In MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate and MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online, you will examine the distribution and determinants of health and morbidity in specific populations. With evidence-based medicine setting new standards, there is a growing need/demand for specialists working on the design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation of epidemiological and health research. This scientific discipline is increasingly in demand in clinical research (human, pharmaceutical, and veterinary), industry, and policy making.

Epidemiology Postgraduate is offered in two variants:
- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate:

- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online:

The difference between both master's programmes is the learning method. The course content of the face-to-face programme (Epidemiology Postgraduate) is identical to the online programme (Epidemiology Postgraduate Online). All courses within Epidemiology Postgraduate Online are offered by the platform of Elevate Health.

Please note this Master’s programme is not state funded. This means that the programme has a total tuition fee of € 18,182 for EU students and a total fee of € 27,000 for non-EU students.
For the online Master's programme Elevate Health offers scholarships for talented and motivated students. Please contact to find out if you are eligible for such a scholarship.

Programme objective
In both variants of the Epidemiology Postgraduate programme you will learn to operate as an epidemiologist and clinical researcher.
The program consists of core courses (20 EC), specialization courses (14 EC), and a research project (56 EC).

- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate: In this programme, you will spend about six months completing compulsory theoretical courses, the core courses. You will spend 13 EC (face-to-face programme) or 14 EC (online programme) to the specialization courses. Research Project (56 EC).You are required to complete a research project during your studies.

- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online: In the online variant you choose between specializations in Clinical Epidemiology, Veterinary Epidemiology and General Epidemiology. The research project can be conducted at your own location in cooperation with one of the participating institutes and supervised by a faculty staff member from Utrecht University.

The programme is taught by internationally renowned lecturers such as professors Rick Grobbee, MD PhD FESC and Arno Hoes, MD PhD, both famous within the field of epidemiology. Our online programme gives you maximal flexibility and time-efficiency to learn at the time and location most convenient to you, what makes this programme very practical in combination with a career. Utrecht University and the University Medical Center Utrecht have an outstanding academic reputation and are reputable partners that Elevate Health is proud to work with. MSc Epidemiology, the regular, 2 years face-to-face master programme is evaluated as #1 Master's programme in the Dutch Master's Selection Guide 2015!

Sensors affect and benefit the lives of billions of people world-wide. Healthcare is one of the main areas where the innovative applications of sensors becomes increasingly important. Quite a promising prospect for you as a future sensor specialist, with expertise in said area.

Honours

Like our bachelor's programmes, the Sensor System Engineering master's is recognised as an honours programme, offering a challenging schedule to students. This means 10 ECs are added to the regular 60 ECs master's programme. We strive for students who are passionate about technology and committed to their own personal development. We select students who have an entrepreneurial style and who consider themselves to be world citizens. You will be expected to show creativity and the drive to discover new solutions by yourself. Naturally, you will be supported by the lecturing staff, as well as experts from industry, health and applied research.

Career perspectives

As a Master of Engineering you will qualify for a variety of jobs in the following domains. You can make a career in the health domain, developing products and services that involve sensor innovations for medical devices, domotics and home care. Another promising career move is to apply for a job in the technology domain, where you will develop technical sensor applications. A scientific research environment is another great place for you as a master. Here you will work alongside scientists who are focused on high tech research projects as genome sequencing or seismic monitoring systems.

Diploma

SSE is in the formal process of becoming an NVAO accredited HBO Master's Programme. After graduation you will receive a Master of Engineering diploma. The honours module is mentioned in the diploma and the diploma supplement. More info about the difference between a degree from a university of applied sciences (HBO) – higher professional education – and a research university (WO) can be found at government.nl (international students) or rijksoverheid.nl (Dutch students).
