Courses per specialization

In the department of biomechanical engineering we have different specialisations. For each specialisation we recommend you to take a number of courses that we consider to be necessary for graduating in our group. Of course there is also room for taking courses according to your own preference.

Your choice is not entirely free: you course list will need to be approved by one of the professors in our group.

Below you find the different specialisations in our group, the recommended courses for each specialisation, and the professor in charge that has to approve your course list. For more detailed description of the courses checkĀ OSIRIS.
