Specialty - Biomechanics and Bio-Materials (GB-BB)


The specialty GB-BB focuses on materials used in medicine, surgery and prosthetics, with the first two semesters devoted to acquiring a general background opening the way to "bio-mechanics" and "bio-materials".


The focus is on applied research running, for example, from tissue repair techniques to new orthopaedic prosthetics.

Placements and industrial relations

GB-BB students spend 6 months on placements and 6 months project work in an industrial milieu.

Among the placement: design and mechanical failure assessments for hip prosthetics for the Asian markets; drafting of regulatory texts for a new silicone impregnated bandage; human skin modelling and toxicity tests for new medicinal molecules.

Professional openings

50 % of the job openings stem from project work, often in major groups (Medtronic, Sarin, St Jude Medical, Stryker, Decathlon, ...), SMEs and research institutions (CNRS, INSERM, Universities) and elsewhere: in R&D, clinical trials, QA, marketing ...

Add-on training modules

UTC also offers:

  • a Master 2 " Quality Assessment and Regulations for Medical Equipment"
  • a PhD in "Biomechanics, Bio-engineering and Bio-Materials "

› The above courses and other, shorter modules whether leading to a diploma award or not, can be obtained in the UTC Continuous Education scheme or via the Professional experience validation scheme (VAE).
