MSc Biomedical Engineering offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth information on a broad-range of topics within health care and technology, while working with state-of-the-art medical facilities.
Current-day medical practice relies increasingly on technology. You can think of imaging the inside of your body with MRI or CT, solving heart problems by placing artificial valves, or measuring stress to avoid a burn-out. Many disciplines are involved to realise these devices: microelectronics, information technology, mechanical and material engineering.
As a biomedical engineer you have knowledge of all these fields of expertise and you apply it to develop new devices; from ever more advanced imaging instruments to scaffolds for tissue engineering; and from sensor systems to new implants and artificial organs. Commonly, you work in multidisciplinary teams with medical doctors, engineers, biologists and of course patients.
If you are interested in health care and technology, the Master's programme Biomedical Engineering offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth information on a broad-range of topics. You will study topics in the fields of imaging techniques, physiological control engineering, rehabilitation engineering, implant engineering, cell and tissue engineering and infection prevention, as well as aspects of medical ethics and law. You also become well-versed in medical and biological basic knowledge.
In addition, the University of Groningen offers you state-of-the-art medical facilities and a unique professional cooperation with the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).
We also offer a European Master in Biomedical Engineering: A joint project between six European universities. Students will start the programme at one of these universities and will spend at least one year at a partner university.
