This specialization belongs to the master's programme Mechanical Engineering.
This specialization focuses on the use of mechanical engineering technology and methodology to address health care problems.
New developments in functional prosthetics, special wheelchairs and countless other rehabilitation and orthopaedic aids have been made possible through biomechanical engineering. This specialization focuses on the use of mechanical engineering technology and methodology to address health care problems. In this specialization, you will become part of an approach that takes the end users into consideration as an essential aspect of product development (care/cure).
In addition to mechanical engineering aspects, it addresses relevant issues from a medical perspective and highlights the contribution of other technical disciplines (electrical engineering in particular). Students with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering that includes a minor in Mechanical Engineering are eligible for admission to this specialization.
