BME - BioMedical Engineering

Students coming from the first year of the MSc in Health Engineering choosing the Biomedical Engineering track gain a general education in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging, enabling them to work in various fields of activity within laboratories and Bio-Medtech companies.

The teaching modules highlight the design and manufacturing process of cell and tissue, focusing on 3D culture in bioreactors, stem cell biology and biomechanics. More specific courses are dedicated to personalised medicine and the elaboration of physiological 3D models of organ with cell raised from patients. Applications for these models are basic biology, pharmacology/drug testing and grafting. In line with the Manutech-SLEIGHT Graduate School expertise, we specifically consider the importance of Optics and Photonics in biomedical imaging and biomaterials manufacturing (implants and sensors).

In order to join the Master's degree in Health Engineering, applicants must have done an MSc.’s first year in biology, medicine, biological sciences or sports physiology. For student engineers with background in informatics, mathematics or optics, a specific list of courses from the first year of the MSc. in Health Engineering will be proposed.


Students from the BME track work in various fields of activity within laboratories and Bio-Medtech companies. This master programme also qualifies the postgraduate for PhD studies.
  • 75% of students found a position right after the BME track.
  • 50% of students are enrolled in a PhD.
