Welcome

Welcome at the University of Twente and more specific the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Biomedical Engineering of the faculty of Science and Technology. The goal of our programmes is to stimulate students to become Biomedical Engineers suitable for careers in health care, industry, government and academia. The latter to advance research in Biomedical Engineering. Until now 100 Master’s of Science in BME have graduated who all achieved jobs in the areas mentioned above.

The study programme provides a learning environment, in which students are encouraged to apply engineering methods to advanced scientific discoveries. Biomedical engineers are able to design diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation technologies in order to improve human health by integrating knowledge from basic cellular and molecular biology through tissue, organ and whole body physiology and to exploit this knowledge, MIRA, the Research Institute for Biomedical Engineering and Technical Medicine, provides a unique and rich environment which offers research projects ranging from basic science to engineering design and clinical application.

This study guide contains the basic information of the education programmes of Biomedical Engineering in a single booklet. Information that is relevant for bachelor students is presented in the Dutch language. All other information is in English, reflecting the international ambition of the University of Twente. You can refer to our websites for up-to-date information.

I hope this guide will be helpful in finding your way during the course of your study. On behalf of the lecturers and other staff members of the Biomedical Engineering, I wish you a pleasant and successful participation in our study programmes.

Wat is Biomedische Technologie?

Biomedische Technologie is een technische discipline met als doel technologie, biologie en geneeskunde samen te brengen om zo de kwaliteit van het leven te verbeteren.

Het accent van deze discipline ligt op onderzoek naar, en ontwikkeling, productie en toepassing van nieuwe producten, processen en methoden voor de gezondheidszorg en klinische praktijk.

Een biomedisch ingenieur kan carrière maken in de gezondheidszorg, het bedrijfsleven, de academie en de overheid en kan zich specialiseren in onderzoek, design, implementatie of consultancy.

De BME mastertracks van de Universiteit Twente zijn:

o

Molecular-, Cellular- & Tissue Engineering (MCTE)

o

Human Function Technology (HFT)

Met als eventuele subtracks:

- Zorgtechnologie (HFT-Care)

- Klinische Fysica (HFT-Clinical Physics)

Meer informatie over de inhoud van de verschillende tracks vind je in deel B, hoofdstuk 4 en 5.

What is Biomedical Engineering?

Biomedical Engineering is a technical discipline aimed at the connecting areas of technology, biology and medicine in order to improve the quality of life. The focus of this discipline concerns research, development, production and application of new products, processes and methods for health care and clinical practices.

The biomedical engineer can make a career in health care, commercial business or government and can be specialised in the fields of research, design, implementation or consultancy.

The BME master’s programme at University of Twente (UT) comprises two main tracks:

o

Molecular-, Cellular- & Tissue-engineering (MCTE)

o

Human Function Technology (HFT)

With the optional subtracks:

- Health Care Technology (HFT-Care)

- Clinical Physics (HFT-Clinical Physics)

For more information on the different tracks please refer to part B, chapters 4 and 5.

Set-up of the guide

This Biomedical Engineering (BME) study guide aims at providing all information that concerns organisation, regulations, curriculum, courses and services that are of interest for all BME students of the University of Twente (UT). Each topic in this guide refers to a website, which contains the most up to date information.

The study guide is divided into two main parts. In part A you can find general information about the university, the campus, ICT facilities, organisational aspects of the UT and several regulatory and financial issues. This information is more or less the same for all UT-students. This part is written in Dutch, but each topic has a short description in English (in italics).

Part B is specifically for Biomedical Engineering students. It contains information about the organisation of the faculty, the study programme, quality assurance, research groups, courses, curriculums, and forms – both for bachelor and master students. The first 4 chapters of part B are mainly for the BME bachelor’s students. Since it is required to speak Dutch to enrol in the bachelor’s programme these chapters are in Dutch, with a short description in English, except for chapter 4 which is completely in Dutch. Chapter 5 is specifically written for BME master students, and that part is completely in English.

I’m a new bachelor student at the University of Twente

Novice students can use this guide to inform themselves about the UT, its organisation, regulations and facilities, as well as on faculty and programme level. The first chapter comprises all the information to get you through your first weeks on the UT.

I’m a 2nd of 3rd year bachelor student BME
