Program description

Today's technology has become an essential part of modern healthcare. We use physics and chemistry, mathematics and electrical engineering, together with a medical and biological understanding.

The program in Biomedical Engineering aims to train engineers who are able to organize and carry out both fundamental and applied research in the field of biomedical engineering. This relatively new engineering discipline is based on integrating technological and life sciences, and allows you to specialize in a number of different directions. The subject matter is complex, and the focal areas involved include innovation and development. The program is research-driven and design-oriented.

Although most of the courses have a biomedical and technical orientation. As a biomedical engineer you will be able to work in a number of different disciplines within the overall field of biomedical engineering, for example as a developer or designer of products or services based on medical technology for trade and industry. It is also possible to follow a program for clinical physicists after your master's, although this means that you will have to take specific elective courses during your Master's program. The program is research-driven, and as a student your academic training is based on intensive involvement in research.

Main specializations: - Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering - Molecular Bioengineering and Molecular Imaging - Biomedical Imaging and Modeling.

Being able to organize and carry out both fundamental and applied research in the field of biomedical engineering.

Biomedical Engineering Specializations

There are several specialization options under the Master in Biomedical Engineering. The specializations, or tracks, are grouped into three categories, though combinations are also always possible. Some of the more fascinating topics are often to be found right at the intersection between categories.

The three specializations are:

Molecular Bioengineering and Molecular Imaging
In the Molecular Bioengineering and Molecular Imaging specialization we approach biomedical problems from a molecular perspective. Researchers simulate extant biological systems, so as to build upon them and develop new materials with new functions or properties. Another category of research involves decoding the molecular mechanisms behind such diseases as Alzheimer's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob. 

Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering
The Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering specialization, we apply the basic principles of fluid dynamics, mechanics and biology to the study of biomedical problems and systems. In particular, we research the biomechanics of the pathology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease. This includes the disorders of the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. Our research is model-based and occasionally patient-specific.

Biomedical Imaging and Modeling
The Biomedical Imaging and Modeling specialization combines methods and techniques from mathematics, information science, physics, electrical engineering and medical science to create images of, analyze and model biomedical systems.
