Program Description

MSc in Biomedical Engineering

Linköping University

This programme combines fundamental concepts and knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to develop innovative technologies, materials, processes, and systems, with the aim of improving healthcare.

You will expand your skills and knowledge in engineering, mathematics, physics, multidimensional signal generation and analysis, and you will combine medical informatics with biomedical modeling applied to human anatomy.

The intersection of natural science, medicine, and technology is a dynamic place. Driven by demands for equitable and efficient healthcare and ever-improving quality of life, technological development benefits humanity and helps create a sustainable future. With a history of pioneering interdisciplinary research and education, Linköping University provides premier opportunities for developing a fundamental and functional understanding of biomedical engineering. Based on solid mathematical and physical foundations, useful medical knowledge, and a vivid engineering spirit, we set out to develop technology that improves health and healthcare – and makes a difference.

Three tracks

The first year is mainly a broad compulsory segment, with courses in anatomy and physiology, medical information systems, and signal theory. The second year offers in-depth specialization along three tracks:

  • Biomedical signals and instrumentation
  • Medical imaging
  • Medical informatics

Each track comprises approximately 25 compulsory ECTS credits and 15 elective credits. In the final semester, you write a thesis within your chosen specialization, at the department or in a hospital or the industry.

Student-centred learning

Learning outcomes are achieved through the thematic environment of student-centered learning, using teaching methods that include tutorial groups and home exams. After graduating, you will have the skills to formulate and solve engineering problems in the biomedical domain, implement and operate processes and systems, and evaluate engineering tools applied in medicine.

Career opportunities

Biomedical engineers are employed across the industry in hospitals, government agencies, and research facilities, designing various materials, devices, algorithms, processes, or systems. They often have coordinating or interfacing functions and some are involved in teaching. A master’s degree in biomedical engineering is also a formal qualification for postgraduate studies. Many of our alumni have continued their studies towards a doctoral degree.
