Master of Bioscience Engineering: Human Health Engineering
HHE offers a unique programme and educational vision focusing on technology for healthy humans. While many programmes in biomedical technology are offered in Belgium and abroad, HHE is the first and only programme offered in English that applies the unique combination of human physiology and engineering in a broad range of areas for healthy humans.
The HHE curriculum is comprised of 120 ECTS (four semesters). The programme is organised into a two-module major, a minor, a master’s thesis and elective courses.
Thefirst module (16 ECTS)contains four courses that will allow you to gain insight in the working of the different physiological systems of the human body as well as in the psychology of the healthy human.
The second module (41 ECTS) consists of eight engineering courses. In this module, you are challenged to gain insight in technology and apply your technological knowledge to solve real-life problems in a creative way via practical exercises and project work.
The major also includes a broadening course on religion and society (3 ECTS).
The 20 ECTS minor is comprised of courses chosen to either strengthen your major or to broaden your expertise in another domain.
In the master’s thesis (30 ECTS), you will further develop your ‘hands-on’ experience and learn to solve problems using the acquired skills.
The curriculum is rounded off with 10 ECTS of elective courses aimed at broadening your academic education. These credits may also be used to take strengthening elective courses to fill any gaps in educational background.
This programme structure allows for a high degree of personalisation, which, in turn, ensures the best possible match for your interests or future career ambitions.
