MSc Biomedical Engineering
About This Masters Degree
Biomedical engineering is, by nature, an interdisciplinary field. New advances require a variety of experimental and conceptual approaches. A large part of the scientific work at Reykjavik University, in biomedical engineering, is focused on specific clinical problems and aims to improve clinical outcomes. Our faculty members are involved in research and development projects in the fields of bioinformatics, signal processing, biomechanics, neuroscience, clinical engineering and tissue engineering.
A BSc degree in Engineering is required.Applicants must also fulfill minimum requirements in applied sciences (i.e. mathematics, physics, and bio-sciences) and in basic subjects fundamental to Biomedical Engineering (i.e. physiology, bio-signals and clinical applications, or other core topics in biomedical engineering). Students admitted to the MSc-programme that do not fulfill these minimum requirements are required to take appropriate fundamental courses in biomedical engineering.
