Overview

DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

Therefore, the study Biomedical Engineering programme at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) 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.

The interaction between the human organism, sensors, the technical equipment and the alogrithms mapping this interaction is essential to biomedical engineering.

We are becoming increasingly dependent on advanced equipment for patient diagnosis and treatment—e.g. imaging equipment such as PET scanners for studying molecular processes in cancer, life-sustaining equipments sucha as pacemakers, DNA chips for studying the genome and deep learning-techniques for investigating and exploiting huge amounts of clinical data.

Study programme focus

 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.

Career

Due to their in-depth knowledge of mathematics, science, medicine, and technology, MSc graduates in Biomedical Engineering are capable of analysing complex issues and developing sound, sustainable and viable solutions using high-tech tools.

Career opportunities

Typical career opportunities include:

  • Hospitals:
  • Further development of diagnostic methods and equipment
  • Participation in clinical research (modelling, planning, and conducting clinical trials)
  • Testing and maintenance of complex technical installations
  • Training of other staff groups.
  • Companies:
  • Product development and research
  • Test planning
  • Sales, marketing, and service.
  • Universities and research institutions
