The healthcare market is an increasingly important consumer of technological and, especially, electrical engineering applications. These range from the complex and specialist equipment in hospitals, such as MRI scanners, to the small gadgets and tools that enable people to continue living in their own home environments for longer, such as a wireless alarm system.
Between these two extremes lie countless applications such as pacemakers, monitors of all sorts of biological signals, diagnostic equipment and resources used in the curative process.
The development of these applications is the subject of the Care and Cure programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) . This is a highly dynamic field which integrates knowledge in the fields of electrical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, and biology.
Finding a job is not a problem for our alumni. They typically start their careers in research or product development at a high-tech company. As the program is taught in English, our alumni can also easily find jobs at companies or universities abroad.
Moreover, the broad understanding and systematic way of thinking you gain from the Master’s program of Electrical Engineering opens up opportunities in other fields as well.
