KU Leuven
The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering provides students with a state-of-the-art overview of all areas in biomedical engineering:



  • Biomechanics

  • Biomaterials

  • Medical sensors and signal processing

  • Medical imaging

  • Tissue engineering


The teaching curriculum builds upon the top-class research conducted by the staff, most of whom are members of the Leuven Medical Technology Centre.
This network facilitates industrial fellowships for our students and enables students to complete design projects and Master\'s theses in collaboration with industry leaders and internationally recognized research labs.
Biomedical engineers are educated to integrate engineering and basic medical knowledge.
This competence is honed through coursework, practical exercises, interactive sessions, a design project and a Master\'s thesis project. Upon graduating, biomedical engineers are employed in the medical device industry, in hospitals, and in research centres.
The broad technological education also makes biomedical engineering attractive to various classical industrial sectors.


VUB & UGent
The Engineering faculties of the Universiteit Gent and VUB organize the interuniversitary Master of Biomedical Engineering and this in a close collaboration with the Medical faculties of both universities. 
The study programme contains 120 credits, spread over four semesters of twelve weeks each.
The specific biomedical part of the Master programme consists of six basic courses, accounting for a total of 30 credits and 42 credits specialised courses.
The programme is further complemented with a masters thesis (24 credits) in the second master and optional courses (also 24 credits in total) spread over the two master years.  
There is a possibility to follow an education track that can lead to the recognition of \'Expert in Medical Radiation Physics\'.
This track consists of a package of eight optional courses (24 credits) given in a collaboration between Ghent University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
When students opt for this track, the subject of their master thesis is to be situated in the domain of medical radiation physics.
(Note: to be formally recognized by the Belgian Federal Agency for Nuclear Control (FANC) as expert in medical radiation physics, the students will have to follow an additional clinical training of minimally one year).


International master of Biomedical Engineering (Erasmus Mundus)
Vrije Universiteit Brussel and UGent are partner in the International Master program in biomedical engineering (Common European Master Course in Biomedical Engineering or CEMACUBE).
In cooperation with: Universiteit Gent; Rhenish-Westphalian Technical University of Aachen, Germany; Trinity College Dublin, Ireland; Czech Technical University of Prague, Czech Republic; University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

Beroepsbeschrijving- en uitwegen
 

The biomedical engineer is employed in industry (medical device and software development and/or production and distribution, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food products industry), in hospitals (laboratories of academic hospitals, as well as management of academic and general hospitals), universities and research institutes, and in government functions (government and advisory organs).
Evidently, the biomedical engineer can also apply for all generic academic engineering jobs.
