TU/e distinguishes itself with the free choice of combining subjects and projects. During the Medical Sciences and Technology program, you build your knowledge through lectures, in which the theory is explained. During guided self-study you practice the theory by doing exercises and you conduct challenging practical assignments. The knowledge you gained is then applied in projects, called Challenge-Based Learning (CBL). Together with the fellow students in your group, you take on a complex and challenging case. Solving this case requires an integrated approach, where various disciplines collaborate intensively and align their plans and processes. You learn how to do this with Challenge-Based Learning.
In the first year, you take several courses and work on your CBL projects together with students of Biomedical Engineering. During this time, you can easily switch between programs.
Second and third year
During your second and third year, you specialize in biomedical subjects such as regeneration and immunology. The focus is on technological aspects of the research of these topics.
In addition to the mandatory courses, you can take electives in line with your own interests. In the last months of your bachelor's program, you will work independently on your Bachelor's Final Project in one of the department’s research groups. This is a good preparation for your internship and research project during your master's program.
