Course ⋅ 20 hAutonomy ⋅ 4 hStudy ⋅ 8 h


The aging of the population and the great advances in biology in recent years are opening up new avenues in terms of care and responses to societal expectations. In these advances, engineering problems take an increasingly important place (Development of diagnostic devices, production of drugs, miniaturization of devices, Biomaterials, Tissue engineering). The objective of the course is to show the potentiality of approaches coupling engineering and biology.
