The Master Degree in Industrial Bioengineering belongs to the LM-21 class (Classe delle Lauree in Ingegneria Biomedica). The programme is conceived in order to provide the students with ‘tools’ that are necessary to translate the recent outcomes of the biotech field in the development of effective and feasible therapeutic strategies and diagnostic systems. In particular, the course is founded on three main pillars, namely Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Nanomedicine and Diagnostic Devices. Therefore, classes are organized in order to cover various aspects of Industrial Engineering (mechanics, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, material science and technology) that are integrated with a fundamental understanding of biology and medicine.
