About

We are becoming increasingly dependent on advanced equipment for patient diagnosis and treatment—e.g. large CT scanners, PET scanners for studying molecular processes in cancer, as well as pacemakers and DNA chips for studying the genome.

Medicine and Technology is an interdisciplinary programme offered by DTU in collaboration with the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

Study programme focus

The study programme aims to provide MSc students with proper knowledge of the clinical problems facing the modern healthcare sector, enabling them to develop new technological solutions. Therefore, the study programme covers both engineering and human physiology courses, ranging from the functions of the organs at cell level to modelling physiological processes in the locomotive apparatus.

Focus areas

The Biomedical Engineering programme from Technical University of Denmark (DTU) offers research-based teaching and the opportunity to specialize in one of the three focus areas:

  • Signal and Model-based Diagnostics
  • Image Diagnostics and Radiation Physics
  • Biomechanics and Biomaterials

However, the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a certain degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU and the University of Copenhagen.
