Learning Outcomes

The programme offers an inter-university master programme to Bachelors of Applied Sciences and Engineering. It also provides the opportunity for bachelors in medicine and health care or sciences, subject to a preceeding specific training, to follow this programme as well. This multidisciplinary programme broadens scientific knowledge and forms a link between medical and technological knowledge.
The discussed themes are always relatable to the combination of cutting edge technology and automation techniques for biomedical applications.
Biomedical engineers are expected to have a sufficiently broad knowledge of technological aspects relating to several engineering activities such as product development and technical management, having the creativity and problem solving capacities that one expects of academically trained engineers.
Biomedical engineers are also expected to have sufficient basic knowledge of the (bio) medical sciences, to be able to understand the medical end-users and to be able to translate their requirements into technical specifications in such areas as prevention, prognosis, (early) diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
In order to meet the abovementioned objectives the biomedical engineer must have been exposed to the following:
(a) a broad standard educational package in engineering techniques: chemistry (including organic chemistry), elasticity and strength of materials, mechanics/continuum mechanics and electronics; (b) a standard package consisting of the main medical subjects of interest to a biomedical engineer: anatomy, physiology and biology; (c) topics relating to medical equipment, the carrying out of measurements and observations of patients and acquiring and processing of patient data: electrical measurement techniques, medical instrumentation (including radiation equipment), medical imaging, biomedical signal processing and date analysis (including image processing), medical data processing and telematics; (d) biomechanics and biomaterials (including mechanical and chemical specifications of prostheses and implants and biocompatibility) and rehabilitation engineering; (e) safety aspects of biomedical engineering.
