The Master in Medical Device Engineering is a research-oriented program in the medical device field: equipment, software, implanted and connected. The program covers the entire medical device life cycle: development, production, regulatory affairs, commercialization and clinical use. The job opportunities are wide: the students can continue on a PhD, they can work in R&D in big companies or in SMB/SMI in the health industry.

The program starts in September for a duration of 1 year and delivers 60 ECTS credits.

Courses of the Medical Device Engineering master are provided by academics from research laboratories of the Université de Lyon and professionals from the medical device industry.
