MSc Biomedical Devices

MSc Biomedical Devices

The profile Biomedical Devices offers a specialisation profile for students following either the Microelectronics or Signal & System tracks. The specialisation focusses on: Biosensors, BioMEMS and Microsystem Integration or Biomedical Circuits and Systems when choosing it as a part of the Microelectronics track or Biomedical Signal Processing when choosing it as a part of the Signals andSystems track.

Biomedical Devides are devices for medical diagnosis, monitoring and treatment. They can be fixed, portable, wearable, implantable and injectable. Biomedical Devices are active and thus embed electronics, computing and software.

Examples of biomedical devices are:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Ultrasound (US) imaging;
  • Monitors for pulse oximetry, blood pressure, glucose, electrocardiography (ECG), electro-encephalography (EEG), electro-myography (EMG), electro- corticography (ECoG), temperature, galvanic skin response, bio-impedance


There are three subprofiles: BioSemi (part of the track Microelectronics of the Electrical Engineering programme), BioCAS (part of the track Microelectronics of the Electrical Engineering programme) and BioSP (part of the track Signals & Systems of the Electrical Engineering programme).
