“Understand how digital technologies play a role in improving health. Putting the user and their unique characteristics at the center of solution designers’ concerns.”

Frédéric RAVAUT

Head of the Health & Technology Major

Health and Technology Major

Understand the issues and participate in the health care of tomorrow

Presentation of the Engineering Cycle Health and Technology Major

The Health & Technology Major aims to present the applications of engineering training in professions closely or distantly related to health. It provides the knowledge and medical vocabulary necessary for communication between the engineer, the patient and the health professionals, and enables the creation of a network of contacts in this sector of activity.

The Health & Technology Major puts the engineer in a situation to better understand the disease or disability and to place the end user at the center of the designer’s concerns.

It helps to understand the complexity of health systems on a national and international scale, both in terms of the coverage of healthcare costs and the exchange of information, regulations, the marketing of medical devices, security and standards applicable to information systems as well as to connected objects which today invade the patient’s daily life and play a major role in his follow-up.

The objectives of the Engineering Cycle Health and Technology Major

Understand the user’s need

Putting the end user at the center of solution development

Work in collaboration with health professionals while learning to manage teams and projects

Develop innovative solutions that improve the quality of care and patient management

The head of the Major – Frédéric RAVAUT

Doctorate in computer science from the University of Paris 5 (René Descartes) in 1999. Mr Ravaut then studied the numerical treatment of the couple
“Seizure video/electroencephalogram (EEG)” in the context of childhood epilepsy.
Today, he devotes his research to unconventional human/machine interfaces and more specifically to the thought-based control of machines.
