Medical Engineering at KTH

The master’s programme teaches the advantages and limitations of the current technology underlying clinical applications. Students are given the knowledge base that is necessary for them to improve and develop the medical technology of the future.

One important field that the programme tackles is imaging techniques, such as ultrasound and MRI. Another main area is simulation analysis – the development of software to create virtual environments in order to analyse processes in, for example, healthcare. A third major field is biomedical implants, dealing with the construction of artificial body parts. Patient safety is an essential part of the education, and the safety perspective is present in every course of the programme.

Since the field of Medical Engineering is so wide, students will choose one out of five track based on what technical background they are interested in. Each track contains mandatory, conditionally elective and elective courses. In the final term, each student will complete a degree project. The degree project is a stepping stone to either an academic career or to working in industry, and can be completed at an industrial company, a hospital or at an academic institution in Sweden or abroad. There are also good opportunities to study for a term or to complete the master’s thesis project abroad.

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given at KTH Campus and KTH Flemingsberg in Stockholm by the School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (at KTH).

Topics covered

Medical imaging and image analysis, implants and biomaterials, medical information systems, biomechanics, healthcare logistics, radiation therapy and patient safety.
