Overview

The heterogeneous cohort of students will be provided with all necessary skills, which will augment their capacity to appreciate, and understand each other, thus intensifing the collaborative work in multidisciplinary area of biomedical engineering. 

The multidisciplinary Biomedical Engineering (Biomechanics)  programme from University of Malta is based on the expansion of engineering skills applied to biological systems and a solution of medical, pathological or trauma issues. 

This will encourage the innovative and creative approach to a problem solving strategy as there are no standard solutions since the medical expert deals with a unique individual patient.

Career opportunites and access to further studies

Abilities gained during the course are generic skills that do not apply only to the field of biomedical engineering, they can be transferred to any other engineering and medical activities.

With a prospect for the future development in Malta, these general skills, and knowledge gained are necessary for the development of a new biomedical industry that can support the local health care system and contribute to the wellbeing of the whole society. It provides the background for knowledge-based industry and an opportunity to establish new SME's based on a new research and medical technology development.
