This Master in Biomedical Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) educates engineers capable of using a large set of skills (analytical, modelling, design and inventiveness) in order to face future technological challenges in the scientific and technical fields linked to biomedical engineering and this in ever evolving European and global contexts.


Upon completion of this Master in Biomedical Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), you will have fundamental knowledge in all areas of biomedical engineering (bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, imaging and medical physics, mathematical modelling, artificial organs and rehabilitation, bioinformatics and biomechanics) as well as cutting edge knowledge of one or more major fields of study. 

This Master’s degree offers:

  • Knowledge of the main scientific and industrial issues in the fields of applied biomedical engineering;
  • Classes that emphasize theories and practice to develop advanced professional knowledge;
  • The choice of one of more major fields of study in biomedical engineering;
  • The chance to complete an internship in a hospital, in industry or in a research centre;
  • The possibility of completing part of your master’s degree abroad (in Europe or elsewhere) and in certain cases the granting of a dual master’s degree (diploma granted jointly by UCLouvain and the institution where you studied abroad).

Other requirements

General requirements

  • This programme is taught in English with no prerequisite in French. The student is supposed to have at least a B2 level in the European Framework of Reference. A certificate is required for the holders of a non-Belgian degree
  • The matching between the content of prior degrees and this reference curriculum does not need to be perfect but the acquired skills must be similar. The obtained prior degree must be at least corresponding to a bachelor degree delivered in a country of the European Union (i.e., 180 ECTS credits and a minimum of three years of study after a high school degree)
  • For non-EU diplomas, given the variety of training programs and course contents, studies of at least four years after the secondary school diploma are required. The holders of a professional license degree, a DUT or a DEUA are not eligible because these studies deviate excessively from the aforementioned reference curriculum.
  •  A selection interview may be organized.
