The course in brief


The Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering provides in-depth training in the disciplines of Information Engineering (mathematics, physics, computer science, signals and systems), which is supplemented with specific content in the areas of life sciences (physiology) and biomedical applications of engineering  (bioelectronics, measurements, biomedical signals and instrumentation, biomaterials).

Learning by doing

Theoretical training is accompanied by examples and applications, characterized by a strong interdisciplinary component.

The lectures are complemented by:

  • laboratory experiences on the use of instruments for electrical, mechanical and physiological measurements
  • development of software projects for biomedical applications

Professional outlets

Biomedical Engineering is a booming field, both nationally and internationally.

Most graduates go on to further studies, but the degree  opens up interesting career opportunities in industry (production of medical devices, medical-surgical devices, biomaterials for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, care and function monitoring; related technical and commercial support) and in services (management of biomedical technologies, telemedicine applications, information systems in hospital and rehabilitation facilities).

Did you know that.

Il Corso di Laurea in Ingegneria Biomedica dell'Università di Genova è stato, insieme a quello del Politecnico di Milano, il primo ad essere istituito in Italia, nel 1995.

Secondo un'indagine U.S. (YI Advisors), l'ingegnere biomedico e' stato riconosciuto tra i tre lavori più promettenti per i millennials (+27% di posti nel 2022)

Circa il 75% degli intervistati da Doxa giudica i nostri ingegneri pari o superiori a quelli di altri atenei

Il comparto produttivo dell'Ingegneria Biomedica conta in Europa decine di migliaia di imprese, con un fatturato di più di 100 miliardi di Euro e 650.000 posti di lavoro, di cui quasi 80.000 in Italia (ISTAT 2018).


Interdisciplinarity as the key to innovation

The application dimension of new technologies and scientific discoveries necessarily passes through the dialogue between different disciplines. The course of study in Biomedical Engineering, with its specific training path, educates to an intersectoral, multidisciplinary attitude, naturally vocated to innovation.

A multipurpose professional figure possessing a solid technical-biological background

The initial part of the education (first year) provides a basic preparation in the physical-mathematical disciplines that form the foundation of all engineering studies.  The methodological-analytical content of the basic teachings aims to develop logical-mathematical reasoning and a quantitative mindset. 

Mathematics, physics and chemistry content is supplemented by teaching Physiology, which forms the foundation for specific bioengineering content.

The second year focuses on the disciplines of information engineering (signals and systems). The foundational content of bioengineering is introduced, to which much of the third year is devoted, including laboratory activities.

In particular, the following are provided to students

  • elements for understanding the interaction between devices, equipment, instrumentation, materials, and biological phenomena
  • instruments and methods for measuring and processing biomedical data and signals

The course also allows students to acquire good communication and interpersonal skills, which are essential since the biomedical engineer will often find himself or herself as an interface between professionals with extremely diverse skills and cultural backgrounds.


Welcome to the graduate program in Biomedical Engineering.

All of our faculty members are heavily involved in research activities in the various areas of bioengineering. For this reason, the teaching content is always up-to-date and cutting-edge.

By joining our community-students, faculty, mentors, technicians, and administrative staff-you will develop the skills necessary to use the tools and techniques of engineering to solve medical and biological problems.

You will live and study in a friendly atmosphere and share a passion for bioengineering with us.
