Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Health care, social services and care services
Course summary Today's technology has become an essential part of modern healthcare. We use physics, chemistry, mathematics and electrical engineering, together with a medical and biological understanding.
Course description The program in Biomedical Engineering aims to train engineers who are able to organize and carry out both fundamental and applied research in the field of biomedical engineering. This relatively new engineering discipline is based on integrating technological and life sciences, and allows you to specialize in a number of different directions. The subject matter is complex, and the focal areas involved include innovation and development. The program is research-driven and design-oriented. Most of the courses have a biomedical and technical orientation. As a biomedical engineer you will be able to work in a number of different disciplines within the overall field of biomedical engineering, for example as a developer or designer of products or services based on medical technology for trade and industry. It is also possible to follow a program for clinical physicists after your master's, although this means that you will have to take specific elective courses during your master's program. The program is research-driven, and as a student your academic training is based on intensive involvement in research.
Study subjects Within the master's program you can choose between the free profile and the research profile. The free profile contains a larger amount of elective courses, where in the research profile this time is used for your graduation project.
