Biomedical Engineering

Course Description

Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Biomedical Engineering
Teaching language: English

Biomedical Engineering encompasses fundamental concepts in engineering, biology and medicine to develop innovative approaches and new devices, materials, implants, algorithms, processes and systems for the medical industry. These could be used for the assessment and evaluation of technology; for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases; for patient care and rehabilitation and for improving medical practice and health care delivery.

The first year of the Biomedical Engineering programme is focused on mandatory courses expanding students’ engineering skills and knowledge in areas like anatomy and physiology but also biology and biochemistry. Courses in mathematics, statistics, multidimensional biomedical signal generation and analysis, combined with medical informatics and biomedical modelling and simulation, create a solid foundation for the continuation of the programme.

In the second year, three areas of specialisation, medical informatics, medical imaging and bioengineering, are introduced. Coinciding with the specialisation, a course in philosophy of science is mandatory, preparing and supporting the onset of the degree project.
A graduate of the Biomedical Engineering programme should be able to:

• formulate and solve engineering problems in the biomedical domain, encompassing the design of devices, algorithms, systems, and processes to improve human health and integrating a thorough understanding of the life sciences.
• use, propose and evaluate engineering tools and approaches.
• identify and manage the particular problems related to the acquisition, processing and interpretation of biomedical signals and images.
• integrate engineering and life science knowledge, using modelling and simulation techniques.
• communicate engineering problems in the life science domain.

The Biomedical Engineering curriculum supports and sustains "Engineering for Health" through a relevant mixture of mandatory and elective courses. This enables both broad-based and in-depth studies, which emphasises the importance of multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches to real-world engineering problems in biology and medicine.
