About this program
M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering
The recent rapid progress in the natural sciences and in engineering has enabled the use of engineering tools to answer many questions that have troubled humanity since its very beginnings. Ultra-fast and ultra-powerful supercomputers, the mapping of the human genome, interfaces that connect directly to the brain, nanotechnology-driven molecular-sized implants, and fast internet-based communication technologies are but a few of the many new technologies that are quickly becoming widely available.
Students in the Department of Biomedical Engineering receive extensive training in both the medical and engineering fields. The aim is to train engineers who will be able to conduct and lead research and development projects in both the University research environment and the dynamic high-tech world, as well as to develop and provide support for engineering equipment in hospitals. Responsibility for training biomedical engineers is shared by the Faculties of Health Sciences and Engineering. Students take courses in both faculties, gaining broad basic knowledge, as well as more specific skills in those areas that are essential for a biomedical engineer.
The M.Sc. Program is a two year thesis (research) track Program.
