Program description

Technology can only be applied in the clinical environment if there are engineers who can interpret, develop and apply them in a patient-focused way. Then hospitals are linked to research programs.

The Medical Engineering program follows the rapid developments in the field of (bio)medical technology, and you will learn to translate these to the needs of clinical practice. During the program you will learn to use models for patient-specific solutions, improving the diagnostic abilities of doctors and enabling them to make a more soundly based choice of treatment. In addition, you will learn to carry out self-reliant clinical research and gain insight into the healthcare system.

Medical Engineering Curriculum

The Medical Engineering master's degree program can be completed in two years. Students must complete 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits each year. The program consists of elective courses, clinical modules, an external internship and a final project.

This program has a wide range of elective courses. Examples include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiotherapy
  • Cardiology
  • Clinical chemistry

Medical Engineering students have a choice of 3 specializations. 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 

·      Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering 

·      Biomedical Imaging and Modeling 

Within these specializations you will be doing clinical research on the technological aspects of one or more of the following clinical tracks:

  • Radiology
  • Chirurgy
  • Radiotherapy
  • Cardiology
  • Clinical chemistry

Objectives
The Medical Engineering master’s degree program trains you to become a medical engineer who can fulfil an important role in any clinical setting. It would not be possible to use all this state-of-the-art technology in clinical settings without engineers to interpret, develop and apply the new techniques in a patient-oriented manner. Medical engineers are an integral part of medical treatment teams in hospitals and can serve as a link between hospitals, academic researchers and business.

Medical Engineering Career Prospects

Medical Engineering graduates will find employment in a teaching hospital or (regional)hospitals. They are likely to get a responsible position in the decision-making process regarding the diagnosis and treatment of individual patients. Your options also include further training to become a clinical physicist. Another choice could be a position in industry, playing an intermediary role between medical specialists and product developers. The program has been established partly by medical specialists.Therefore it takes place at two locations: the headquarters at TU/e in Eindhoven, and at azM, Maastricht university hospital. So you have contact with the medical specialists and patients right from the start.
