Biological Engineering (GB)

UTC’s Dept. of Bio-Engineering aims at combining engineering and life sciences via high level courses, pluridisciplinary basic and applied research, strong responses to expectations expressed by Society and Industry. The future graduate will acquire skills and knowledge in biology, computer science, physics, mechanical and chemical engineering …

Departmental specialty streams

There are 4 elective specialty streams:

Departmental research

UTC's Bio-engineering Dept. is associated with a very active research programme, thanks to:

  • Two joint UTC / CNRS laboratories:

Biomechanics and Bio-Engineering (UTC-BMBI) - UMR CNRS 7338 where pluridisciplinary research focuses on studies and development of artificial organs and biomaterials and of the musculo-skeleton system.

Enzyme and Cell Engineering (UTC-GEC) - FRE UTC-CNRS 3580 where the research focuses on bio-catalysts at molecular, supramolecular and cellular levels.

Partnerships and valorisation

UTC's research is valorised thanks to private sector industrial partnerships (Total, Decathlon, Fresenius Medical Care, Novance, L'Oréal, Gambro, Styker, Kodak, ...), to public research establishments (numerous teaching hospitals CHU, plus the INSERM, CNES, Cancer-League, AF, ...) and through application of a strong policy of patenting and enterprise creations (Bio-2M, PolyIntell, BioParHom, ...)

Further Education

Over and above the engineering diploma courses, the UTC-GB Dept. also offers:

  • Biomedical hospital engineers (French Mastère diploma -IBMH Bac.+6)
  • PhDs in the fields: in Biomechanical, Bio-engineering and Bio-Materials (GB-3B) and in Biotechnologies.

› Other short courses, with or without a diploma award, are offered in the UTC continuous education scheme.
