In a generic manner, the student must develop the following skills:
CG1, Understand the challenges associated to Materials Science and Engineering in an industrial and research environment
CG2, Know the disciplines appropriated for working in a laboratory of materials and for optimizing the obtaining of results
CG3, Develop team working skills in a research environment
CE1, Discover the latest tendencies in development of new materials and be aware of their potential advantages with respect to more traditional materials
CE2, Be able to design new ways of optimizing the properties of different materials for specific applications, through the modification of their structure and composition.
CE3, Know processing systems and advanced synthesis that allow to obtain materials with improved properties.
CE4 Acquire the ability of contributing to the optimization of processing technology for applications and specific problems.
CE5 Be able to develop creative strategies and decision-making facing problems related to materials, manufacturing and behavior.
Overcoming this matter ensures that students have achieved the following learning outcomes:
To identify the requirements for the selection of materials for biomedical applications.
To be able to identify which materials are most commonly used today and to understand the alternatives that are contemplated at this time to achieve improved properties.
To be familiar with the concepts of biological response and biocompatibility, as well as biocompatibility assays, cytotoxicity and cytocompatibility necessary to assess behavior of biomaterials and biological response.
