Graduate of Biomedical Engineering

Graduado en Ingeniería Biomédica

When Spanish hospitals from 40 years ago are compared to modern hospitals, one of the clearest differences is the major role of technology. Electronic equipment and mechanical devices have made huge technological advances throughout hospitals: from diagnostic rooms to patient recovery rooms. Key patient management parameters are now recorded in real time in a mobile control unit and nurses will soon be able to receive wireless information from the same control unit.

As a Biomedical Engineering graduate, you’ll be able to participate in research projects at technology centers and in departments that design and develop medical devices and equipment. You’ll be able to develop electrochemical, piezoelectric and thermal microsensors for early diagnosis of disease and monitoring medical parameters. You’ll also be able to develop software that processes brain signals and medical images, improve tissue regeneration and create biomaterials with improved rejection rates. You’ll work on multidisciplinary teams with biologists, biochemists, doctors, pharmacists and engineers to research, design and develop medical solutions and applications.
