This insight in the functioning of the body refers to the musculoskeletal system, the cardiovascular system, the neurological system and elements of the pulmonary, gastro-intestinal and reproductive systems. Graduates possess a broad and active (i.e., application-oriented) knowledge in biomedical technology. They are familiar with the conventional theories and have mastered the common experimental and numerical techniques in the following domains: Biomechanics (musculoskeletal biomechanics and bio-fluid mechanics) Biomaterials Bio-instrumentation (sensors and actuators) Medical information technology (medical signal analysis and image processing) Graduates are able to apply their knowledge of the different interdisciplinary domains (medical and technological) in a creative way, expand it and integrate it in functional systems. Competent in conducting research Graduates are able to formulate research questions and translate these questions into a plan of action. In following this plan, they know how and when to adjust it. Graduates are able to independently process and apply new insights, methodologies and results within their own discipline as well as in related interdisciplinary fields. In doing this, they rely on interaction with and advice from experts in diverse technological disciplines and in medicine where necessary. Based on their scientific knowledge, graduates are able to evaluate the correctness of research findings and the conclusions drawn from them. Competent in designing Graduates can apply design methodologies to real situations, leading to a functional product (object, software, procedure) that will be evaluated in function of design requirements. Throughout the design process, graduates take the medical, technological, regulatory and economic boundary conditions into account, as well as the capabilities and limitations of the user of a medical-technological product (healthcare provider, patient, etc.). Graduates are able to creatively and independently process and apply new insights, methodologies and results within their discipline as well as in related interdisciplinary fields in order to design new medical-technological products. A scientific approach Graduates are capable of detaching themselves, when necessary, from the binding nature of the solution to a problem in order to look for long-term solutions and innovative ways of thinking that provide the employer with a strategic advantage in the long run. For that purpose, graduates possess a broad analytical, integrating and problem-solving mind and can combine knowledge from technical-scientific and medical-scientific domains. Graduates have a positive, forwardlooking attitude toward lifelong learning and are constantly seeking to improve their professional and scientific skills. They are able to critically select the most appropriate information sources (scientific literature, internet, workshops, conferences) and process the relevant pieces of information. For this, they rely on a critical attitude with respect to the scientific literature, data and their own findings. Graduates assume a critically constructive position vis-a-vis all new relevant findings and developments they encounter in the academic literature and explore further through their own research. This implies that the graduates have developed the attitude to actively keep track of new developments and to integrate these into their professional activities. Given the interdisciplinary nature of medical technology, the graduate ideally keeps up with a wide range of technological disciplines and medical science to discover opportunities for integration. Basic intellectual skills Graduates can retrieve a multiplicity of complex information (from the scientific literature, own research findings and any already existing alternative solutions to similar and/or related problems), relate it to their own research question, analyze, interpret, and integrate the information and form a reasoned judgment on it. Competent in collaboration and communication Graduates possess a basic knowledge of management techniques to bring technical-scientific projects to a successful conclusion. Graduates are able to function in a team and, when necessary, can take on the role of team leader. Graduates are able to translate technical concepts to medical experts and to actively participate in discussions with medial and technical experts. Graduates master the oral and body language needed to clearly and convincingly convey a message in their mother tongue as well as in English. Graduates are able to write technical reports and scientific articles that meet international standards. Takes the social and temporal context into account Graduates are able to analyze the societal consequences (economic, social, ethical, environmental) of new developments in biomedical technology and integrate these in academic work. They are able to perform their professional activities in an international context and, to this end, have a sufficient mastery of the English language. Graduates have a good understanding of their own role and responsibilities in relation to those of other actors in medicine and health care (healthcare providers, hospital managers, management of healthcare institutions, social security). Career perspectives Biomedical engineering is a rapidly growing sector, evidenced by an increase in the number of jobs and businesses. The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering was created to respond to increased needs for healthcare in our society. These needs stem from an ageing population and the systemic challenge to provide more and better care with less manpower and in a cost-effective way. Industry, government, hospitals and social insurance companies require engineers with specialised training in the multidisciplinary domain of biomedical engineering. As a biomedical engineer, you'll play a role in the design and production of state-of-the-art biomedical devices and/or medical information technology processes and procedures. You will be able to understand medical needs and translate them into engineering requirements. Conversely, you will be able to design medical devices and procedures that can effectively solve problems through their integration in clinical practice. For that purpose, you'll complete the programme with knowledge of anatomy, physiology and human biotechnology and mastery of biomedical technology in areas such as biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, bio-instrumentation and medical information systems. The programme will help strengthen your creativity, prepare you for life-long learning, and train you how to formalise your knowledge for efficient re-use. Careers await you in the medical device industry R&D engineering, or as a production or certification specialist. Perhaps you'll end up with a hospital career (technical department), or one in government.

MSc in Biomedical Science. The Biomedical Engineering programme focuses on the design of future diagnostic and treatment methods at hospitals and in the field. The interaction between the human organism, technical equipment, and methods is essential to medicine and technology. We are becoming increasingly dependent on advanced equipment for patient diagnosis and treatment—e.g. large CT scanners, PET scanners for studying molecular processes in cancer, as well as pacemakers and DNA chips for studying the genome. Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme offered by DTU in collaboration with the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. Study programme focus The study programme aims to provide MSc students with proper knowledge of the clinical problems facing the modern healthcare sector, enabling them to develop new technological solutions. Therefore, the study programme covers both engineering and human physiology courses, ranging from the functions of the organs at cell level to modelling physiological processes in the locomotive apparatus. Focus areas The Biomedical Engineering programme offers research-based teaching and the opportunity to specialize in one of the three focus areas: Signal and Model-based Diagnostics Image Diagnostics and Radiation Physics Biomechanics and Biomaterials However, the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a certain degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU and the University of Copenhagen. Career Due to their in-depth knowledge of mathematics, science, medicine, and technology, MSc graduates in Biomedical Engineering are capable of analysing complex issues and developing sound, viable solutions using high-tech tools. Typical fields of work You can help develop new methods and products aimed at preventing diseases, curing patients, and saving lives—e.g. heart monitoring, using intelligent computer programs to measure and estimate whether the patient’s heart functions normally, or whether the patient needs a pacemaker. You can also engage in cancer research, developing high-tech scanners indicating exactly where the surgeon should make the incision to remove a cancer tumour, or where to direct the beams to irradiate only the diseased tissue. Career opportunities Typical career opportunities include: Hospitals: further development of measuring methods and equipment participation in clinical research (modelling, planning, and conducting clinical trials) testing and maintenance of complex technical installations training of other staff Groups. Companies: product development and research participation in test planning sales, marketing, and service. Universities and research institutions teaching research.

You can do either a regular PhD or an industrial PhD, the latter with concurrent employment in a company. As a PhD student, you will be part of a research group and will carry out an independent scientific project. General admission requirements Only applicants holding either a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a specific programme. The specific programme states in details which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to meet supplementary educational activities. Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes. The supplementary requirements can be met as a part of the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. As part of the admission process, it will be decided whether the supplementary courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies or within the first semester. Courses to be passed prior to the commencement of studies must be passed no later than one semester prior to the commencement of studies. A maximum of 10 ECTS credits may be earned after the commencement of studies and within the first semester. If there is a need for supplementary courses equating to more than 10 ECTS credits, these credits must always be earned prior to the commencement of studies. Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are therefore charged for such supplementary courses. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn. The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).

Doctoral students are expected to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their field of study. An accelerated BS + MS degree is also available. Educational Objectives The goal of biomedical engineers is to improve human health through advances in healthcare and medicine. This includes advancing our understanding of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human injury, disease and the health complications associated with physiologic and sociologic factors such as aging, environment and diet. In this regard, we are living in an exciting time. In the last two decades or so we have witnessed, among numerous achievements, the decoding of the entire human genome, the birth of proteomic methods, the maturation of computerized tomography, dramatic advances in imaging and sensing technologies, the culture of stem cells, and advances in biomaterials that may eventually enable us to engineer tissues and even organs. Altogether, these achievements have dramatically augmented our potential for improving health care. However, addressing how to use these basic science research advances for improved health care represents a major challenge for biomedical engineers of the coming generation. Chronic illness is now a dominant issue in health care, consuming vast sums of healthcare dollars, personnel and facilities usage. This situation will only be exacerbated over the coming decades with the aging of the population. As a result, improvements in our ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat chronic illness, and to do so at reasonable cost, has become a focus of the national healthcare agenda. Accordingly, the goal of the biomedical engineering program at Binghamton University is to prepare graduate engineers to face not only these new 21st century challenges, but also to advance new technologies for better healthcare. Learning and Research Experiences The program provides the student with access to considerable resources, including: The Clinical Science and Engineering Research center with staff to assist in the conduct of clinical trials. Computing clusters for high speed data analysis, modeling, and simulation. Laboratory facilities equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for cell and tissue culture research, genomics research, proteomics research, molecularimaging, as wellasbiomaterials research facilities. Lab animal resources for small animal research. The Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S³IP) Center for micro and nano systems engineering. Students enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to collaborate with clinicians practicing at nearby medical centers, including Binghamton General Hospital, Wilson Hospital, the Upstate Medical Center, the Bassett Healthcare Center, and the Guthrie Health Center. The biomedical engineering program offers both master's and doctoral degrees. The scope of each degree is similar, but the depth of study differs. Typically a master's degree is completed in 1 ½ to 2 years. Students complete the core curriculum and electives, and undertake a research project. Doctoral students also complement the core coursework with electives but at the 600 level and conduct in-depth research where they demonstrate a contribution to the advancement of knowledge in their field of study. Doctoral students are also expected to demonstrate an understanding of the development of technologies for the healthcare industry. Thus, in addition to being prepared for academic or industry careers related to medical technology, they will have the background needed to pursue an entrepreneurial role in the healthcare field. To this end, incubator space and technology transfer support are available to students interested in pursuing new ventures. Professional Development Biomedical engineering graduate students have access to resources such as the Clinical Science and Engineering Research Center, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center. Incubator space and technology transfer support are also available to students interested in pursuing new ventures. For the graduate seminar that includes the Biomedical Engineering Lecture Series, the department invites several distinguished guest speakers in the field to discuss their research. The curriculum allows students space to explore specialties and orient their research in specific areas of interest throughout their course of study. Past research areas of interest include 3D bioprinting, biomaterials, nanomedicine and stem cells. A local chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society has also been established. Watson Career and Alumni Connections offers professional advice and services such as interview guidance, cover letter critiques and networking opportunities. After You Graduate Alumni of the program have pursued careers in both the public and private sectors for organizations including the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Graduates have also pursued doctoral positions in acclaimed institutions such as Boston University Medical Center, University of Rochester, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University.
