Life Sciences and Engineering graduate program
The Life Sciences and Engineering graduate program is an important part of the department of Biomedical Engineering, a discipline that is rapidly gaining in importance. Technological innovations have become an essential part of modern healthcare and patient care. Therefore, both in industry and in healthcare, there is an increasing need for people who can deal with today’s increasingly complex biomedical problems.
The biomedical engineer specializes in solving technical problems that require an understanding of human functioning, so he needs not only engineering skills and knowledge but also a comprehensive medical and biological understanding.
Research within the Department of Biomedical Engineering is focused on three themes: Chemical Biology, Biomedical Imaging and Modelling and Biomechanics & Tissue Engineering. The most important aim of the research is to design and develop solutions for clinical problems in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment in healthcare.
Within the Life Sciences and Engineering graduate program of the TU/e Graduate School, the following programs are available:
