- Program Description:
- The role of technology in contemporary medicine has evolved considerably over the past decades. Computers and other high-tech devices are essential in hospitals, rehabilitation centres and private medical practices. Moreover, fundamental insights into the functioning of the human body have increased through the application of engineering in understanding tissue generation and regeneration, physiological processes and locomotion.
This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering provides students with a state-of-the-art overview of all areas in biomedical engineering: o Biomechanics o Biomaterials o Medical sensors and signal processing o Medical imaging o Tissue engineering The teaching curriculum builds upon the top-class research conducted by the staff, most of whom are members of the Leuven Medical Technology Centre. This network facilitates industrial fellowships for our students and enables students to complete design projects and Master's theses in collaboration with industry leaders and internationally recognised research labs.
The programme aims to educate engineers that are specialized in current design and production activities in biomedical technology.
