With a growing need for improvement in the quality of life, and global average life expectancy rapidly rising, there is an increasing demand for efficient health care systems. Combining the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological science, biomedical engineering improves health care delivery and medical practice by closing the gap between engineering and medicine. Together with advancements within IT, a new world of possibilities in how health care can be improved and delivered is evolving.
The overall aim of the programme is to provide an internationally competitive education, and to prepare you for a professional career, by providing in-depth knowledge in biomedical engineering. The programme prepares you for using engineering skills to improve health care delivery and medical practice. Even if the focus is on biomedical engineering, you will also acquire a good platform for working in related engineering disciplines.
The future of health care will simply require technical expertise. Examples of research areas and applications where biomedical engineering is needed are for example stroke detection and brain monitoring in neuro intensive care using microwave technology. Another example is microwave tomography for 3D breast tumor detection and visualization and microwave hypothermia for treating head and neck cancer. Furthermore, clothing incorporated textile-based sensors are used to record electrical activity from the heart, brain, or muscles, for monitoring in homecare and other distance settings. An area also in need of biomedical engineers is Health Informatics, where health care practice is supported by electronic processes and communication.
The compulsory part of the programme provides a common platform within biomedical engineering. Through internationally recognized researchers, projects, guest lectures and a tight collaboration with industry, you will be part of a highly prominent research environment. For you to gain the required proficiency and depth in the area for a Master’s degree, a number of elective courses are offered.
Depending on how you select and combine your courses, you can pursue a specialization of your interest and tailor your education towards a certain application area. To guide you through the selection of courses, the programme offers six suggested specialization tracks within: Image, Health Informatics, Signals and control, Automotive, Biomaterial, and Biotechnical Physics. You can find an overview of the programme and the specialization tracks further down on this page.
In general, the educational methods have specific emphasis on building and refining problem-solving skills, team work, and presentation skills. In the programme, you also get the opportunity to interact with health care representatives via guest lectures and study visits. The Master’s thesis gives you training in individual research, project planning, documentation and presentation.
