Master Degree (M.Sc.)

Master Degree (M.Sc.)

Programme description 

The Biomedical Engineering study programme is organised on three levels:

  • Laurea in Ingegneria Biomedica, equivalent to the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (B.Sc.), a three years program;
  • Laurea Magistrale (LM) in Biomedical Engineering, equivalent to the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (M.Sc.), a two-year graduate program.
  • the Ph.D. programme, a three year program for students graduated with a M.Sc. degree.

The Laurea Magistrale in Biomedical Engineering is a second-level degree and it’s a two year programme. The student has the possibility to deepen the more advanced topics on the Biomedical Engineering. The program offers different types of courses, among these we recall the Laboratory Courses (LAB courses) and the course listed in the Medicine programme offered by the University degli Studi di Milano (MED courses).

This second-level programme foresees a Master Thesis as conclusive work. During this period the student can partecipate to research and project activities led by professors of Politecnico di Milano and/or in collaboration with companies or other Universities or research centres in Italy or in other countries.

The courses are taught in Italian or in English, please visit the full programme description and the description of each single course for further details.

Double degree in Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc.)

This is an internal double Master degree in Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering offered by Politecnico di Milano. Specific information are available at the following  link.

Double degree in Biomedical and Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology (M.Sc.)

Laboratory Courses (LAB courses)

The program of Laurea Magistrale in Biomedical Engineering offers the possibility to attend laboratory courses. A limited number of students is admitted to these course, for this reason there is a selection procedure. At the following link you can find the rules for the Lab Courses. The list of the available LAB courses can be found at the webpage of the degree Programme.

“Capstone Project” and “Inter CS” courses

The “Inter CS” courses are available since the A.Y. 2021/2022 and they are three courses with a limited number of places offered in two different study programme (CS).

Materials and Technologies for 3D-Bioprinting, 5 CFU (M.Sc. in Biomedical eng. and Material engineering and Nanotechnology)
Statistical Learning for healthcare data, 5 CFU (M.Sc. in Biomedical and Mathematical engineering)
Laboratory of radiotherapy techniques, 5CFU (M.Sc. in Biomedical and Nuclear engineering)

The courses offer basic knowledge on a specific topic but with a complementary point of view to those students coming from two different study programmes. The objective is to offer courses taught by professors coming from different disciplines so to deepen a specific topic with a multidisciplinary approach.

The “Capstone Project” courses are available since the A.Y. 2021/2022 and they are two courses with a limited number of places offered at the first and at the second semester.

They are laboratory courses in collaboration with companies aimed at expanding the curriculum of the Master Students in Biomedical engineering. The maximum number of students for each courses will be defined according to the number of projects available and proposed by the companies.

Students are suggested to attend at the “Inter CS” and “Capstone Project” courses preferably at the second year of the Master degree. They are optional courses and they cannot be considered as a replacement of a LAB course, which is instead mandatory.

The admission to “Inter CS” and “Capstone Project” courses is subordinated to a ranking and the admission rules can be fund in the following document.

The deadline for the admission to these courses are the following ones
