The MSc programme in Advanced Materials and Healthcare Engineering focuses on design and fabrication of advanced materials for applications within the healthcare sector.
The study programme of Advanced Materials and Healthcare Engineering has the focus on design and fabrication of advanced materials for applications in the healthcare sector, especially materials for drug delivery, diagnostics, and healthcare products. Such advanced materials often consist of a material with a primary function (like carrying a drug or sensing a compound), which is decorated with specific biomolecules for increased functionality.
The healthcare sector is central for supporting a high quality of life of the individual. The healthcare sector has however a large demand on improvements in diagnostics and treatment at a cost that is sustainable for society. The study programme aims to create candidates with high theoretical and practical competences to create products for these areas.
DTU has a growing and strong activity in research in materials for drug delivery, diagnostics, and healthcare products. Examples of competencies include advanced nano particles decorated with molecules or structures for homing to the right tissue and passage over barriers, engineered immune system responses, advanced in vitro models for replacing animal in drug testing, human and animal testing of advanced materials, and highly sensitive sensor systems for distributed molecular diagnostics. The students will be part of this growing field of research at DTU.
Study programme focus
The study programme will give candidates competencies to work in the healthcare engineering field. The programme focuses are on
- the design of materials with specific functions for products used in the healthcare sector
- analysis of, and finding solution to, real world industrial medical needs and products
- methods of evaluating impact and function of advanced materials on cells, tissue, and humans
- choosing instrumentation and analytical techniques for characterizing medical and medicotechnical products
- methods for product validation including usage of statistics and experimental design
Beyond the mandatory courses establishing the core profile of the study programme, students can choose to pursue one of three specializations within the study programme. The chosen specialization will be stated on the diploma. Each specialization includes a number of courses from which the student can choose a subset to match their particular interests. The three study lines are
- Drug delivery systems engineering
- Healthcare materials engineering
- Diagnostic technology engineering
It is not mandatory to pursue one of the three specializations. Thus, each student has every opportunity to design their own study programme by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.

General admission requirements
Only applicants holding either a relevant Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a Master of Science in Engineering programme. The bachelor degree must be less than 10 years old.
The individual MSc Eng programme states in detail which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to complete supplementary educational activities.
Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes.
The specific requirements must be met before graduating from the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. The courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies within one year from the conditional admission.
Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are charged. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn.
The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).
DTU offers Honours Programme as part of all MSc Eng. programmes. The admission requirements are described at http://www.dtu.dk/english/education/msc/honours-programmes
