EFMD Equis Accredited

Its international orientation is one of the distinguishing features of UPF, a university with "its feet in Barcelona and its head in the world".

This international projection has been recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education through the International Campus of Excellence seal (2010) and is backed up by the UPF's distinguished position in international rankings as one of the top Spanish universities.

The International Community

With the highest percentage of international faculty in Spain and one of the most international in Europe, every year UPF also hosts a high number of international students. In the 2013-14 Academic Year, for instance, international students represented 36% of all Master's students and 52% of all Doctoral students, attracted by the opportunity to study and carry out research with internationally renowned faculty and researchers.

A Global Network

It is precisely these international links and projects with the best universities in the world that constitute one of Pompeu Fabra University's most important assets. At present, UPF has collaboration agreements with 40 universities ranked among the world's Top 100 according to the Times Higher Education 2012-13 ranking.

This selection allows us to develop outstanding projects such as the Global Cities programme, an International Summer School run in conjunction with the University of California, Los Angeles, or double and joint degree programmes on the post-graduate level.

Mobility

Through an extensive, select network of exchange agreements with over 250 universities, Pompeu Fabra University's mobility programmes enrich the campus with 1,529 students from 40 different countries (2012-13 Academic Year) and have allowed 30% of UPF graduates to effect an exchange abroad as a differentiating factor on their résumés.

Master in Biomedical Research

The master's program in Biomedical Research is focused on the study of the molecular, cellular, physiological and evolutionary foundations of biological processes and their pathological or adaptive alterations. It is primarily, although not exclusively, aimed at students seeking to pursue doctoral studies in different areas of biomedicine.

Objectives

The program's main objective is to help students acquire advanced conceptual and experimental knowledge of the molecular and cellular foundations for cellular processes and dysfunctions involved in physiological function and disease and to teach them to apply this knowledge to basic and biomedical research....

Presentation

We welcome you to the pages of our master on Computational Biomedical Engineering. This one-year research master is offered by the Department of Information and Communication Technologies and the Department of Experimental and Health Science of the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona.

Why does our modern society need biomedical engineers?

The European Union framework programme for research and innovation has identified eight societal challenges. The first challenge is 'health, demographic change, and wellbeing'. To cope with this challenge requires progress in fields such as medicine, biology, engineering, physics, information technologies, applied mathematics, to name only a few. However, to go beyond progress in individual scientific disciplines we need a solid interface that connects these fields and that grows along with their fast advance. This multidisciplinary interface is constructed by biomedical engineers.... [-]
