Biomedical engineers want to improve healthcare. Achieving this involves being able to optimize available information, techniques and methods, and translate these into solutions a doctor can use. Such techniques could improve diagnosis, speed up the treatment process, or even allow patients to be treated before symptoms are noticeable.

Major Biomedical Engineering

In this course you will learn how to implement technological methods to solve biomedical questions. You will use analysis and synthesis methods from physics and chemistry, calculation methods from mathematics, modelling techniques from mechanical engineering, measuring and control systems from electrical engineering, and programming methods from computer science. Additionally, you will off course use your knowledge about the human body from biology. 

Upon graduating, you will receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering.

The study association represent the interests of the students at the department of Biomedical Engineering. It tries to let the students view their field of study from a different angle. It achieves this by means of excursions, lectures and symposia and by organizing a study trip. On the other hand, the association also organises sports tournaments, parties, a weekly drink, weekends and other forms of leisure activities to stimulate the relation between the members themselves.



The independent judgment by the NVAO strengthens higher education institutions in their quality culture. On the basis of the judgments of NVAO higher education programmes are recognized and students receive a legally recognized degree. In the Netherlands, NVAO assesses the internal quality assurance pursued by universities and the quality of the programmes they provide.
