Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth knowledge of the foundations of Tissue Engineering, in relation to artificial human/animal tissue. They will possess skills and abilities that can be applied to the following: (i) the development of advanced therapy protocols; (ii) the generation of medicines for cell therapy, gene therapy and tissue engineering; (iii) the quality control of these medicines for their clinical use; (iv) the elaboration of professional and scientific documents in the field of advanced therapies; and (vi) the participation in health education programmes in this field. Finally, graduates will be capable of elaborating advanced therapy products in industrial and health care contexts.

Competences

Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
