Master students perform five research projects at partnering academic and clinical teaching hospitals in The Netherlands and abroad. The research projects are defined and guided by a medical doctor and a technological scientist from the University of Twente. Through this collaboration, Technical Medicine has established a strong network where clinical need meets state-of-the-art technology and fundamental research. Visit the website for an overview of the research lines and key researchers who are intensively involved in the educational and research programs of Technical Medicine.
The Master’s is offered in close harmony with the University of Twente’s MIRA research institute, the Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine. MIRA ranks worldwide in the top five of bio-engineering departments. It conducts research to develop new medical-technological solutions in close collaboration with several industrial partners. The link to research as well as the link to professional practice are crucial for academic programmes. The vast majority of the UT technical scientists involved in the Technical Medicine programme are engaged in research at the MIRA institute. The same applies to clinical professors, who lecture in the programme and conduct research at the MIRA institute alongside research in their own clinical environments. In our programme students and researchers challenge and inspire one another to strive for the best new technologies for the benefit of patients all over the world.
