Health & biotech engineers

This major uses teaching that combines life and human sciences, artificial intelligence and technologies, medical regulations and biotechnologies. Engineers taking this major are therefore positioned at the intersection between people, technology and medical professionals, and are at the heart of the digital transformation of the medical sector and biotechnologies.

#TECHFORHUMANS, projects that help people

Our students excel working on innovative projects that help people. The multidisciplinary scientific training combined with the available facilities (Fab Lab, IoT laboratory, deep learning computational server, etc.) help students design and develop prototypes that win recognition in major national competitions and lead to the creation of startups: custom orthopaedic supports, connected skin, artificial hands, using AI to help people with disabilities, physiotherapy aids, brain-machine interfaces, etc.
