For whom?

The minor is open for students from all technical disciplines. Basic knowledge of mechanics and Matlab is recommended.

What will you learn

The minor discusses biomedical technologies with a focus on:

  • the human musculo-skeletal system
  • minimally invasive techniques
  • imaging techniques, e.g. X-ray, CT, MRI, and Ultrasound

Guest lectures by physicians provide a strong focus on the medical discipline. Recent developments will be discussed based on research within the Medical Delta, a cooperation between the Delft University of Technology, the Leiden University Medical Center, and the Erasmus Medical Center.
