Competences to be gained during study

 

   -

To use IT tools to search for reference resources or information related to medical technologies and bioengineering (Personal).

   -

To be able to work independently (Personal).

   -

To be able to work in a team or a multidisciplinary group (Personal).

   -

To be able to take initiative, act in an entrepreneurial way and lead (Systemic).

   -

To be able to work in a multilingual environment and communicate and transmit knowledge, procedures, results, abilities and skills (oral and written) in a native and a foreign language (Instrumental).

   -

To be able to take further studies and to develop a positive attitude in order to keep knowledge up-to-date in a process of lifelong learning. To have sufficient depth of knowledge to start postgraduate studies in the field of advanced biomedical engineering.

   -

To gain an understanding of the interaction of engineering with other areas of knowledge (medicine, biology, biotechnology, pharmacy, veterinary science) and to be able to collaborate effectively in multidisciplinary teams, with a knowledge of the principles of complementary technologies.

   -

To use systems for the search and retrieval of biomedical information and procedures for clinical data. To be able to understand and critically interpret scientific texts and their sources.

Learning objectives

 

Referring to knowledge

The Final Project is an individual piece of work intended to showcase an integrated understanding of the topics and skills acquired during the course of study.

 

 

Teaching blocks

 

 

 

Teaching methods and general organization

 

— The teaching methodology is based on active learning from practical work. Skills are acquired through the completion of a project comprising the following stages: conception (idea), design, planning, development and project assessment.

— Students meet with their supervisor periodically to discuss their progress with the project and to receive guidance and suggestions.

— The project should involve experimental/theoretical research and a specific development in biomedical engineering.

— The project must be presented in a report, written in English, containing the recommended sections developed in the Projects subject, during the Degree.

— The report should be written according to the official template.

— The report should be uploaded to the Virtual Campus in accordance with procedures and deadlines.

— All reports must be submitted in PDF format.

— Examination is based on a public oral presentation of the project, followed by a discussion. Presentations should last 10 minutes approximately, followed by 10 minutes of debate.

— All the sessions and the TFG final report are in English.

 

 

Official assessment of learning outcomes

 

Assessment takes into account:

— the scientific and technical quality of the work presented;
— the oral presentation and discussion.

To grade each student’s work, the examination panel uses assessment rubrics.
