Departament de Ciències Bàsiques (Biomedicina, Bioenginyeria, Psicologia)


Una universitat és coneixement, recerca i transferència. A UIC Barcelona dediquem el temps i l’esforç a aprendre amb l’objectiu de canviar el món. L’humanisme cristià ens inspira per cercar la veritat, i ho fem a través de la recerca en totes les àrees del saber. Promovem el coneixement que ens acosta al perquè més íntim de les coses. La recerca és un dels eixos prioritaris en l’activitat dels docents: dediquen el seu temps a la recerca i a formar persones lliures, amb criteri, capaces de produir noves idees i utilitzar les principals fonts de coneixement: l’observació, l’experimentació, la raó inductiva i la deductiva. Aquest és l’esperit investigador de UIC Barcelona.
