semester program at the Master's level meant for exchange students who are interested in getting some introduction to biomedical engineering.
This program is at the interface between engineering and life sciences. It consists of both a theoretical and a practical program applied to Biology and Medecine. Professors include professionals from medical hospitals and biomedical companies.
It is the result of a partnership with Université Joseph Fourier (UJF) in Grenoble.
Two options are available:
Medical Imaging: design and innovation in medical imaging devices (Xrays, MRI, Ultrasound) and radiotherapy.
Implantable materials and nanobiology: design and innovation in biomaterials for tissue engineering, innovative molecular markers for biology and medecine and also minituarized devices in contact with living matter.
Classes are held at Grenoble INP and at the Université Joseph Foruier on Campus. Labwork takes place at Phelma, one of Grenoble INP's engineering schools, as well as at the Centre Interuniversitaire de Microélectrique, at the Centre Universitaire de Biologie Experimentale and in various other labs in Grenoble.
