The BME-Paris Master is designed to provide a 2-year education program in the field of bioengineering, at the cross-road of biomedical and engineering sciences. It results from a partnership between Université Paris Descartes, Arts-et-Métiers ParisTech and Université PSL.

Based on this unique partnership, this Master is founded on an educational policy that favors interdisciplinarity and students’ initiative as well as international perspective. This policy is supported by the top-level and complementary expertise and know-how of the three partners: engineering sciences in the three engineering schools within PSL (ESPCI Paris, Mines ParisTech and Chimie ParisTech) and Arts-et-Métiers ParisTech, on the one hand, and biomedical and health sciences at Université Paris Descartes, on the other. 
Teaching faculty is mostly from the partner institutions. Guest lecturers include hospital clinicians (AP-HP), and researchers from other schools and universities as well as from private companies (e.g. GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Renault, Sanofi, Thalès, Materialise Medical, …).

Learning outcomes

The BME-Paris Master proposes a program of excellence intended for students with a wide variety of backgrounds (biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering as well as medicine, pharmacy and other health sciences…).

The overarching goals of the Master are:

  • to provide students with the knowledge and tools required in a wide range of the biomedical engineering fields;
  • to foster a fruitful collaborative spirit between engineering and medical students, that will eventually bridge the existing « culture gap » between the corresponding professions. 

While the second year (M2) offers five specialization tracks, the first year (M1) is devoted to strengthening and broadening students’ skills in specific engineering and biomedical subjects. Students are advised in their individual choices of teaching units, to bring them up to date on the fundamental science subjects they may not have acquired through their previous studies (eg physiology and anatomy for engineering students, or signal processing and mechanics for biology or medical students).

Biomaterials and Biodevices (BioMAT) is one of the 5 M2 proposed tracks.

the field of prosthetics design. Remarkable opportunities for the biomedical field have emerged from the recent progress in the understanding, characterization, and manipulation of biological materials. Design, control, and modelling of biological, bio-sourced, biocompatible, and biomimetic materials are central to numerous biomedical innovations ranging from therapeutic approaches in the field of regenerative medicine to industrial processes.

The BioMAT track provides scientists, engineers, and medical students with the wherewithal to face the numerous challenges of biomaterials R&D; how to apply their skills in order to solve specific biomedical problems, how to carry out innovative and fruitful research with the appropriate methods and ethical considerations, how to collaborate and interact in projects at the interface among materials, biomedical science, and medicine. It is accessible to engineering and life-science students (materials science, physics, chemistry, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and biology) preparing for career paths in academic research or industrial R&D environments.

The program provides students in-depth knowledge of the understanding and use of biomaterials, from nanoscale biomolecules, such as proteins, lipids, and synthetic polymers to macroscale prostheses, orthesis, and implants. This education relies on a rich combination of high-level lectures, conferences and exchanges with invited experts and interdisciplinary group projects. From all these experiences, the students will learn how to apply their skills on health-related applications ranging from implant and tissue engineering through the modelling and characterization of biological materials to material design for therapeutics.
