Are there friendlier, less painful or less harmful methods to detect breast cancer? Can you pave the way for animal-free drug testing by developing mini organs-on-a-chip that can mimic an actual human organ? And what about detecting complex diseases like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s at an early stage, or developing an exoskeleton to train paralysed patients to walk?

This Master’s teaches you to research, design and develop medical innovations that contribute to better healthcare – think of the improvement of diagnostics, treatment or rehabilitation, but also prevention and better quality of life. You will combine engineering skills in disciplines such as chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, electrical engineering and/or mechanical engineering with in-depth knowledge of biology and medicine. After graduation, you can find a job widely throughout the health technology and healthcare industry. You could join an R&D department, work as a product specialist or opt for a career as a researcher.
