After graduation

With a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering under your belt you could look for a job directly. However, most students choose for one of the corresponding master's programs in order to deepen their knowledge and broaden their skills. This can be done on different locations.

Entry into a master's program

Most of our bachelor-students choose for one of the two Master programs offered by the Biomedical Engineering department. These are part of the Life Sciences and Engineering Graduate program.

The first Master’s program is the Biomedical Engineering (BME) program for which you are directly admitted.

Additionally, the Master’s program Medical Engineering (ME) is offered. The requirements for this Master’s program depends of the chosen major in the Bachelor’s program. It might be needed to follow additional courses. You can find more information regarding the requirements for the ME program here. Additionally, knowledge of the Dutch language is required for the Master’s program Medical Engineering. A minimum level of NT2 is required.

Within the Graduate Program you can choose between multiple Master tracks for specialization.

A different program within the TU/e

Some students choose to follow a different Master’s program within the TU/e, for example Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Electrical Engineering or Industrial Engineering. In general it is possible to compose your curriculum during your Bachelor in such way you are directly admitted to another department.

A different program outside the TU/e

It is also possible to continue studying by following Master’s program outside the TU/e. This can be done as well within the Netherlands as outside. A small percentage students successfully chooses for this option each year. This illustrates the strong foundation which is developed within the Biomedical Engineering program in Eindhoven. If you consider to continue your Master’s program outside the TU/e, you should look closely at the requirements which are different for each program. The Bachelor’s program Biomedical Engineering might also provide access to a program at another (inter)national university. However, following a transition program might be necessary for admission.

For international experience you don't have to follow a complete master's program at a foreign university. Almost all our master’s students (BME & ME) follow part of their master's program in a foreign country by means of externships.
