The internship is an integral part of the Master of Science of Biomedical Engineering programme. (Master's students with a preceding HBO-bachelor's diploma have an adapted programme without an internship period. If these students wish, they may ask for an internship period as well.)The internship has to be scheduled in the first or the second year of the master, has to cover at least 10 weeks (15 EC) and conducted with an external professional institute, university or Biomedical company. Students may start the assignment after completing their bachelor's degree.

The individual master assignment is the completion of the Master programme. The central theme is to learn and subsequently proof to be able defining, performing and completing a research project independently.
The assignment is performed at the Biomedical Engineering research groups of the UT under supervision of a mentor and the responsibilty of a Master Assignment Committee. Occasionally, the assignment can be (partially) conducted at an organization outside the UT. Prior approval of the Examination Committee BMT/BME must be obtained. The Master Assignment is concluded with a thesis and colloquium. (both in English).

Controlled drug delivery technology represents one of the emerging and challenging frontier areas in the development of modern medication and pharmaceuticals. Controlled drug delivery systems aim to achieve more effective therapies which eliminates the potential for both under- and over-dosing originating from uncontrolled drug release and avoid the need for frequent dosing and target the drugs better to a specified area, minimizing drug side effects.

The internship is an integral part of the Master of Science of Chemical Engineering programme. (Master's students with a preceding HBO-bachelor diploma have an adapted programme without an internship period. If these students wish, the may ask for an internship period as well as an additional course).

This course aims at giving students insight into the important role polymer science and -engineering plays in the development of biomaterials for use in medicine. They will assess the relevant scientific- and patent literature, draw conclusions, and identify research and development work that remains to be done.

The course aims to introduce to the students important biomedical membrane applications. Specific attention is given to the translational aspects and the introduction of the technology to the clinic.
Docenten: prof.dr. D. Stamatialis
In this laboratory course the students will acquire experimental skills related to polymer synthesis and characterization, as well as the processing of polymers into medical devices. The students will be able to analyse, discuss and present their results in a written report.
