The Master in Biomedical Engineering provides you with a comprehensive overview of all areas in biomedical engineering, and prepares you for an active role in biomechanics, biomaterials, medical sensors, biosignal processing, medical imaging and tissue engineering.
- The programme responds to the increased technological needs in healthcare. These needs result, among others, from the ageing population, the challenge to provide more and better care with less people and the challenge to obtain cost-effectiveness in our healthcare system.
- It aims to deliver interdisciplinary-trained biomedical engineers who can act as integrator between medical and technological specialists by understanding the medical needs and by translating them into engineering requirements. Conversely, these biomedical engineers are able to design and produce medical devices and procedures that can effectively solve problems through their integration in clinical practice.
- The curriculum builds on cutting-edge research conducted by an internationally renowned teaching staff spread across several departments and leading strong research groups in the field of biomedical engineering. Their strong ties with the nearby university hospital UZ Leuven and the biomedical engineering sector are a major asset to the master’s programme.
- At the Faculty of Engineering Science, students are given the opportunity to complete one or two semesters of their degree within the Erasmus+ programme at a European university, or a university outside Europe. Students are also encouraged to carry out industrial and research internships abroad under the supervision of the Internship Coordinator.
Careers await you in the medical device industry, R&D engineering, or as a production or certification specialist. In addition, the broad technological background you’ll acquire as a Biomedical Engineer will make you an attractive candidate for employment in conventional industrial sectors. Many alumni find employment within three months of graduation.
Thanks to the rapid innovation taking place in biomedical engineering, KU Leuven offers several PhD places each year, opening the opportunity to continue your education.
