This programme combines fundamental concepts and knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to develop innovative technologies, materials, processes, and systems, with the aim of improving healthcare.
Biomedical engineering is often referred to as engineering for a good life. It is a field in which your creativity and problem-solving skills will benefit humanity and make a difference.
The intersection of the natural sciences, medicine, and technology is a dynamic place. This programme combines fundamental concepts and knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine. Based on solid mathematical and physical foundations, useful medical knowledge, and a vibrant engineering spirit, you will learn how to develop sustainable and innovative technologies, materials, and systems that improve healthcare.
Specialisation along three tracks
The first year is a broad compulsory segment, with courses in anatomy and physiology, medical information systems, biomedical signal processing, and signal theory, creating the strong knowledge base required for your further studies.
The second year offers in-depth specialisation along three tracks:
- Biomedical Signals and Instrumentation, an area in which multidimensional signals are used to model and simulate anatomy and physiological process in medicine.
- Medical Imaging, in which advanced technology and theory unveil the inner secrets of humankind.
- Medical Informatics and eHealth, in which you study the acquisition, processing, and utilisation of information to support health-related decision-making.
During the final semester, you will write a thesis within your chosen specialisation, at the department, in a hospital, or at a private company.
Solve biomedical engineering problems
After graduating, you will have the skills required to formulate and solve engineering problems in the biomedical domain, implement and operate processes and systems, and evaluate engineering tools applied in medicine. A considerable number of alumni have used these skills to pursue careers as researchers in industry and academia.
