The interaction between the human organism, technical equipment, and methods is essential to medicine and technology.
We are becoming increasingly dependent on advanced equipment for patient diagnosis and treatmente.g. large CT scanners, PET scanners for studying molecular processes in cancer, as well as pacemakers and DNA chips for studying the genome.Medicine and Technology is an interdisciplinary programme offered by DTU in collaboration with the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.
The study programme aims to provide MSc students with proper knowledge of the clinical problems facing the modern healthcare sector, enabling them to develop new technological solutions. Therefore, the study programme covers both engineering and human physiology courses, ranging from the functions of the organs at cell level to modelling physiological processes in the locomotive apparatus.
The Medicine and Technology (Biomedical Engineering) programme from Technical University of Denmark (DTU) offers research-based teaching and the opportunity to specialize in one of the three focus areas:
However, the choice of courses in the students individual study plan offers a certain degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU and the University of Copenhagen.
Medicine and Technology is a highly specialized study programme. Programme graduates work on finding high-tech solutions to problems, particularly in the healthcare sector.
Due to their in-depth knowledge of mathematics, science, medicine, and technology, MSc graduates in Medicine and Technology are capable of analysing complex issues and developing sound, viable solutions using high-tech tools.
You can help develop new methods and products aimed at preventing diseases, curing patients, and saving livese.g. heart monitoring, using intelligent computer programs to measure and estimate whether the patients heart functions normally, or whether the patient needs a pacemaker.
You can also engage in cancer research, developing high-tech scanners indicating exactly where the surgeon should make the incision to remove a cancer tumour, or where to direct the beams to irradiate only the diseased tissue.
Typical career opportunities include:

Only applicants holding either a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a specific programme. The specific programme states in details which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to meet supplementary educational activities.
Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes.
The supplementary requirements can be met as a part of the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. As part of the admission process, it will be decided whether the supplementary courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies or within the first semester. Courses to be passed prior to the commencement of studies must be passed no later than one semester prior to the commencement of studies.
A maximum of 10 ECTS credits may be earned after the commencement of studies and within the first semester. If there is a need for supplementary courses equating to more than 10 ECTS credits, these credits must always be earned prior to the commencement of studies. Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are therefore charged for such supplementary courses. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn.
The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).
The MSc Eng programme in Medicine and Technology requires a sound knowledge of mathematics, physics, human biology and diseases as well as a range of specialization areas within biomedical engineering.
Applicants are therefore expected to review the contents of the mandatory courses and the desired technological specialization courses in the MSc Eng programme and make sure that the necessary requirements are met, or will be, in good time before starting the program.
The applicants are expected to be able to understand and learn new programming languages without teaching assistance.
Applicants are also recommended to have passed a bachelor project within the biomedical engineering field.
When applying, the applicants should
