Key facts

Students who aspire an international experience will not only get this through the collaboration with our international students, but may want to include an Erasmus exchange in the 2nd master.

When students choose for this Biomedical Engineering program at Ghent University and wish to apply for the expert recognition, the topic of the master thesis has to be within the (research) domain of medical radiation physics. Note that, in order to get the formal recognition as expert in radiation physics by the Belgian Federal Agency for Nuclear Control (FANC), students have to do a mandatory clinical training of at least 1 year in the domain for which recognition is asked (i.e. Radiotherapy, Radiology or Nuclear medicine in vivo).
