The interaction between the human organism, technical equipment, and methods is essential to biomedical engineering.
We are becoming increasingly dependent on advanced equipment for patient diagnosis and treatment—e.g. large CT scanners, PET scanners for studying molecular processes in cancer, as well as pacemakers and DNA chips for studying the genome.
Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme offered by DTU in collaboration with the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.
The study programme aims to provide MSc students with proper knowledge of the clinical problems facing the modern healthcare sector, enabling them to develop new technological solutions. Therefore, the study programme covers both engineering and human physiology courses, ranging from the functions of the organs at cell level to modelling physiological processes in the locomotive apparatus.
The Biomedical Engineering programme offers research-based teaching and the opportunity to specialize in a number of focus areas:
- Medical Imaging & Radiation Physics
- Biomedical Signal Processing & Bioinstrumentation
- Biomodelling, Cellular Signalling & Transport Phenomena
- Biomechanics & Biomaterials
The scientific environment includes many internationally reputed research groups within Ultrasound Imaging, Magnetic Resonance (MR), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Biomechanics, Hearing aids, Image interpretation, Biomedical Signal Processing (BSP), Brain Computer Interface (BCI), Cellular Signalling (CS) etc.
The open and informal environment makes it easy to find an interesting subject/topic for the MSc thesis and a chance to participate in world class research.
However, the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a certain degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU and the University of Copenhagen.

Biomedical Engineering is a highly specialized study programme. Programme graduates work on finding high-tech solutions to problems, particularly in the healthcare sector.

Additional requirements for all applicants (except BSc in Biomedical Engineering from DTU/KU)
The MSc Eng programme in Biomedical Engineering requires a sound knowledge of mathematics, physics, human biology and diseases as well as a range of specialization areas within biomedical engineering.
Applicants are therefore expected to review the contents of the mandatory courses and the desired technological specialization courses in the MSc Eng programme and make sure that the necessary requirements are met, or will be, in good time before starting the programme.
The applicants are expected to be able to understand and learn new programming languages without teaching assistance.
Applicants are also recommended to have passed a bachelor project within the biomedical engineering field.
When applying, the applicants should
- include a motivational letter of maximally one A4 sheet and
- specify how the course requirements listed in this document are met and
- specify their planned area of specialization and give an account of how their bachelor exam may qualify them for this area of specialization.
All documents must be in pdf-format.
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
