Study choice guide: Clinical Technology is top programme

News - 04 December 2023 - Webredactie 3mE

In the Keuzegids Universities 2024, the bachelor's programme Clinical Technology has been labelled top programme for the second time. This study programme is a collaboration between TU Delft, LUMC and Erasmus MC.

The Clinical Technology programme scored 80 points in the latest Keuzegids, a nice improvement on last year. The Keuzegids shows that Clinical Technology students more frequently graduate without study delays, compared to the national average. In addition, lecturers, career preparation and the atmosphere within the programme also score well.

Director of Studies of Clinical Technology, John van den Dobbelsteen, is proud of this achievement. "This label is a wonderful compliment for the study programme but also for the students themselves. This is a group of students who are highly motivated and work in close collaboration with each other, the lecturers and the study association Variscopic to achieve a good learning climate." The positive assessment on career preparation is a big boost, according to Van den Dobbelsteen. "Clinical Technology is still relatively new and thus the number of role models is limited. So it is important for students to build a picture of their opportunities in the work field during their studies."

Clinical Technology

This programme focuses on technological innovation in medicine. Students learn to analyse the human body and diseases, but with an engineer's eye. They learn how to develop and apply complex technologies for diagnostics and treatments.

The Keuzegids is an independent consumer guide that compares all (undergraduate) programmes in the Netherlands. According to the Keuzegids' definition, a top study programme is one with a final assessment of 75 points or more. The scores are based in part on student opinions from the National Student Survey, which students complete annually. In 2023, the survey was completed by over 289,000 students.
