Biomedical engineering is a relatively new discipline that is up-and-coming. Modern technology has become an inextricable part of medicine and healthcare. That means there is a growing need on both the technological and the healthcare side for people with a grasp of increasingly complex biomedical problems.
Profile of the biomedical engineer
Biomedical engineers specialize in solving technological problems that require an understanding the functions of the human body. They combine the knowledge of the synthetic and analytic methods of physics and chemistry, computational methods of mathematics, and measurement and control systems of electrical engineering with a thorough medical and biological foundation.

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.
