Would you like to improve healthcare by developing and applying new technologies? To decrease the number of patients through preventive technology? Or to find safer solutions to treat patients? As a biomedical engineer you will develop better healthcare through technology, prevent diseases with smart wearable sensors, realize early diagnosis with high-tech imaging, or design innovative implants with new biomaterials.
Is this the programme for you?
If you like technology and medicine, biology and physics, creative problem-solving and research; if you have a broad interest, from software development to biomaterials, from biomechanics to MRI physics, from big data applications to surgical instrument design; if you prefer general knowledge over detailed knowledge; if you prefer to be trained in teamwork over working solo, then Biomedical Engineering should be your programme of choice.
This programme will start under condition of accreditation; please check the RUG website for more information.
