Biomedical Engineering consists of solving problems and projects in medicine and biology, often using Information and Communication Technologies. It covers advanced analysis of data, signals, and medical images, as well as programming languages and computer architectures, including the communications required in hospital information systems or Big Data.


Access to official degrees requires holding a high school diploma or equivalent and passing the exam referred to in Article 42 of the Organic Law 6/2001 of Universities, modified in the Law 4/2007 (12 April), taking into account other mechanisms of access foreseen in existing regulations.


As an entrance profile, the student is recommended to have training and / or good predisposition on the subjects of mathematics and physics, as well as chemistry and biology. In addition, interest and capacity for growth are highly desirable in aspects such as abstraction capacity, interaction with multidisciplinary teams, information and communication technologies, professional responsibility, and individual and group work capacity.


Biomedical Engineering (BI) consists of applying the principles and methods of engineering to the understanding, definition, and resolution of problems in biology and medicine. In this setting, the objective of the program is to promote the advanced and multidisciplinary training in professionals in the analysis and processing of data, signals and medical images for the creation of support systems for diagnosis and decision making in the clinical practice. This program is developed in a highly multidisciplinary environment, combining:

The teaching and research experience. together with resources that the Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC) has in virtue of its wide educational offer in degrees and postgraduates in the framework of the health sciences and engineering.
The clinical, professional and research experience in the biomedical field, provided by the University Hospital Foundation of Alcorcón, the University Hospital of Móstoles, and the University Hospital of Fuenlabrada.
