Biomedical Engineering encompasses fundamental concepts in engineering, biology and medicine to develop innovative approaches and new devices, materials, implants, algorithms, processes and systems for the medical industry. These could be used for the assessment and evaluation of technology; for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases; for patient care and rehabilitation and for improving medical practice and health care delivery.
The first year of the Biomedical Engineering programme 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 modelling and simulation, create a solid foundation for the continuation of the programme.
In the second year, three areas of specialization are introduced: medical informatics, medical imaging and bioengineering. As well as that, a mandatory course in Philosophy of Science is given, preparing students for the degree project.
Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering programme should be able to:
The Biomedical Engineering curriculum supports and sustains "Engineering for Health" through a relevant mixture of mandatory and elective courses. This enables both broad and in-depth studies, which emphasise the importance of multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches to real world engineering problems in biology and medicine.
Applicants are expected to have:
If the applicant has other type of degree, it must conform with the ABET (American Board of Engineering and Technology) specification for Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.
The specific requirements may be assessed as not fulfilled if:
