The Master's Degree in Biomedical Technologies responds to the need for highly qualified personnel that responds to and drives advances in the health sector. Thus, the students will acquire in-depth engineering knowledge applied to the field of biomedicine, training experts who are capable of innovating, designing, developing, evaluating and maintaining various medical diagnostic and/or treatment devices.
Targeted at university graduates in Biomedical Engineering. With training complements: other engineering degrees.
1 year of classes and 6 months of internships with a scholarship of €600/month
Master’s Degree classes by professionals and cutting-edge experts in the biomedical field
You will be able to carry out the End-of-Master’s Project in a company of the sector, such as KIRO Grifols, Fagor Healthcare, Bexen Medical, Mizar, Ulma, Microliquid, Tecnalia, Vicomtech, etc.
The knowledge and competences acquired in the Master’s Degree in Biomedical Technologies are applicable to a wide range of treatment and/or diagnostic devices. In these areas of application, students who obtain this degree can perform the following activities, among others:
- Preparing, managing and directing Biomedical Engineering projects, from the detection of opportunities to their implementation in the market.
- Designing, developing and implementing products, equipment, processes and services in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
- Managing the installation and maintenance of both medical equipment and hospital facilities.
- Managing and guaranteeing the quality of products, equipment, processes and services in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
- Marketing Biomedical Engineering products, equipment, processes, and services.
- Training people from different fields while transmitting Biomedical Engineering knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
Thus, these qualified people have a wide range of professional opportunities, which include:

Television report about the employment possibilities for the Master's in Biomedical Technologies
Journalists and editors of the Teknopolis television programme visited students who had graduated with this master's degree to find out what Basque technology companies are working on in the Bio sector
- Erik Isusquiza is working at ULMA developing an innovative portable solution for carrying out retinographies in primary care. The device designed contains software based on artificial intelligence and allows simple and automatic detection of various types of injuries of the retina in its initial stages. The flexible and portable solution that they provide speeds up the process of detection of injuries and allow mass screening of the population to be carried out.
- The Cybersurgery company for which Elene Beitia works is developing a surgical assistant for operations on the spinal column. This robot allows the surgeon to carry out more precise work and a minimally invasive operation for the patient. Elena is responsible for carrying out the computer simulations and for the regulations on electronic devices in the laboratories.
- Antxon Arregi works at the Kiro-Griffols company and he carries out implementation and fine tuning of robots in hospital pharmacies. The robots are responsible for precision dispensing of cancer treatments, minimising as far as possible the errors and risks to which workers in this section were exposed.
