The biomedical civil engineer, thanks to its unique multidisciplinary profile, at the crossroads of the biomedical world and engineering, is capable of designing and implementing equipment that meets the complex constraints of technology and life.

Whatever the fields of biomedical engineering, the future belongs to multidisciplinary teams. The biomedical civil engineer therefore has a fundamental role to play in the synthesis of scientific and technological approaches in the biomedical world and in the engineering world.



The biomechanics component emphasizes aspects related to the design, the selection of materials and the fabrication of prostheses, microsurgical instruments and implantable devices, as well as the mechanical analysis of biological systems such as the musculoskeletal system. skeletal with and without prosthesis.

Medical radiophysics

The "medical radiophysics" component makes it possible to understand the aspects related to the use and impact of ionizing radiation (radiotherapy, scanner, etc.) on living tissues. This option allows access to the training of expert in medical radiophysics after a complementary year (internship).

Biomedical Imaging and Informatics

The biomedical imaging and informatics component focuses on aspects related to the acquisition, processing, validation and interpretation of biomedical data. The different modern imaging systems are studied and the images produced are used in various fields, such as diagnostic assistance, surgical planning or operating navigation.


The "biomedical instrumentation" component relates to the development of sensors and stimulators, essentially by digital and analog electronics and microelectronics, for the production of medical devices, implantable or not.
