The healthcare market is an increasingly important consumer of technological and, especially, electrical engineering applications. These range from the complex and specialist equipment in hospitals, such as MRI scanners, to the small gadgets and tools that enable people to continue living in their own home environments for longer, such as a wireless alarm system. Between these two extremes lie countless applications such as pacemakers, monitors of all sorts of biological signals, diagnostic equipment and resources used in the curative process. 

The development of these applications is the subject of the Care and Cure program. This is a highly dynamic field which integrates knowledge in the fields of electrical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, and biology. 

While the Care and Cure program is a very broad study, the following courses are compulsory: 

  • Electromagnetism 
  • Physics 
  • Mathematics 
  • Control engineering 
  • Signal processing 

In addition, you have the choice of more than 60 elective courses, including: 

  • Bioelectric physiology 
  • Fundamentals of medical image processing 
  • Biomedical sensing technology 
  • Knowledge systems and their applications 
  • Neuromonitoring 
  • Ubiquitous computing and activity recognition 
  • Pulsed power technology 
  • Embedded visual control 
  • Wireless communication 

The Care and Cure program is in essence the Master’s program of Electrical Engineering with your specialization focused on the research groups within the Care and Cure domain.
