MSc BioMedical Engineering
As medical science has advanced, physicians and patients have relied on increasingly sophisticated medical devices for diagnosis, treatment, and long-term health care. BioMedical engineers are key players in the development, design, and continuing refinement of devices such as joint replacement prostheses, microsensors, imaging and image processing, as well as advanced instruments for use in such domains as minimally invasive surgery and the diagnosis of movement disorders.
What you will learn
The TU Delft master's programme in BioMedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary programme which aims to provide you with both an understanding of biology and medical theory as well as highly specialised technical training in such fields as electrical, physics, material and mechanical engineering.
You will learn how to develop conceptual models from a technical perspective and you will work in close collaboration with physicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals, including on-site at the collaborating academic institutions.
Learning from 3 faculties and 2 medical centers
You will take courses offered by three TU Delft faculties:
- Applied Sciences
- Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Sciences
- Mechanical, Marine and Materials Engineering
The programme also benefits from the clinical input provided by 2 medical centers:
- Leiden University Medical Center
- Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam
TU Delft offers two educational programmes in the field of biomedical engineering; the Master's Programme in Biomedical Engineering (BME) and the BioMechanical Design (BMD) track, as part of the Master's Programme in Mechanical Engineering.
The Master's Programme in BioMedical Engineering focuses on more clinically oriented courses geared toward design and/or research work in the medical industry.
The Biomechanical Design track focuses on biomechanics, control engineering, and the design of mechanisms.
Successful BME students are awarded an MSc degree in BioMedical Engineering, with their chosen specialisation listed on the certificate. BMD graduates receive an MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering, on which the track (BioMechanical Design) is also listed.
