Biomedical Engineering is a branch of Engineering where students acquire knowledge and skills which can be applied to tackle complex problems in biology, medicine and health sciences. The biomedical engineer herein strives towards a solution in balance with technological, economical and ethical constraints.
Biomedical engineers are expected to have a sufficiently broad knowledge of technological aspects relating to several engineering activities such as product development and technical management, having the creativity and problem solving capacities that one expects of academically trained engineers.
Biomedical engineers are also expected to have sufficient basic knowledge of the (bio) medical sciences, to be able to understand the medical end-users and to be able to translate their requirements into technical specifications in such areas as prevention, prognosis, (early) diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
This multidisciplinary programme broadens scientific knowledge and forms a link between medical and technological knowledge.
Graduated students master the fundamentals of current biomedical engineering and have a thorough knowledge of the basic concepts and an overview of the main applications in various fields of biomedical engineering (medical imaging, medical signal processing, medical physics, medical device technology, tissue engineering, biomaterials etc.).
The biomedical engineer is versatile, per definition multidisciplinary and therefore employable in many different positions such as:
- Product manager in an industry. Your education and training will enable you to lead a multinational and multicultural project team.
- R&D-department of an industry, working as a project leader on applied resea ch (e.g. design, production and assessment of biomaterials for artificial organs, heart valves, pacemakers; design of imaging techniques, sensors and information technology for patient monitoring; acquisition, storage, analysis and simulation of bio-data).
- Medical physics engineer in a hospital supporting and improving patient care by applying engineering and management skills to health-care technology.
Any job requiring the traditional analytical and organizational skills of the academically trained engineer (general consultancy jobs, top functions in administration, banking sector, etc.)
