Master Ingénierie de la santé

Parcours Biohealth engineering 1re et 2e année

Présentation et objectifs

The master's program in BioHealth Engineering (BHE) provides a solid foundation for the development of sustainable biotechnological solutions and their use in health care. Students acquire knowledge about state-of-the-art techniques, experience in operating technological platforms and analyzing big data in the context of human health. Graduates have the competence necessary to research and develop diagnostics, disease prevention tools and therapies

With the rapid advance of biomedical engineering, life sciences and physical sciences have converged to create a new discipline: biomedicine. This convergence is helping scientists to make important breakthroughs, such as innovative tools for diseases detection and drug design and delivery, for modeling diseases progression and drug response aiming at improving our skills in personalized medicine.
Over the past 150 years, thanks to basic and translational science, average life expectancy has increased leading to an increased occurrence in chronic diseases. There is consequently a growing need for scientists to increase their knowledge in multi-pathologic models in order to adjust biomedical innovations. Postgraduate recruits to the fast-growing sector of biomedical engineering will need to bring not only their expertise in a particular field, but also a thorough grounding in a range of technologies and the ability to apply their knowledge and skills to the design of new products and services.

Thus, the first year of the Master BHE aims at teaching basic sciences (basic technical skills in biology and chemistry, statistics, drug design and modeling, physiology, English) and initiation in innovative biomedical engineering (DNA/membrane/cell system technologies, data training). The 1st year of the master's program in BioHealth Engineering (BHE) consists in two terms (S7 and S8) of courses. Each term consist of approximately 30 ECTS credits. The courses presented on this page apply to studies starting in autumn 2022.




Informations complémentaires

Students investigate important questions at the interfaces of biomedical engineering, molecular and nanoscale biotechnology, computational mathematics and clinical research. They undertake individually mentored thesis research projects in laboratories at uga or in partner universities, affiliated spin-offs and teaching hospitals.UGA and its partner institutions provide students with a broad but high-level programme of courses in core subjects which they choose in relation to their individual field of research. these are further enriched by a series of advanced courses in the fundamentals of engineering and biomedical science. students also acquire key transversal skills such as teamwork, management of complex processes, conceptual approaches, entrepreneurship and intercultural awareness.
Biohealth computing schools Unique to health4life’s curriculum are the interdisciplinary and intensive biohealth computing schools (biohc), organised and hosted by the european scientific institute in archamps (greater geneva). as well as meeting and interacting with leading experts from academia, industry and international organisations, students are coached in the use of design thinking methodology to address unmet needs in human and environmental health, with the opportunity to pitch their innovation ideas to a panel of international experts. Health4life is heavily research & innovation- oriented. The programme benefits from the region’s rich ecosystem offering a level of technological know-how unrivalled in Europe, and a truly multidisciplinary approach to scientific research. Grenoble is at the crossroads of three internationally recognised hubs of healthcare, micro-nanotechnology and it-iot. Home to some of the world’s best research centres, grenoble has spurred the creation of a growing cohort of start-ups and has attracted leading multinationals (bioMérieux, GE healthcare, Becton Dickinson, Roche Diagnostics, and Covidien) seeking to carve out a position in the rapidly-growing medtech industry.

Biohealth engineering brings together these strengths in biomedical practice, research, innovation, and entrepreneurship and offers students attractive internships from affiliated teaching hospitals, research institutes (including the cea, europe’s largest independent research centre in nanoelectronics and technology), biotech and medical device companies. Moreover, the programme collaborates with local and regional innovation service providers such as CIC-IT, Biopolis, Linksium, Eccami, Medic@lps, Tasda, Minalogic and Lyonbiopôle.

Biohealth engineering is part of the eit health master on technological innovation on health, founded on long-standing partnerships with major european universities, such as Universitat de Barcelona, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Universidade de Lisboa, Universita de Torino. students are also recruited from world-class universities outside Europe, including Manipal (India), Soochow (China) , Beyrouth (Lebanon) ...

Condition d'accès

The master of Health Engineering is open in initial training and continuing education. The 2nd year is accessible on file (and / or interview) to the candidates having validated the 1st year of master of a compatible course or else by a validation of studies or acquired according to the conditions determined by the university or training.

Public continuing education : You are in charge of continuing education :

  •  if you resume your studies after 2 years of interruption of studies
  • or if you followed training under the continuous training regime one of the previous 2 years
  • or if you are an employee, job seeker, self-employed

If you do not have the diploma required to integrate the training, you can undertake a validation of personal and professional achievements (VAPP)

You can also consult the prices applying to the public of the continuing education (link :
