Enrollment profile

The degree in Biomedical Engineering is designed to be offered to who finished high school with a special preference for natural and exact sciences. In addition of the previous acquired knowledge, it is desirable for the applicants to show some of the following characteristics:

  • Taste for the ordered and systematic observation.
  • Critic spirit.
  • Will of globalization and synthesis.
  • Non dogmatic and open mind.
  • Curiosity for the progress of Science, in any area.
  • Taste for intervention.

Preferable profile is established by the following criteria:

  • Knowledge in: sets, algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, mathematics for calculus, basic knowledge of general culture.
  • Skills: reading and comprehension, capability of abstraction, logical reasoning, analysis and synthesis.
  • Attitudes: Scientific enthusiasm and curiosity, taste for the rigor and precision, critic spirit, interest for team work, taste for invention, creativity and technological interest.
Graduate profile

As it was conceived in the design, the orientation of the program will still be Scientific-Practical focused on competencies, which will be acquired throughout the program. These strategies and actions are sustained since the planning of basic, intermediate and professional knowledge, which directly influence in the different competences the graduate will have. Basically, the graduate profile addresses four groups of specific competences: cognitive, methodological, instrumental and labor-social.

A list of generic competencies is proposed in this document for every graduate of an educational program of engineering at DCI. The list emerged from a selection and analysis of the competencies proposes by the Tuning Project (Tuning Educational Structure [11], 2011), which, same as in the original document, they are divided in instrumental, personal and systematic. The selection consisted in an analysis of the competencies every graduate from an engineering must acquire. These generic competencies are listed next and they are aimed for all the educational programs in the area of Engineering at DCI.


  • Capability of analysis and synthesis.
  • Capability to organize and plan.
  • Oral and written communication in their own language.
  • Knowledge of a foreign language.
  • Knowledge of informatics in the area of study.
  • Capability to manage information.
  • Problem solving.
  • Decision making.


  • Work in a inter and multidisciplinary team.
  • Skills in interpersonal relationships.
  • Capability to communicate with experts from other areas.
  • Recognition to diversity and multiculturality.
  • Critic and auto critic reasoning.
  • Ethical commitment.
  • Research capability.


  • Capability to apply the knowledge in the practice.
  • Autonomous learning and permanent updating.
  • Adapting to new situations.
  • Skills to work autonomously.
  • Creativity.
  • Leadership.
  • Knowledge of other cultures and customs.
  • Initiative and entrepreneur spirit.
  • Motivation for quality.
  • Sensitivity towards environmental issues.
  • Social responsibility and citizen commitment.
  • Skills to look, process and analyze information from different sources.

Specific competencies


  • Show a comprehension of the basic concepts and fundamental principles of chemical-medical-biological area.
  • Show a comprehension of the basic concepts and fundamental principles of Physics.
  • Show a comprehension of the basic concepts and fundamental principles of engineering in medicine.
  • Seeks, interprets and uses scientific information.
  • Knows and comprehends the conceptual development of the Biomedical Engineering in historical and epistemological terms.

Methodological (systemic & instrumental)

  • Plans, analyzes and solves problems of Biomedical Engineering, both theoretical as experimental, through the use of analytic, experimental and numeric methods.
  • Builds simplified models that describe a complex situation, identifying their essential elements and making the necessary approximations.
  • Verifies and evaluates the adjustment of models to reality, identifying its validity domain.
  • Develops valid arguments in the technological area applied to health, identifying hypothesis and conclusions.
  • Synthetizes particular solutions, extending them to principles, laws or general theories.

Labor & social

  • Participates in professional activities related with high-level technologies, be that in the laboratory or the medical industry.
  • Shows necessary work habits for the development of the profession such as teamwork, scientific rigor, self-learning and persistence.
  • Participates in the elaboration and development of research projects in Biomedical Engineering.
  • Shows willingness to face new problems in other fields, using their skills and specific knowledge.
  • Knows the relevant concepts of the teaching-learning process of Biomedical Engineering, proving willingness to collaborate in the formation of human resources.
