Ready to become an expert in biomedical engineering? Our master's programme connects understanding body functions to finding solutions between fast-moving health technology and common health problems. We need you to make a difference!
In this programme, you’ll acquire knowledge and skills from all fields of biomedical engineering in order to become an expert all-rounder, so once you finish the programme, you can work as a generalist or specialist in one particular field. You’ll be trained in the fundamentals of current biomedical engineering and gain a thorough knowledge of the basic concepts, along with an overview of the main applications used in various fields of biomedical engineering: medical imaging, medical signal processing, medical physics, medical device technology, tissue engineering, biomaterials and more. Alongside this knowledge, you’ll acquire the necessary research skills that will allow you to independently analyse and solve problems, with an all-important emphasis on permanent learning in this ever-changing domain.
You can choose between five specialisations:
You’ll gain an all-round expertise, learning the fundamentals and essential research skills, plus an overview of the main applications, allowing you to work as a generalist or specialist.
First steps on the job market - With a master of Biomedical Engineering, you have plenty of possibilities to find a job in Flanders, Belgium, Europe or around the world. Whether it's in industry, hospitals, healthcare, universities and research institutes, in government or public health... As a biomedical engineer you are versatile, multidisciplinary, and therefore employable in all kinds of positions. For example, become a PhD student at a university or join a large industry R&D department or a product manager or project leader in an (R&D) industry. Work as a biomedical engineer in a hospital, as a consultant in a wide range of functions, from product design to safety regulations or at a notified body as a regulatory affairs manager, screening new products for a CE-mark, patent offices… Rather work in health Insurance, improving health care and controlling costs? In fact, any job requiring the traditional analytical and organisational skills of the academically-trained engineer (general consultancy jobs, top functions in administration, banking sector...) are open ... The choice is yours!
