2. General presentation of the study programme

Development of Life Sciences and the contribution of Bioengineering

Many of the most significant areas of scientific and technological development in the new century concern medical and biological sciences, attention to health, nutritional and environmental problems and rapid advances in the areas of gene therapy and biotechnologies. These topics require quality and innovation in teaching, research and support to company development.

The contribution of Biomedical Engineering (Bioengineering) to the scientific and technological progress in this area is ever more important. The study of the living systems, the interaction with the environment, drug development, tissues, prostheses and artificial organ engineering, biomedical equipment and instrumentation, biomedical signals and images and ICT applications constitutes an essential contribution to this progress and stimulates huge investments and employment opportunities.

 

Preparing the Biomedical Engineer

Biomedical Engineering uses engineering methodologies and technologies to describe, understand and solve problems of medical-biological interest via a close interdisciplinary cooperation amongst engineers, biophysicists, medical doctors and biologists.

 Biomedical engineers are leading players in the introduction of new technologies and development of innovative methods and products by creating:

- increased knowledge of the operation of biological systems both in the normal and pathologic conditions;

- development of new devices, equipment, procedures and systems for prevention, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation;

- conception and development of new prostheses, artificial organs, life support systems, aids and prostheses for the disabled;

- study and research of advanced and innovative materials, of cellular behaviour for reconstruction and remodelling of biological organs and tissue;

- exploration of new, advanced technological developments in bio-and nano-technologies;

- identification of structures and services for the management of health systems, mostly from the technological and organisational point of view;

- definition of most correct and safe usage of methodologies and technologies in the health system;

- cost reduction via the optimal usage of resources according to real needs.

 

 Development of the teaching programme in the Biomedical Engineering field at Politecnico di Milano

Politecnico di Milano has provided teaching (single courses) in Biomedical Engineering since the end of the 60’s. In the late 70’s, this experience has generated two Bioengineering Tracks framed both in the Electronic and Mechanical Engineering programmes. In 1996, these tracks merged to form the first five-year Master of Science (MS) Programme in Biomedical Engineering in Italy.  Since from 1983 a PhD programme in Bioengineering is available. 

The current Biomedical Engineering Programme was initiated in the academic year 2000-01 pursuant to the Ministerial Decree 509/99. It was later modified according to the Ministerial Decree 270/04, and is divided into three subsequent levels:

  • 3-year Bachelor of Science;
  • 2-year Master of Science;
  • 3-year Ph.D.

 

Teaching Regulations of the Programme

The teaching load is expressed in credits (SECTOR/ECT). A SECTOR/ECT is equivalent to 25 hours of average workload done by the student (e.g. approx. 8 hours of room lectures with corresponding individual study and exam preparation) and corresponds to one ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credit. Approximately 1500 hours of work per year are equivalent to 60 ECTS.

Teaching Regulations of the  Programme in Biomedical Engineering are designed to comply with a number of general aims:

1st Level (BS)

  • to design a harmonic Bachelor Programme in basic engineering and biomedical engineering;
  • to satisfy the requirements of the Information Engineering Class (class L8) and the Industrial Engineering Class (class L9) degrees, to allow the choice of the degrees to qualify in at the beginning of the third year;
  • to provide adequate space for guidance towards the employment world via an external Traineeship or a Final Project in the third year.

 2nd Level (MS)

  • to allow the choice among 4 “guided” tracks related to the fundamental disciplines of biomedical engineering, but also to permit individual  choices of the student (see the MD270 Master of Science teaching regulations);
  • to focus the completion of a methodological training with laboratory activity in the chosen track areas;
  • to allow a significant and autonomous development of a thesis work, under the guidance of a supervisor.

 The best students enrolled in the MS programmes, can also apply to the Alta Scuola Politecnica, an advanced educational programme co-organised by Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino. For further information, see www.altascuolapolitecnica.it 

 

The PhD in Bioengineering, lasting three years (180 credits including study periods abroad and internships at public or private bodies), is aimed at acquiring the necessary skills to carry out highly qualified research activity in industrial and service companies, public and private bodies and Universities. The Ph.D. course offers specifically designed introductory courses, basic and specialised research training and the opportunity to go into depth on advanced scientific problems in the sectors of Biomedical Engineering either at Politecnico di Milano or at national and international Universities and Bodies.


3. Learning objectives

The main objective of the Bachelor of Science Course is to form in the student a solid background in engineering methodologies and technologies applied to the medical/biological issues, namely:

  • to provide a sound mathematical and scientific preparation;
  • to provide adequate preparation in medical/biological fundamentals;
  • to provide the fundamentals in Electronic, Information, Mechanical and Chemical Bioengineering, with a unified and wide-spectrum preparation;
  • to provide engineering fundamentals compatible with both the Information and Industrial Engineering classes;
  • to develop the skill to analytically describe, simulate and analyse medical/biological problems;
  • to offer the possibility to go into detail for application issues in a specific area of Bioengineering to be chosen in the third year.

4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

4.2 Further Studies

The Bachelor Degree (BS) in Biomedical Engineering allows the admission to the Master of Science (MS), as per the limitations established by law and by the regulations approved by each individual University.
The most natural step is the progression onto a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering, offered by the School of Industrial and Information Engineering of Politecnico di Milano on the Milan Leonardo Campus. See the Teaching Regulations of the Master of Science for admission requirements


5. Professional opportunities and work market

Final activities of 3° year (DM270)

 

10 Sector are on wide choice:

  • Table Bio – Inside a previously approved Track, it is possible to make a choice from Table BIO among bioengineering applications useful for a dedicated specialised field. Such teaching courses are present also among basic bioengineering teaching courses of CLM. Some courses are not advised to the students who do not continue towards CLM, the other choices could be useful to fulfill professional issues.
  • L-POLI – The choice of any teaching course (or group of courses) inside 1° level of Politecnico di Milano is previously authorized, provided that it is not in significant overlapping with courses already present in the course Programme. Such an option requires the filling in of an autonomous Programme.

 

The following options are provided, on the basis of the planned choice and for the preparation of the final exam:

  • 5 Sector Project and Introduction to Numerical Methods – Adviced to the students who intend to continue towards CLM. The Project and the Final Exam allow to obtain an applicative expertise and an autonomous work in small groups.
  • External Traineeship of 10 Sector – It is adviced to the students who do not intend to continue to CLM. It constitutes an important professional training issue. The admission is on limited number upon a merit ranking determined by the average grade and the number of Sector’s obtained up to the end of 2^ year.
  • 5 Sector Project and teaching course on choice in Tables INF or IND – This is an option suggested to the students who do not intend to go on to CLM, in alternative to the External Traineeship. Tables INF and IND list courses for in-depth knowledge in the Information and Industrial  fields, respectively: they are useful for the getting through of the correspondent State Exam, Section B (iunior).

 

 

Final Report and Final Exam:

The results of the student’s activity inside a Project course or External Traineeship are summarized in a written Report and presented in a Final Exam (3 Sector). See sec. 7.5 on the modalities of Degree Examinatione.

 

Note on the teaching course of Introduction to Numerical Methods. It is listed among the pre-requisites for the admission to CLM. The students who chooses the external Traineeship and intend to continue on to CLM must consequently insert the teaching course of Introduction to Numerical Methods as a surplus exam, or to get these credits through the attendance as a single teaching course before the admission to CLM. The same stays for the students who choose a teaching course (INF, IND, L-POLI) different from Introduction to Numerical Method.


7.3.1 Detailed notes and requirements


Information on the educational offer, complete with details and comments, is available in the academic regulations that can be consulted on the School's website:

Suggested exam priorities

Should attendance or re-attendance of a course change the proposed order of semesters, it is advisable to contact the professor or the Programme guidance bodies.

 

Examinations passed before enrolling on the Master of Science programme (LM)

During the Bachelor degree, students can, in the interests of future admission onto a Master of Science programme:

  • A1) earn SECTOR credits by passing extra MS examinations, included in their personal study plans and considered “advance” SECTOR’s that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded an MS.
  • A2) acquire attendance status in MS modules.  As 1) but without passing the examination which, thanks to the acquisition of attendance status, may be taken in the first available session after enrolment in the Master of Science.
  • A3) Earn SECTOR credits for curriculum integrations established by an ad hoc Master of Science admissions Board; these SECTOR credits are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Master of Science.

In the period between awarding of the Bachelor Degree and enrolment on the MS, in the interests of the latter, it is possible to:

  • B1) earn SECTOR credits from successful MS examinations by enrolling on MS modules as individual modules. These are considered “advance” SECTOR’s that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded a MS.
  • B2) acquire attendance status in MS. modules As 1) but without passing the examination.
  • B3) Earn SECTOR credits for curriculum integrations established by an ad hoc Master of Science admissions Board; these SECTOR credits are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Master of Science.

 The following limitations are to be taken into consideration:

  1. the total number of SECTOR credits (by passing examinations and/or by acquiring attendance status) that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 SECTOR credits needed to be awarded the MS (A1+A2+B1+B2) is limited to 30. Thus any additional SECTOR credits earned exceeding 30 will not be taken into account.
  2. the number of SECTOR credits from curriculum integrations established by the MS. Admissions Boards in addition to the 120 SECTOR credits needed to be awarded the M.Sc. (A3 and B3) is not subjected to limitations.

 

Individual Study Track

Any individual study tracks will be accepted under exceptional circumstances for good reasons.

Exceptions to this limitation are made:

  • for students whose study tracks have actually become “individual” following changes made to the Academic Regulations of the Programme;
  • for Bachelor Degree students who submit individual study tracks in order to participate in international exchange programmes.
