Branch: Biomechanics and Rehabilitation
"Mestrado em Tecnologia Biomédica, especialização em Biomecânica e Reabilitação". Title of "Mestre".

Branch: Medical Signals and Instrumentation
"Mestrado em Tecnologia Biomédica, especialização em Instrumentação e Sinais Médicos". Title of "Mestre".

Level of qualification
2nd Cycle of Studies. EQF level 7. ISCED 2011 level 7.

Admission requirements
The holders of the licenciado degree or legal equivalent, the holders of a foreign academic degree and the holders of a relevant academic, scientific or professional curriculum vitae may apply to the 2nd cycle of studies, as stated in the description of the Portuguese Higher Education System, provided by NARIC (http://www.dges.mctes.pt/DGES/pt/Reconhecimento/NARICENIC/) and presented in section 8 of the Diploma Supplement.

Recognition of prior learning
Following the implementation of the Bologna Process and the consequent legislation regarding the mobility of students among degrees and higher education institutions, prior learning must be recognized and credited. The prior learning concept comprises all the previous learning/training undertaken in other higher education study cycles in national or international institutions (crediting of certified training), as well as previous professional experience and any post-secondary school training or education. As such, the IPB promotes the crediting of the student’s prior learning when arriving at the institution.
Aiming at a quick and full integration of the student in his/her new education programme, the recognition procedures must be submitted when enrolling at the IPB.
For further enquiries on crediting and recognizing prior learning and training at the IPB (calendars, procedures and assessment criteria), please go to the Applicant Portal at www.ipb.pt/portaldocandidato.

Key learning outcomes
Branch: Biomechanics and Rehabilitation
The degree of "mestre" (master) in Biomedical Technology, specialization in Biomechanics and Rehabilitation, is awarded to those students that demonstrate, in this field, the ability to:
a) develop and enhance the knowledge obtained in the first cycle, in order to develop and apply that knowledge to original situations often in the context of research;
b) apply their knowledge and understanding and problem solving capacities to new and unfamiliar situations in wide multidisciplinary situations, although related to their area of studies;
c) integrate knowledge, deal with complex matters, develop solutions or put forward opinions on situations of limited or incomplete information, including reflecting upon the implications and ethical and social responsibilities that result from both those solutions and opinions or indeed that condition them;
d) communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and reasoning that underly them, both to experts and non-experts, clearly and unambiguously;
e) develop competences that will enable them to benefit from self-oriented or autonomous lifelong learning.

To complete the qualification, the student is required to pass all compulsory course units of the study plan.
