The Master's programme in Biomedical Engineering offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of a broad range of topics within the field of medical devices (design) and state-of-the-art health technology.Current-day medical practice is increasingly reliant on technology. Just think of imaging the inside of your body using MRI or CT, solving heart problems by inserting artificial valves, or measuring stress to avoid burn-out. Many disciplines are involved in creating these devices: microelectronics, information technology, and mechanical and material engineering. As a biomedical engineer you will have knowledge of all these fields of expertise and be able to apply it to develop new devices – from evermore advanced imaging instruments to scaffolds for tissue engineering, and from sensor systems to new implants and artificial organs. As a rule, you will work with medical doctors, engineers, and biologists in multidisciplinary teams.If you are interested in health technology, the Master's programme Biomedical Engineering offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on a broad-range of topics. You will study topics in the fields of imaging techniques, physiological control engineering, rehabilitation engineering, implant engineering, cell and tissue engineering and infection prevention, as well as aspects of medical ethics and law. You also become well-versed in
