Introduction

ISIFC is an engineering school in Biomedical Engineering with a public and academic status, located at Besancon near Switzerland.

Biomedical Engineering is the art of applying the most advanced sciences and technologies for conception of diagnostic equipment or tools of treatment for assistance (called medical devices) and for developing of information systems.  The aim is to improve the quality of care for patients.

The field of activities of biomedical engineering is very large: concept of devices (scanner, prostheses, dressings …), validation of a device before its introduction to the market, assistance to medical staff and participation in clinical research. Biomedical engineers work in companies of medical devices, or of software for health, or in hospitals and care facilities.

ISIFC forms about 50 engineers per year for the biomedical industry and the health care facilities. This is one of the few engineering schools in Europe specializing in Medical Device. The training of our international master in 2 years is focused on four cultures : technical, medical, regulatory, and international marketing. It focuses on R & D, Regulatory Affairs, Quality, Clinical Investigations, research partnerships and entrepreneurship (with Biotika®). A large part of the training is devoted to internships (in hospital and in companies or in research laboratories)
