Course structure

The information provided on this page is relevant for all master’s tracks within the master’s programs Biomedical Engineering and Medical Engineering; it will give you an overview of all the possible specializations.

When you choose this master’s track, you will officially enroll in the master’s program Biomedical Engineering or Medical Engineering. The following master’s tracks are part of the masters Biomedical and Medical Engineering:

Tracks in the master’s program Biomedical Engineering:

  • Regenerative engineering,
  • Regenerative medicine and technology (with Utrecht University),
  • Biomechanics and mechanobiology,
  • Chemical biology, materials and nanomedicine,
  • Biomedical imaging and modelling,
  • Medical imaging (with Utrecht University).

Tracks in the master’s program Medical Engineering:

  • Biomechanics,
  • Medical imaging and modelling,
  • Medical imaging (with Utrecht University).

Specialization within the master’s track

After you enrolled for a master’s program, you will choose your master’s track and you will specify your master’s track further by choosing a specialization. This specialization corresponds with a research group and professor who will guide you during the master’s program:

  • Soft tissue engineering and mechanobiology (Prof.dr. Bouten),
  • Including Immunoengineering (dr. Tel)
  • Soft tissue biomechanics (Prof.dr.ir Oomens),
  • Biointerface Science of Regenerative Medicine (Prof.dr. de Boer),
  • Orthopeadic biomechanics (Prof.dr. Ito),
  • Cardiovascular biomechanics (Prof.dr.ir. van de Vosse)
  • Including ultrasound imaging (dr.ir. Lopata)
  • Medical image analysis (Prof.dr. Pluim),
  • Computational biology (Prof.dr. Hilbers),
  • Synthetic biology (dr.ir. de Greef),
  • Systems biology and metabolic diseases (Prof.dr.ir. van Riel),
  • Macro-organic chemistry (Prof.dr. Meijer),
  • Biomedical materials (Prof.dr. Dankers),
  • Chemical biology (Prof.dr.ir. Brunsveld),
  • Molecular cell and structural biology (dr. Ottmann),
  • Protein engineering (Prof.dr. Merkx),
  • Molecular biosensing for medical diagnostics (Prof.dr.ir. Prins),
  • Bio-organic chemistry (Prof.dr.ir. van Hest).

Within the master’s tracks, depending on your wishes, you can choose a research profile or a free profile; the free profile will give you more room to choose free elective whereas the research profile enables you to do a larger graduation project. In some of the master’s tracks you will have a set core courses for your specialization. In the master’s program Medical Engineering the clinical modules are a set part of your course program.

The education guide of our master’s programs provides you with all the information about the course program, internship and graduation project. Furthermore, you can find the exact division of ECTS per component in the study program in the education guide and an overview of which master’s program and master’s track you can choose per specialization (on the page about Master choice). During your study time at the TU/e you will also use the education guide as your source of information for general study related information.
