You will expand your skills and knowledge in engineering, mathematics, physics, multidimensional signal generation and analysis, and you will combine medical informatics with biomedical modelling applied to human anatomy.
The first year is mainly a broad compulsory segment, with courses in anatomy and physiology, medical information systems, and signal theory. The second year comprises in-depth specialisation in one of four tracks:
Each track encompasses approximately 25 compulsory ECTS credits and 15 elective credits. In the final term, you write a thesis within your chosen specialisation, at the department or in a hospital or industry.
After graduating, you will have the skills to formulate and solve engineering problems in the biomedical domain, implement and operate help-improving systems and processes, and evaluate engineering tools and approaches in medicine. The learning outcomes are achieved through the thematic environment of student-centred learning, using teaching methods that include, for example, tutorial groups and home exams.Career opportunities
Biomedical engineers are employed in the industry, in hospitals, government agencies and various research facilities, design materials, devices, algorithms, processes or systems. They often have coordinating or interfacing functions and sometimes do teaching.
A masters degree in biomedical engineering is also a formal qualification for postgraduate studies. Many of our alumni have continued their studies towards a doctoral degree.
The Biomedical Engineering program is offered by the Linköping University.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
