Specialisations

As part of the Biomedical Engineering master’s programme, students must choose one area of specialisation. There are four specialisations to choose from.

The specialisations are devided in Basic and Advanced. The Basic (15 ECTS) consists of  5 mandatory lectures. In Advanced you can choose lectures in the extend of 9 ECTS, 4 of which must NOT be lectures marked as VO.
