BioMechanical Engineering carries out the core of two Master Programs and will host a third Masters program in the near future:
MSc BioMedical Engineering (BME)
A multi-disciplinary program with a clinical focus.
With five specialisations:
- Medical Instruments and Medical Safety
- Biomaterials and Tissue Biomechanics
- Medical Physics
- Biomedical Electronics
MSc Technical Medicine
The three-year master's Technical Medicine is the intended follow up-Master of the BSc Clinical Technology and will be started in the near future. Read about it's plans here.
MSc Mechanical Engineering (ME) » Track BioMechanical Design (ME-BMD)
Where humans and machines intersect, BioMechanical Design provides solutions that allow the biological and mechanical systems to function effectively together. Accordingly, one facet of BioMechanical Design is to investigate human movement, human perception, and human control characteristics. Another facet is to design user-friendly, intuitive technologies based on an understanding of these characteristics. The knowledge of human behaviour acquired in the field of BioMechanical Design can be used to diagnose diseases, but can also serve as input for the design and development of systems that interact with biological systems or that mimic biological systems.
Students will receive and advanced education in the design and engineering of robotic devices, mechatronic design, control engineering and biological principles.
The track has four specialisations:
- Bio-Inspired Technology
- Haptic Interfaces
- Sports Engineering
