DescriptionCombine your sense for technology, computers and mathematics with your interest for medicine and people. Biomedical Engineering at Aalborg University is an interdisciplinary programme with a focus on electrophysiology and human sensory motor physiology.
With this Master programme, you can study how to measure and interpret signals from the body (diagnostics), but also how you can influence the body with different instruments (therapy). The traditional division of the body in either chemical, electrical and mechanical aspects, does not fit the way it really works. The Biomedical Engineering and Informatics programme represents a more holistic approach to the working of the body.
Students take part in high level courses within medical technology, neurophysiology, signal processing, scientific communication, rehabilitation technology, etc. Large projects carried out in groups of students are a substantial part of the programme.
During the programme you will design and implement solutions to real life problems, and the hands-on training ensures that you collaborate in system development at modern engineering companies. The projects are related to the research carried out at Department of Health Science and Technology at Aalborg University. A large project is carried out in the last semester and presented as the master thesis.
The area of Biomedical Engineering offers many job opportunities.
Approximately fifty percent of graduates from the programme are employed at hospitals and in companies within research, development or sale of biomedical equipment.
Twenty-five percent are employed as consultants within development of IT-solutions in the Health Sector.
The last twenty-five percent are employed as research assistants or Ph.D.-students for instance at Aalborg University, where Biomedical Engineering is a large research field.
AdmissionAdmission to the Master programme in Biomedical Engineering and Informatics presupposes a Bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering. Other specific engineering programmes may also qualify for the Master programme possibly followed by a requirement for supplement courses before the beginning of the 1st semester. These programmes are for instance:
- Electronics engineering
- Computer science
- Mechanical engineering
In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level.
