Biomedical Engineering & Informatics

The body and the nervous system are chemical, but not all chemistry. Body movements are electrical, but not all electricity. Support systems in the body are mostly mechanical, but not all mechanics. The traditional division of technologies as we know it, does not fit the body. This aspect is important in the Biomedical Engineering and Informatics programme at Aalborg University, Denmark.

Would you like to design facilities and devices for disabled and develop advanced equipment for use in hospitals and in the rest of the health sector which may save lives?

Would you like to combine your sense for technology, computers and math and your interest for medicine and people? And would you like to study in an international environment together with Danish students and students with other nationalities? If you can answer "yes" to these questions - Biomedical Engineering and Informatics may very well be the master programme that you are looking for. 

Biomedical Engineering at Aalborg University is an interdisciplinary program with focus on electrophysiology and human sensory motor physiology. Potential candidates are students with a B.Sc. in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering or an equivalent degree within information technology.

High level courses within medical technology, neurophysiology, signal processing, scientific communication, rehabilitation technology, etc. are offered. Large projects carried out in groups of students are a substantial part of the programme, where students design and implement solutions to real life problems.

This hands-on training forces students to collaborate like in system development in modern engineering companies. The projects are related to the research carried out at Department of Health Science and Technology. A large project is carried out in the last semester and presented as the master thesis.

Often results are presented at international conferences and/or submitted for publication in peer reviewed journals. See the menu item about research conducted. Successful graduates from the program may apply for PhD stipends within the doctoral school in Biomedical Science and Engineering.

Each student will have a supervisor who is an associate professor or professor at the Department of Health Science and Technology.
