PhD program Life Sciences and Engineering
There are possibilities to obtain a PhD in a wide range of focus areas within the frame work of Life Sciences and Engineering or Biomedical Engineering.
Within the department of Biomedical Engineering
In modern healthcare there is an endless demand for technologies to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of health problems. To meet this demand, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has a strong focus on Health in its research and education programs. The department of Biomedical Engineering is fully devoted to these socially vital health challenges. Biomedical engineers aim to improve health care by cross-disciplinary research that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.
The groups that are part of the department Biomedical Engineering are listed below.
