MSc Biomedical Engineering at University of Groningen offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on a broad-range of topics within health care and technology, while working with state-of-the-art medical facilities.


Current-day medical practice relies increasingly on technology. You can think of imaging the inside of your body with MRI or CT, solving heart problems by placing artificial valves, or measuring stress to avoid a burn-out. Many disciplines are involved to realise these devices: microelectronics, information technology, mechanical and material engineering.
