Master in Health engineering

  • Voir la page en français



The “Health Engineering” Masters were created in 2003 and are organised by the Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy in Grenoble.

Previously accommodating a hundred students at M2 level, this course now has more than 350 students shared between both the M1 + M2 offer. At a time when multidisciplinarity is considered one of the driving forces of progress in the health sector, this Master is a place for young scientists (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.), doctors, pharmacists, engineers, radiographers, veterinarians or midwives to meet. Local, national or international partnerships, strong connections with the working environment and good integration numbers for graduates all explain the attraction observed over the last few years, with, for example, nearly 50% of our M2 students coming from M1 courses other than the Health Engineering course. 

The teams managing this course come from a community of teacher-researchers and researchers who practice their research activities within laboratories associated with the CNRS, or the CEA or INSERM and within departments of the Grenoble University hospital (CHU).The subjects, tasks and work placements offered to the students vary from learning about the most fundamental notions to the development of applications that are immediately useable in clinical practice or in public health. Solutions are based on the most recent tools and findings in mathematics, physics, computer science or biology.
All curricula require a strong collaboration between the health departments and the teams from scientific and technical disciplines and involve many industrialists.


The IS Master’s degree contains 13 2nd-year Master’s courses in the fields of medtech, pharmacy, biotechnology and environment-health relations. These courses provide access to occupations which meet society’s needs both in fundamental research and in clinical research and the development of industrial applications. The occupations carried out by our graduates are not limited to research and development as our students are also trained, depending on their chosen course, in quality, regulations, industrial property and even management.
