Transferring from university of applied sciences (HBO) to Biomedical Engineering

Students with a Bachelor’s Degree in a relevant field of study (for example Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Chemical Engineering) may be considered for admission after first completing a pre-master's. Admission to the pre-master’s is dependent on your prior education, your chosen specialisation and the coherence between the two. The programme will be composed of courses in mathematics and content-specific courses related to the chosen specialisation.


  • Technische Natuurkunde: Pre-Master's in 'Imaging and Diagnostics'
  • Werktuigbouwkunde: Pre-Master's in 'Neural and Motorsystems'
  • Elektrotechniek: Pre-Master's in 'Neural and Motorsystems'
  • Chemische Technologie: Pre-Master's in 'Tissue Engineering' 


Please follow the specific application instructions when applying with a Dutch HBO Degree.
