The Biomedical Engineering programme of University of Liège includes both specific training in biomedical engineering, organised in conjunction with the Faculties of Science and of Medicine, as well as technical training delivered by the other Applied Sciences programmes.


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.
