Study structure

When you study Medical Sciences and Technology, you will gather knowledge during courses. You will apply the knowledge acquired almost immediately in the Design-Based Learning (DBL). Additionally, you will spend about one third of your study time on self-study, such as preparing courses and DBL, as well as studying for exams. At the end of the third year, you will have a so-called Bachelor's End Project.

First year

All first year courses and DCL projects will be followed together with students of the major Biomedical Engineering. You will follow courses like Cell & Tissue, Introduction course Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biostatistics & Linear Algebra, and Programming & Genomics. During year one you can easily switch between the majors Biomedical Engineering and Medical Sciences and Technology.

Second and third year

You will specialize in biomedical subjects link imaging and immunology & infection, while students in Biomedical Engineering will focus on technological subjects on technological subjects like, transport physics and materials.

The last six months of your bachelor's program, you follow electives and you will independently work in one of the research groups, in your Bachelor's End Project.
