About this program

Master of Science BioMedical Engineering

A growing issue across the world, enormous sums are being invested in the development of medical devices and medical research. Engineers with a biomedical specialisation have an important role to play in these efforts. Demand is high and career prospects are excellent.

Most engineers receive a monodisciplinary training, for instance in electrical, physics, material or mechanical engineering. However, the greatest progress today is made where traditional disciplines meet and overlap. Biomedical engineering is such a multidisciplinary field. In addition to the technical and scientific challenges, BME also calls on the social responsibility of the engineer. A more direct link between technology and the improvement of the quality of life is hard to find.

Biomedical engineers need a solid technical background reinforced with medical know-how. They apply their knowledge in the development and improvement of instruments in such domains as minimally invasive surgery, diagnostics of movement disorders, joint replacement prostheses, pacemakers, imaging and image processing, microsensors and so on.

BioMedical Engineering
The two-year MSc programme in Biomedical Engineering at TU Delft is based on a long history of education and research in three collaborating faculties:

- Applied Sciences;
- Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science and
- Mechanical, Marine and Materials Engineering

The goal of the masters programme in Biomedical Engineering is to train skilled academic engineers with specialist medical and biological knowledge. They must be able to understand and use medical theory, track the literature, and develop conceptual models from a technical perspective. They must be able to collaborate with physicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals to identify, define and analyse biomedical problems. They use biomedical engineering principles and techniques to contribute, to design and produce sound solutions, and to present them clearly. Many recent innovative advances in biomedical engineering have been thanks to competent engineers and physicians collaborating effectively in multidisciplinary teams.
