  • International experience
  • Joint research activity with the non-academic sector 

The establishment of a joint Bioengineering and Medical-Surgical Sciences programme between Politecnico di Torino and Università degli Studi di Torino, providing a common high-level training for engineers, biologists, physicians, surgeons and dentists, represents an answer to the demand for a greater competitiveness at international level, but also a novelty in the framework of national scientific and educational organisations.

From such research and training cooperation, it is likely to develop the basis for the devise of cutting-edge methodologies and technologies, which could provide an answer to most recent problems in biomedical research and to propose innovative solutions that could have an deep impact on reality of healthcare and production system.

The educational objectives of the course concern the training of a new generation of researchers with expertise in medical sciences, surgical and medical technologies, capable of conceiving, designing, testing, and transferring into clinical practice the therapeutic strategies based on medical and surgical devices and biomedical technologies which could range from the atomistic scale to the macro scale. 

This will allow to compete for research funding CALLs on numerous issues in line with the objectives of Horizon 2020 (in particular Society challenges: health, demographic change and well-being).

Career

The medical device market is constantly growing and becoming comparable to the drugs market. In this area, the space for further technological innovations that result from extensive scientific and medical researches is huge, also thanks to the development of new areas of research as described above and inter-disciplinary contexts, such as nanotechnology.

In this context, the companies that produce medical devices, in particular implantable ones, need to find experts that are able to secure sufficient technological innovation, making their products competitive on the market. Similarly, public hospitals and private clinics need qualified personnel capable of interacting with technology providers to ensure increasingly advanced, competitive and high-quality services. The professional environment must also be characterized by a careful and thorough knowledge of the regulatory frameworks for medical devices, which are increasingly stringent and constantly evolving.
