A first level degree (B.Sc., 180 ECTS) is mandatory to be admitted to the Laurea Magistrale in Biomedical Engineering, furthermore the bachelor degree programme must be consistent with the study programme of the Laurea in Ingegneria Biomedica (B.Sc in Biomedical Engineering).

In particular, for those students who graduated with a B.Sc.  from any Italian Universities, the student career should have at least 45 basic ECTS credits and 80 characterising ECTS credits in the relevant areas of the Bachelor of Science in “Information Engineering” or “Industrial Engineering”. For those students who graduated with a B.Sc.  from a foreign University or for those students who graduated with a bachelor not in the engineering areas, the study records will be checked by a dedicated committee.

In case an applicant need further credits to fulfil the prerequisites, he/she may attend Individual Courses, in the period before the enrolment to the Master of Science.
