Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
Basic competences CB6 Having and understanding the knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context CB7 Students know how to apply their acquired knowledge and problem-solving skills in new or unfamiliar settings within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. CB8 Students are able to integrate knowledge and to face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. CB9 Students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons behind them to specialised and non-specialised audiences in a clear and unambiguous way. CB10 Students have the learning skills that will enable them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous. General competences CG1 Ability to maintain continuous education after his/her graduation, enabling him/her to cope with new technologies. CG2 Ability to apply the knowledge of skills and research methods related to engineering. CG3 Ability to apply the knowledge of research skills and methods related to Life Sciences. CG4 Ability to contribute to the widening of the frontiers of knowledge through an original research, part of which merits publication referenced at an international level. Specific competences CE4 Ability to use techniques for processing massive amounts of medical data and images. CE5 Ability to implement medical imaging and data processing methods.
