The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering is a complete English taught two-year programme and leads to a joint degree from UGent and VUB. In this master's course, knowledge and skills in all fields in biomedical engineering will be given, so when you finished the Master's programme, you can be employed as a generalist, and you will also be specialized in one particular field of biomedical engineering.
As a student, you will be able to select any field of biomedical engineering. You will be trained to work in interdisciplinary project teams, composed of engineers and medical specialists. To prepare further for interdisciplinary teams, students and scholars are treated as equals. To train for working in a European setting, you will get knowledge in the healthcare situation in several countries in Europe, and you will be trained in cultural differences between European countries.
