MSc Technical Medicine

The MSc Technical Medicine is a three year joint-degree Master programme together with Leiden University, Erasmus University Rotterdam and their academic medical centers.
 It combines a thorough understanding of the functioning of the human body and the influence of disease processes with an equally comprehensive understanding of medical technology and professional medical procedures.

Introduction week

Introduction Programme

All new MSc-Students receive an email with an invititation to an introduction programme event. This will take place on the Friday before the start of the Academic Year.

The first year will concentrate on providing a deeper theoretical understanding of the specialisation, training students in reserved procedures and clinical skills in a simulated environment and broadening their knowledge and skills in patient safety, efficiency, quality and the implementation of complex medical technologies.

Track - Sensing & Stimulation

The specialisation combines the techniques and applications of these sensing (monitoring) and stimulation techniques. This specialisation focuses on two important trends in health care: early diagnosis and developing the most targeted patient-specific treatment possible with the shortest possible recovery time and minimal side effects. The first year exsists out of the following track specific courses:

  • Advanced Signal Acquisition
  • Sensing of Neurophysiological Signals
  • Electrostimulation of Neurophysiological systems
  • Drug Sensing and Delivery
  • Advanced Signal Processing
  • Extramural Sensing and Virtual Stimulation
  • Sensing and Stimulation of Circulation and Ventilation: Acute and Chronic Care

FAQ

Is a double degree possible?
  • A double degree in TM and BME is not possible, because of too much overlap in the obligatory part of the master BME and the courses of Clinical Technology and Technical Medicine.  However, it is possible to follow extra courses which will be mentioned on the supplement of your diploma.

  • If you have questions about other double degree’s please contact the master coordinators of both education programmes first. 

Am I eligible for the master Technical Medicine?
  • Only students with a Bachelor’s degree Clinical Technology (joint degree) or with a Bachelor’s degree Technical Medicine (University of Twente) are directly admitted to the master programme TM.
  • On an individual basis a pre-master programme may be possible for some students. To discuss possibilities, please contact schakel-3ME@tudelft.nl

Second Year

In the second year, students will do four clinical-technological internships of ten weeks each. Internships start every three months with start dates in September, December, March and June. Contact stage-TM@tudelft.nl for more information about the internships.

Internships are full time with every other Friday reserved for education. On Friday morning obligatory medical techniques in clinical practice (MTK) and Friday afternoons obligatory mentor-group meetings.

FAQ

Is it possible to arrange my own internships?
  • Available internships for every season are shared with students 2 months before the start of the internship. Students will set their preferences and a matching will be made between students and internships. Students who want to arrange their own internship can ask their potential supervisors to register the internship via the submission form. If the internship is approved and added to the internship database, students who have arrange the internship will be matched with it.
Is it possible to do an internship at a company or in another country?

No it is not possible to do an TM2-internship at a company or in another country. There is a possibility to do such an internship during the TM3-year.

TM Internships

More information about all TM Internships can be found in seperate Brightspace Courses and in the MSc TM overall course.

Third Year

During the third year, you complete your literature study and MSc thesis project. Further, you have a complementary 15 EC in which you can follow courses, do an internship or a thesis feasibility project. As a student, we expect you to take the lead in arranging these projects yourself and approach the researchers in the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centers that you’d like to be your supervisor. Contact stage-TM@tudelft.nl for more information about the third year.
