The field of biomedical engineering combines fundamental concepts in engineering, biology and medicine in order to develop innovative approaches and new devices, materials, implants, algorithms, processes and systems for the medical industry. These could be used, for example, to assess and evaluate technology; to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases; for patient care and rehabilitation and to improve medical practice and health care delivery.
The first year of the Biomedical Engineering master's programme at Linköping University focuses on mandatory courses expanding students engineering skills and knowledge in areas like anatomy, physiology, biology and biochemistry. Courses in mathematics, statistics, multidimensional biomedical signal generation and analysis, combined with medical informatics and biomedical modeling and simulation, create a solid foundation for the continuation of the programme.In the second year, three areas of specialisation are introduced: medical informatics, medical imaging and bioengineering. In addition to the specialisation tracks there is a mandatory course in the Philosophy of Science, preparing students for their degree project.
Biomedical engineers are employed in industry, hospitals, government agencies and research facilities of educational, medical, and technical institutions. They often have a coordinating or interfacing function and are also involved in teaching. In industry they may design materials, devices, algorithms, processes and systems where an in-depth understanding of living systems and technology is essential.The master's degree in biomedical engineering is a formal qualification for postgraduate studies. A large proportion of our alumni have continued their studies towards a doctoral degree.

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.
