Master of Science Medical Engineering

Hein de Hoop

“When there’s something wrong with the electrical conductivity of your heart, you can sometimes benefit from a pacemaker, but not always. I’m working on a mathematical model of the human heart and circulation. We saw it’s not just the electrical but also the mechanical properties of the heart that affect the success of a pacemaker. This could help doctors in their patient selection. TU/e Medical Engineering program is highly regarded, with courses at TU/e and modules in the clinic. You do projects with people from different backgrounds, which is great for your communication skills. The city of Eindhoven has a great atmosphere and plenty of activities, all within biking distance. The program really focuses on the collaboration between engineering and the clinic, which is great. In the future, I’d like to work as an engineer in a clinical environment.”
