The Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma program in Systems and Microsystems for Physics and Biotechnology is now ten years old and ready for an overhaul. Starting this year the program will focus primarily on biomedical engineering, and the 48 students starting the program this fall will all follow the same curriculum—instead of being divided into two tracks like before. The program will eventually be renamed Biomedical Engineering.
All the courses may eventually be given in English and some already are. In the second semester students choose between two majors: Medical Treatment & Imaging and Nanobiology & Medical Systems.
Program graduates typically find jobs at large companies and start-ups, both in France and abroad. Nearly a third of them go on to get a PhD—making them highly coveted by the biomedical industry.
