Programma-opties

  • Prostheses and Implant Design (specialisatie)
  • Prostheses and Implant Interface Technology (specialisatie)

    This specialization deals with design, analysis and assessment how medical materials behave inside the body.

    It also focuses on how microorganisms and mammalian cells/tissue cells interact with the materials, and how we can utilize and direct these interactions to enhance medical treatments. Materials used entail solid implants such as metals (titanium, cobalt-chrome), polymers (polylactic acid, polymethylmethacrylate, silicone, and others) but also hydrogels and extracellular-like systems used in e.g. orthopedics, dentistry/orthodontics, ophthalmology, cardio-vascular medicine and many others.

    Areas which are touched upon are the understanding and prevention of infections, understanding and directing cellular behavior around materials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and biomaterials development. All via course intensive studies using the current state-of-the-art related to research and research methods. During the curriculum, various general academic and research qualities are being thought as well as creating independent thinking and critical assessment of developments which also provide a solid basis for any R&D related career.

  • HTSM Honours Master (honoursprogramma)

    This Master's degree programme gives access to the additional, highly selective, High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) Honours Master.

    The HTSM Honours Master is organized in cooperation with Philips and other major industry partners.

  • Diagnostic Imaging & Instrumentation (specialisatie)
  • European Master programme (Double Degree) (specialisatie)

    The European Master Programme Biomedical Engineering (CEMACUBE) is a joint project between six participating universities:

    The universities of Groningen (the Netherlands), Aachen (Germany), Dublin (Ireland), Ghent and Brussels (Belgium), and Prague (Czech Republic).
