Healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries across the world. In the West the accent is more on cure and care, in contrast to developing countries, where the accent is on prevention. But whether the emphasis is on cure or prevention, health care professionals rely on increasingly complex equipment in their work. The design of that equipment requires highly trained specialists with expertise in engineering, industrial design and medical sciences. The aim of the specialisation in Medisign is to train these specialists.
To specialise in Medisign you are required to complete at least one project worth 9 EC and a thesis project focusing on Medisign. Additionally, you need to select at least 9 EC from the Medisign electives list. Other projects and modules with a healthcare focus are optional. Students can enrol for this specialisation by sending an email to Ron de Vos.
