Course Content

The objective of the degree programme is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to conduct independent work and/or research in the field of biomedical engineering, particularly in areas related to computer science and medical physics. Following completion of the degree programme, graduates will:

  • possess basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and genetics
  • have acquired basic knowledge of biophysics and engineering mathematics (numerically-oriented), including programming
  • have learned how to apply computational concepts to the life sciences, in relation to image analysis, scientific visualisation, inverse problems, and simulation systems
  • possess detailed knowledge of radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, and medical imaging, and will have learned methods for mediating the gap between technologists and physicians
  • have completed a scientific (life-sciences-related) project
  • have successfully resolved technical issues related to Biomedical Engineering
  • have acquired expertise in the critical assessment of technical systems in medicine
