The Master Programme in Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics (MEBB) aims to train professionals in a complex and rapidly evolving multidisciplinary scientific and technological area, which is Biomedical Engineering. MEBB provides advanced training in health and physics, including: studying the human body and modelling health and disease processes; the study of the principles and technologies used in health and well-being promotion, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation; biomedical R&D and complex data analysis; the development of medical devices; and entrepreneurship.
MEBB also offers the possibility of conducting an internship in a R&D, hospital or business environment, enabling students to integrate the labour market in biomedical R&D, health and information technology companies or create their own startup, in Portugal or abroad, meeting the needs of a society in demographic transition.
