The MSc in Biomedical Engineering at University of Twente (UT) trains students in research, design and the development of innovative products and processes that will benefit the healthcare sector. 

About

You will develop medical innovations that really contribute to better care. This dynamic, interdisciplinary field combines engineering and natural and life sciences, such as biology, nanotechnology, physics, electrical engineering, chemistry and mechanical engineering. During the MSc in Biomedical Engineering at University of Twente (UT) you can specialize in one of three tracks:

  • Imaging & Diagnostics
  • Neural & Motor Systems
  • Bionanotechnology & Advanced Biomanufacturing
Medical Innovations for the Future

The role of technology in healthcare is gaining importance. Therefore there is a growing need for engineers with broad technical knowledge, insight into the workings of the human body and creative ideas. During this programme you will be trained to be such an engineer. You will be taught to research, design and develop technology for healthcare. You will use and develop technology to realize new and original applications. Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary field, combining engineering with the natural and life sciences.

A Solution-Driven Approach

During this programme we will teach you to take the needs and interests of patients as your starting point and to convert those into a product. Once you have correctly analyzed the problem, you will draw on your knowledge of physics, mathematics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biology and medicine to come up with the desired technological solution.

Research and Specialization

The programme is closely associated with the MIRA Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine. MIRA ranks among the top five bioengineering departments worldwide. The researchers at MIRA will be responsible for your training.

The programme focuses on three key areas: Imaging & Diagnostics, which is all about techniques for visualizing and interpreting the processes in cells and bodies based on radiation, acoustics, photo-acoustics, ultrasound, and magnetism; Bionanotechnology & Advanced Biomanufacturing, which centres on the development of technologies that restore function to diseased and damaged organs and tissues, such as bone and blood vessels; and Neural & Motor Systems, which focuses on the restoration of nervous and motor system function.

Career Prospects

The Master’s at the University of Twente is an academic programme that will prepare you for your career as a biomedical engineer in healthcare, industry or research institutions (including PhD positions). You may work in settings ranging from hospitals and rehabilitation centres to medical technology companies and laboratories.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    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.

  • Minimum required score (Grade C):

    180

    The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

  • Minimum required score:

    90

    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).
