The field of medical imaging is evolving rapidly, since diagnosis and treatment are increasingly supported by imaging procedures. The Medical Imaging programme at Utrecht University combines elements from physics, mathematics, computer science, biomedical engineering, biology and clinical medicine.


A Challenging Programme Composed By Two Renowned Institutions

The Medical Imaging programme at Utrecht University is offered in close collaboration between the imaging division of the UMC Utrecht and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). 

Two leading organizations at the forefront of health care and technology. This collaboration tops a solid technological basis with strong links to research performed in a clinical setting.

Are you a student with a clear interest in health care technology, a ‘beta-mindset’, a curiosity towards the natural sciences and medical imaging, and ambition in research? Do you have a background in natural or physical sciences, e.g. physics, mathematics, computer science or more applied technical sciences like biomedical engineering? This Master’s programme might just be a perfect fit.

Why You Should Study Medical Imaging At Utrecht University

  • It’s a strongly technology-oriented Master’s programme in a clinical setting. It allows you to work with an impressive range of imaging platforms.
  • You will have the opportunity to carry out research projects at renowned international research groups and with selected industrial partners, and gain valuable experience which helps your career in the world of research and technology development.
  • The whole field of medical imaging, ranging from image acquisition physics to advanced image processing and analysis topics, is covered.
  • You will benefit from the excellent international reputation and strong position of the Image Sciences Institute (ISI) and the Center for Image Sciences (CIS) at UMC Utrecht.

Career Prospects

Medical Imaging prepares for a career in research, either at our own PhD programme Medical Imaging or at other institutes in the Netherlands or abroad. Alternatively, students leaving after obtaining their MSc degree will profit from a solid education in imaging physics and image analysis for a career in industry.

If you choose to pursue an academic career, a logical step will be to start a PhD project after you obtain your Master’s degree. Your research projects during Medical Imaging will prepare you for PhD positions in the field of imaging physics and image analysis. 

After obtaining a PhD degree, you can choose to continue in academia or to continue your career in the clinic or industry. Continuing in academia consists of doing post-doc work and becoming an assistant, associate or full professor.
