  • Programme Description

    Programme Description

    The "Re-education and Medical Engineering" (RIM) major of UPMC´s Master of Science and Technology, formerly "Re-education, Re-adaptation, Rehabilitation" offering three specializations, was expanded at the start of the 2009 academic year with a fourth specialization which covers the field of medical engineering.

    Consequently, the RIM Master´s has two complementary goals:

    * to train new health professionals who are able to master and develop common interdisciplinary concepts. The major intends to meet a strong demand from students and young professionals who wish to participate in the scientific development of their field, to gain new cross-cutting skills and to innovate.
    * to make the medical disciplines and engineering converge, giving students a double expertise and the possibility to contribute to the development of the medical technology of the future.

    The Master´s degree leads to careers in teaching, management and technical applications in the health sector, and the following professions in particular:
