The Biomedical Engineering programme of University of Liège offers an introduction to the life sciences:

  • systems physiology;
  • general and cell biology;
  • biophysics and biochemistry;
  • bioinformatics and genetics;
  • modelling biological systems;
  • transport phenomena;
  • introduction to the neurosciences;
  • laboratory project.

Learning outcomes

ULiège's biomedical civil engineers will have acquired all the polytechnical skills of a civil engineer based on solid foundations in mathematics and physics. Furthermore, they will have acquired:

  • a basic understanding of biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, genetics, physiology and neuroscience, which will enable them to communicate with biologists and physicians, and to understand the challenges in their disciplines;
  • a cross-sectoral training in engineering technologies applied to life sciences in the fields of biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, bioinformatics, imaging and biomedical signals, and modelling life at a molecular, cellular and systems level;
  • a technical training which gives them access to specialised training in one of the following fields: imaging, signals and bioinstrumentation, bioinformatics and modelling, biomechanics, civil engineering and the material sciences;
  • an ability to implement their skills via the Final Dissertation (and potentially an internship at a company) in a concrete biomedical application.

Biomedical civil engineers are capable of evaluating the limits of a theory. They know how to carry out experimental work and interpret the results of an experiment with a critical eye. During the different projects and their Final Dissertation, they will have learnt how to work independently and in a team, and to present the results of their work in writing and orally, in French and English. They will be capable of researching, evaluating and using information from technical and scientific literature appropriately. Their training will have opened them up to research issues and they will be capable of interacting with specialists from different disciplines.

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
GMAT admission requirements GMAT The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a test intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. GMAT contains 4 sections - Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal. The score has a range from 200 - 800.

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at desiganated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
PTE Academic admission requirements PTE Academic PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. The score refers to a total score which ranges between 10 and 90.
